The HomeLink module in my sun visor has stopped sending signals
to the garage door opener. Dealer says it's not covered under
extended warranty. He wants $500 for a new HomeLink equipped visor..

a HomeLink button to a different garage door? (If you don't have an
extra garage door, maybe a friend will let you, he can delete your
Even if there *was* something wrong on your car's end (much less likely
than a programming mismatch), I would look for a broken antenna
connection before I paid $50 for a new visor, let alone $500. Even
then, I would probably just buy a $10 remote. But odds are your
HomeLink transmitter is working just fine, just needs to be mutually
reprogrammed with your receiver.
