Introduction: Remote Garage Opener to Chevrolet Equinox

This how a integrated my Remote Garage Opener in my 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. Really easy and very fun to do. Be applicalbe to any car ...

Step 1: Soldering

Found with multimeter the right connectors to momentary switch

Step 2: Drill

Drill hole on the side for wires. Close box and plug the momentary switch. Test it.

Step 3:

Remove ceiling consol. Protect it with masking tapes (or not ... up to you). I use dremel. You can use utility knike with multiple pass.

Step 4: Glued!

Install switch and glued it (i use glue because the clips on the switch are small thickness, i canot use them. So I cut them and glued it.)

Step 5: Final Install

Put the remote in the ceiling or use velcros to stack it in place. Replace the ceiling console ... Voilà!

My wife's new Hyundai Tucson has buttons for opening the garage door built into the rear view mirror. We only had to follow instructions for programming and the factory button opens our garage door. I am surprised this is not part of your Equinox. We have rented an Equinox a couple of times.

What a comment ... Don't think I would not use the factory button if a had ones? Seriously ... what are you doing here?

Please do not take my comment as an insult. I once published an Instructable on a modification to a Dremel. Several commented that newer Dremels come with that modification as a standard feature. They did not know older Dremels did not have that feature. I did not know newer Dremels have that feature. We all learned something. I was sharing information.
