Lightbulb Adding Homelink and Maplights

I searched and didn't come up with any posts about adding a homelink so I thought I would share. I added the CL overhead maplight/homelink to my 90 lx. It is basically the same as adding in any other of the maplights

made a template


cut out the hole


added wood mounting blocks and tapped in threads


wired it to the dome light


used a plug off an old harness


mounted up


It is tan and still needs to be painted but I am going to wait untill after I recover the headliner

Hmm interesting, does the Homelink function? I made my own DIY "homelink" using an old garage door remote with the button extended and mounted in the center console. It worked great until my garage door opener died.

I wired up the maplights into dome light so they come on with door open, with dome light switched on. They still work independently with the normal maplight switches.

I tied into the dome light behind the on/door/off switch so I could defeat door trigger when leaving the doors open for a while


at the homelink, The swithes are double throw so I soldered wires into the the unused normally closed contact. These keeps everything isolated without having to use diodes.


Both swithes are wired up to single contact point that connects to center pin of homelink connnector. This way it will unplug with factory connector

Ah, so nice to see quality work on the site.

Very clean installation I must say. I had a 91-95 Legend Coupe dome light that had provisions for tweeters ages ago that I wanted to work with, but the space between the headrests was always too small.

My Mom's Pathfinder has homelink, but I've never toyed around with it, b/c we don't have a garage. This is the system that can also turn on lights inside the house correct?

Some LED bulbs would be a nice finishing touch for the setup.

Hey guys,

I am attempting to do this DIY. 5 bought this Homelink unit from a 2004 TSX:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=170689305719

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/_W0QQ...KQ3aMEWNXQ3aIT

The unit has 2 plugs running to it. One is a plug for just the dome lights. There another green plug that has 6 wires running to it. One wire, a green colored wire, is connected to one of the wire running to the other wire harness that connects to the dome lights.

I am trying to find out which wires are for the Homelink buttons. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

What year CL did you get that setup out of? That is some great work man and a kickass upgrade! I would so love to have homelink in my CB.
