    My 2018 JLU did not have the visor with the garage door controls so we bought and installed one ourselves. Now the light works fine, but the garage door controls do not work. When I try to program the controls, it doesn't work. The lights do not even light up.

    Anyone upgraded their visor? Any suggestions as to how to get it work?

    Ok, just checking. I was confused initially when I got mine. Sorry I can't offer any other advice.

    I would like to know if this is possible since sadly most the jeeps on the lots do not seem to have the homelink garage door openers

    Im doing my research. I feel it can be done. I’m also checking with a friend of mine who works on Mopar, but I need to tell him a few details about the wires which means opening up the interior a bit. I just haven’t had the time to get back on the horse with this one.

    I have found threads that show how to have constant power.

    As of yet, I have not.

    I need to look at the wiring from the Jeep and the wiring from the visor. I believe my Jeep is not wired for the visor ... but I did read of a 'fix' in which you can tap into the mirror light wire.

    Would anyone have tips for garage door opener for a community garage? I live in an apartment building that has a garage. I’ve tried to use the stock garage door opener in my 2020 Sahara without luck. Any tips? Thanks in advance
