So i got the Genk41 mirror from ebay and powers up auto dimming works, but the homelink wont Program.

The ebay posting had said it might need a repeater for some garage door openers.. The strange thing is the homelink on my pathfinder 2014 works just fine without a repeater.

Here are the model numbers for the actual mirror's.

PF — 0B12HL4

Leaf — ZTVHL3

Any suggestions?

If I cant program it I will plan to send the Genk41 back and purchase the one with model 0B12HL4 seems a different model for Gentex..

any suggestions?


Thanks,
Jay

Does any of this help?

I remember clearing all the codes out of my aftermarket compass/homelink mirror (hold the two outer buttons until flashing, about 20 seconds), then using the garage remote pointed at the mirror, while pressing the desired mirror button at the same time as pressing the garage remote until it rapidly flashed.

I will have to double check my brand, but I want to say it is a Gentex. not sure on model number...

Let us know how it goes!

unfortunately it does not.. I tried the instructions multiple times.. I have successfully programmed other homelink mirrors in the past to the same garage door opener.. so i am almost sure i am following the steps correctly..

I tried to call homelink support but their wait time was crazy long and hand to hangup. I have emailed them yesterday but still to hear back..

Do you have a newer garage door opener? Some of the newer ones use something called Security+ 2.0 and require a repeater to work with older homelink systems. A google search shows that the GENK45 doesn't have Security+ 2.0, but the one in your pathfinder probably does.

Spoke with homelink support and confirmed this would need a repeater...

I don't like the idea of using a repeater.. so I am thinking I will buy a newer homelink mirror..

I am wondering get if someone has a factory home link can you tell me the model number from behind the mirror please? Per the home link guy newer cars should have the newer home link mirror so if a 2015 or 2016 owner with factory home link can share the model number I'll get that.

Or I can plan to get the same as my pathfinder and use that since I know that works.

Thanks,
Jay

I have a 2017 S.

This thread is great, thanks to all the people adding photos and instructions.

Will a mirror that's a Hyundai part (has homelink and compass) work for my Leaf S? It comes with a cable but maybe the connectors on that cable only fit a Hyundai?
The Hyundai part number is 3X062 ADU01.

Also for the installation, if I correctly summarize the thread then I just need to pass the wire to the overhead console and connect the power one to the feed power into the overhead light as that has a 10 minute timer so it won't drain the battery. Is that right?

Thanks
Amnon

The homelink mirrors have a different connector than the one in your S - so you have to splice the wires no matter what. A lot of us are using the existing power for the auto-dimming mirror, which is switched off when you shut off the car.

My S has a regular, non powered mirror.

Also is there any reason the "Hyundai" mirror wouldn't work?
