HomeLink Mirror Mod – Adding Homelink to your Leased Vehicle

leave a comment

What does an Inbound Marketer do on his day off? He makes a YouTube video documenting his latest act of geekery.

After leasing a 2014 Honda Civic, I discovered that the vehicle was not equipped with a programmable HomeLink transmitter. This is not my 2nd Homelink mod as I previously modified the center console in my 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman. See my website for that post.

Since this is a leased vehicle, I did not want to modify the car in any way that I could not undo. So, I purchased a used Gentex rear view mirror that has Homelink. Rather than hard wire the unit to the car, I decided to try and see if I could use a small 12 volt battery to power the unit.

Once complete, I programmed the remote and it works great!

Now once my lease is up, I can swap the HomeLink Mirror out for the original.
