    Tesla would need to activate it in your car, so you would need to convince them to sell you one and do that.

    From what i've read on the US rebuild forums, If you find and install a module it will not initially work. Once a new software update is available it will go through and update the firmware and update the BCM to say that there is a new module there.

    Very curious to know how you get on.
    How much was the module and where did you buy it?

    Not sure how correct that is. My car has the module, but it hasnt activated during any of the recent updates. Tesla activated the module discretely and without me doing anything last weekend.

    Its not about activating it. It was always active, Getting FW upgrades if there were available in updates, Just not displayed on the MCU.
    There will be a point where Tesla enable it for all, and the MCU will detect if the BCM is there or not and display the icon appropriately.
    We can see this occurring over the last week primarily with more and more getting the option to enable Homelink

    Just got it working on my 2017 June build model S. My controller wasn't supposed to be compatible (Vicway) but it works fine! If you've tried unsuccessfully to program it in the past, make sure to delete that profile and start with a new one.

    Went to my parent's house and programmed in a second homelink entry flawlessly. This one was a B&D controller and there was no programming involved of the receiver, it just worked after detecting the signal from the remote control.

    I will let you know as soon as I receive it, and try to get it online.

    I picked it up off the US Ebay. It was around $150USD.

    Must of been an older B&D, because the new ones will not program correctly, I had to install a secondary receiver to get it to work.
    Many thanks again to paulp
