Oh no, this poor man that has to reach up and press a button everything he goes home. HA HA! JK, do whatever works for you.Easy peasy... Fifteen bucks on Amazon. Tesla's $300 escapade is an insult to my intellgence.

Got to press a button on my Bugatti too.Oh no, this poor man that has to reach up and press a button everything he goes home. HA HA! JK, do whatever works for you.
Homelink was worth every penny for me. I had it standard in my previous Tesla and I bought it for my new one. Over the lifetime ownership of the vehicle it will cost fractions of a dollar per day for it. That is worth it for my convenience.
Yes, unfortunately it fires even without key/connected phone.Does anyone know if the homelink can be used without a key? I had homelink in my Honda and it would work without the key in the car so if someone either broke the window (or I happened to forget to lock the door) when I parked on my driveway they would be able to gain access to my garage by pressing the button. Not sure if the Tesla's version requires a key or not. Does anyone know?
First, I think you're asking for trouble when buying from eBay to circumvent the installation cost. You've spent $45,000+ for the car and trying to save a $100 just doesn't make good sense.The Y is not like the 3 for this. Just had a tech install mine today, just need to take out the frunk and it's cover, you don't need to mess with the bumper at all. The software update actually took longer than the hardware install. Less than 15 minutes to install the hardware, about 20-30 minutes for the firmware/software update.
The optical sensors should have reversed the door or should be readjusted.And be careful swiping away the new Cold Weather Driving Tip message that pops on OVER the HomeLink button. I swiped it away and in the process my finger but have touched the HomeLink button and it started closing my open garage door as I was backing out. The garage door came down and hit my rear hatch. It auto reversed after touching the car but not before leaving scuff marks on the painted area of the hatch.
Tesla needs to relocate the Cold Weather Tip message or allow the owner to turn that off.
Back on subject of installing Homelink yourself I found out the Tesla released "" Tesla toolbox you will need this software and a laptop and this Tesla Diagnostic Cable Model 3 / Y Diagnostic Cable For Tesla Toolbox( on eBay Tesla Diagnostic Cable Model 3 / Y Diagnostic Cable For Tesla Toolbox | eBay) for about 65 dollars not sure if it can do the homelink. That is what I am trying to find out I did find this "After installing a homelink module it needs to be enabled with the Tesla Toolbox by running "TEST-SELF_ VCFRONT_X_HOMELINK"." do not know if the toolbox Tesla selling has this function. Does anybody know???
