    Is anyone else having issues with HomeLink chiming when it auto-opens or closes? I have the checkbox enabled in the HomeLink setting screens, but it only seems to chime less than half of the time.

    Gotcha, thanks. Is there a running list of known problems that is kept somewhere?

    This one really sucked because the auto open inadvertently went off as we were leaving town for the weekend... Got a call from the neighor the next night wondering why we had left our garage door open for 24 hours+.

    My chime unchecks itself every time the car shuts off.

    I remember before SW 8.0, my home link worked perfect (auto open only). Now, I disable the auto open and just do it manually. Does anyone have similar observation?

    My homelink has never failed? Auto open or auto close?

    It opens/closes the door about 95% of the time with auto open/close, but just doesn't do the chime like it is supposed to for me.

    Go into homelink and recheck the chime box, you will have to do this every morning for some reason it will uncheck itself over night.

    Somebody needs to find the "[x] Reset Chime Sound Nightly" configuration and unselect it. :confused:

    2.48.16 has it back again and stays with me daily. Had to reset it though after the update.

    My chime stopped working with the recent firmware update. I can’t seem to locate were you turn it on or off. Can you tell me where it is?

    My chime is working every time I think since on of the last updates, you go into homelink and check the chime boxes that will show up with each homelink you have set up.
