Does anyone know which fuse protects the HomeLink control pad? On my
2004 Expedition the HomeLink can be activated when the ignition is
off.So if the truck is outside my home and they break into it. One
press of the button and the garage door will open. Pretty stupid
arrangment. On my Audi HomeLink is dead until the ignition is on.
I need to rewire it but for now I just want to disable it. Thanks,
Did you think to check your Owner's Guide? I did and it is not
explicitly mentined, but since the Homelink module is in the Drivers
Visor, I'd guess it is fed by the same feed as the vanity mirror
light. This is fuse 24. Pull in and see. Only problem is, this fuse
also feeds - Interior demand lamps (front map/dome lamp, 2nd row
dome/map lamp, glove compartment lamp, cargo lamp, roof rail lamps,
vanity mirror lamps), Battery saver relay coil, Battery saver relay
Don't even worry. If someone is breaking into your truck they will break
into the house if they want to.
Just toss the patio furniture or the grill right through the sliding door
and in they are.
If your that worried use the transmitter that came with the opener and take
it in with you. Home link is still active so people don't lock themseleves
out of house which is way more common than thieves breaking into your truck
to access your house.
Many folks don't even have a house key on the ring when being used to the
garage access, a big issue when the power goes out.
I guess the thought behind it was that if you are parking in the garage, the
vehicle is in the garage, so how would they break into it? ...And if you
are parking outside, how would it be any different than the garage door
remotes that 99% of the people that have them keep on thier visor?
Don't get me wrong - I agree with you that it is a stupid arraignment and
they could have done better since they're wiring the car from the begining
and can put that feature in to simply cut power as well as the fact that you
can take a remote with you or hide it in the car, but you can't rip the
visor off if you want...
