Default 2012 Accord Homelink

We'll be taking delivery of a 2012 EX-L in a couple of weeks. Since
it's the 4-cyl model, it doesn't have the Homelink system, so I'm
going to have to install it. Does anyone know if the 2012
configuration is the same as the 2008-2011 units?

Go to this link and particularly Payerman's post on the 2nd page:

http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/sh...light=homelink

I just installed the transmitter in a 2012 Accord we got in December.
Works great. I took a few more pictures of the wiring in the overhead
install. I'll see if I can upload them in that forum for additional
information.

I bought the transmitter for something like $158 from Majestic Honda.
People quibble about the price and indicate you may be able to get it
for $125. I decided to just go buy the thing rather than spend a lot
of time screwing around sub-optimizing things. Never could find
anyone selling at that price myself.

I don't recommend you use the method that adds the battery to power
the transmitter. When the battery runs down, you've got to pull the
overhead to change it. Payerman's method of tying into the existing
wiring works fine. I wired mine so it's hot all the time and skipped
wiring up the lighting, since the thing is right over your head and
easy to find by feel.
