Can't find it in the specs, so to you owners: Does the Cube have a garage door opener that learns your code? My current car does and it's OLD, built into the sun visor. Learns up to three codes. Surely the Cube would have this. Not a deal breaker, but having only one remote from the former house owner, I'd need to figure out how to have a spare.

no dice, i wish the cube had this feature built into the rear view mirror (homelink) like my old 07 infiniti g35 sedan sport. i loved that feature but now we have to use the giant remote that came with our house. :-/

There are replacements to be found at most Home Centers like Lowes or Home Depot, even my local small town Hardware store carries and can order many brands.

But... You can get a keychain remote for most systems and heck its way smaller that the brick you got with your home system. You might even incorporate it into the visor, or console.

Oh, and yes, nice find on the garage remote mod, I am very interested in doing that.

I got my garage door opener from: Sanford & Son via the internet.
Or you can call them at" (888) 264-5034

I have a Sears Opener.
So I got the Lifemaster opener, SKU 83LM.
It clips on the visor in the car.
Price was $22.75 plus sales tax. No shipping fees.

Yeah, makes sense. Just that I didn't want to tear apart my garage door opener...and a new one is about as much as the F2P. Plus you can put up to six transmitters on a F2P so I'll have one on both cars and one on my motorcycle.

Converting the pushbutton on your remote garage door opener and replacing it with the head lights is a great idea.
What you are doing is shorting the pushbutton switch so that it is always activated.
Then you replace the internal battery by running wires to a headlight's bright-light wire.
This supplies the power to the opener when you turn on your bright lights.
Thus with the switch closed and powered by the car's battery, you open the garage door.

This would be a great fix if you have an opener whose internal battery has died.
But it seems like an unnecessary job when simply pushing the button works.

The down side is when driving down a back country road with your headlights on, you may be opening other garage doors.
But that may be a lot of fun.
