I swapped mine out with am autodimming Homelink mirror and tapped it into the overhead map light. Works great! It stays powered on for 10 min after the car shuts off (like a map light would) but no big deal.
That's fantastic! Can you please go into detail about...
1) your exact parts list, such as which HomeLink mirror model # (could you please photograph front & back?), clip-in wiring connector, wire cover, splicing supplies, etc.? Did it have a compass on the mirror (could be another Nissan, non-LEAF replacement)?
2) tips on removing map light cover assembly & were you able to completely disconnect it to get it out of the way while working in there?
3) which wires you connected & HOW you spliced them? Someone reminded me that if the HomeLink doesn't have constant 12v power, the programming will be lost. How many wires did you have to connect, three?
4) any other tips, tricks & traps?
