Ordered a Homelink off ebay yesterday. Thanks for the great instructions on how to install it. I'm sure I'll be able to get it in no problem thanks to all the posts.

You're right - using this post as a guide line I had no problem - people thinks it's a factory homelink - I have no issue though when interior light is on, works the same. Just make sure you get the right one...rolling code or not.

With the help of this thread, I also added the Homelink in the exact same place and love it.
Thanks Andretti.

Most cars will flash to pass when the turn signal lever is pulled towards you
even with the ignition off....


Old School trick...
OK, now THIS has my attention... I was thinking the same thing about avoiding a button on my dash somewhere.

157, Can you be a bit more specific on instructions on how to accomplish this? Thanks!

Someone did something similar on their Harley so that they remote would activate with the high beams. See this. It could easily work just as well with our Mustangs (convertible or hard top)

So I was wondering the same thing a couple weeks back. So I PM'd vasman and here is a condensed version of his response:
1. go to the back of the headlights and you find you high beam wire
2. get your favorite homelink and conect the possitive to your hibeam wire and the negative on your closest safe ground
3. program your homelink (hi beams on while you do that)
4. turn off the high beams
5. take some duct tape (or whatever) and tape down the button you just programed. might want to add a twist tie for added holddown (vasman had it fail a few times until he did that)
6. then pull back your hi beam lever and watch your door go up.
NOTE: try it a few times before you actually tape it incase you did program it correctly

I have gotten my homelink, but haven't hooked it up yet. I hooked up a 12v supply and did all the programming. The trick I found, for rolling code, was to hold your original remote VERY close to the homelink during step where you press the button on your original remote.

I'm toying with the idea of using the 'extra' buttons I have on my dash. I think those are only there on the '10s and '11s though. I have two 'blanks' under my heated seat buttons and two more 'blanks' where the HVAC buttons are. Not sure if they can easily be convered to buttons, and also not sure if I care to have the LED visible. Waiting to get warranty work done before I open up the dash.

Here is another thread from this forum: http://mustangforums.com/forum/2005-...-the-dash.html
The nice thing about this one is there is a link to a document where it explains the pin-outs for the circuit board within the homelink.

Here is another thread on this forum that is the same as this topic (adding it to the overhead console): http://mustangforums.com/forum/2005-...tallation.html
