Question about 2001 Nissan Pathfinder

Open Question

The driver side sun visor metal pivot bracket broke in half. It appears the wiring to the Homelink garage door opener runs through this. I know I can order the bracket but am unsure of what to do with the wiring for the Homelink. What do you think the easiest fix would be?

SOURCE: Broken sun visor

The sunvisor is attached to the roof with 3 screws on the outboard end of the visor (towards the door). Once you removed these 3 phillips head screws and pull the attaching bracket down, there may be an electrical connector you will need to unplug. This is not a difficult job.

Hope this is helpful!

SOURCE: Sun visor on driver's side

I had the same problem with my 2007 Sonata. I took it into the dealership and they were aware of the problem and fixed it.

SOURCE: 2007 Toyota Camry LE - broken sun visor

most likely a defect. call the dealer and see if toyota has issued a recall on the visor and you might have it replaced for free. other than that, there's always the junkyard.

SOURCE: My Kia 2007 sun visor is broken?

I've had to have this fixed twice by Kia. It's under warranty, so it's a free, fast fix. They do need to redesign this!!

SOURCE: 2007 Optima sun visor is loose.

My 2007 Optima Driver's Side visor also had the same problem. I removed it with the screws under the plate at the base of the visor. Upon further inspection, the plastic inside the "hinge" had shattered inside the plastic sleeve. I am currently attempting some at-home super-glue-and-epoxy repair. If this works, I've saved myself a couple hundred bucks in repairs.

Trying to sync 2002 volvo s60 garage door opener with garage

Hold any of the buttons down while you press the door opener remote and wait for alight in the dash to flash that the code has been learned by the car. You may also google "HOMELINK" programming for more info.

3 buttons on the underside of my 2001 sebring visor

Those are HomeLink buttons. You can program them to work in place of a garage door opener or other infrared device like that. Just pick one, hold it down, press the garage door opener button while aiming it at the visor, and then release the buttons. That allows you to use the visor button instead of a door opener.

99 rx lexus 300 driver side sun visor won't stay up; dealer wants $900 to replace it !!!!!!!! Anyone out there have any solutions or experience same problem?

This is a common problem with your vehicle. There are lots of blogs online about others having the same issues. Replacement price for the visor has been quoted from as low as $500 to $900... because of the garage door control. As far as a fix... the only thing people have been able to do is to wedge the pivot point of the visor with paper or other hard materials to cause additional friction. The only real permanent solution is replacement, but unfortunately that visor is quite expensive because of the garage door controller that is built into it.Keep in mind that even wedging something into the pivot point may only prove to be a temporary solution, but one that many drivers find as the best alternative due to the cost of replacement.

My sun visor on the driver's side just cracked and

I fabricated my own brackets for my 2004 Ford Explorer to mount (or should I say re-mount) my sun visors after they both crumbled and fell on us. I cut some thin metal (tin I think) and put 5 layers together to form the bracket. If there is any interest, I'll upload some pictures and instructions over the week-end to show how to install it. I'm thinking about offering to make these for $12+ shipping for one bracket or $20+shipping for a pair.

Garage door opening when we open door of XC90

I solved the problem.

My wife had placed her Jabba Bluetooth hands-free speaker on the right hand side of her visor...right on top of the Homelink button.

As best I could make out, when the driver's door was opened it created just enough movement such that the Homelink system was activated. By moving the Jabba to the left side of the visor (where I would normally place it) the problem went away.

Driver's visor 3 buttons what for and how do i use it infiniti i30

Those buttons are for you to be able to program your garage door opener so that you don't need to have to original clipped to your visor all the time. The procedure is this: 1) put the key in ignition in postition 2 (car not running) 
2) hold down both homelink buttons on the outsides of the homelink transmitter (to reset any existing codes) you might have to do it for 20-30 seconds. Red light on homelink will flash rapidly then let go. 
 3) Now, with the garage remote in one hand and hold the button on the homelink you want to program (keep holding homelink until it pulses, not a rapid flash, takes about 20 sec.) While it is pulsing, hold down the garage opener as close to the homeling button as possible while depressing door opener button also.
Shortly after doing this you will see the homelink start to flash rapidly (this means it is learning the code). 
-  let go of both buttons once it is flashing rapidly and 
4) go to motor of door opener and hit the learn button (a light should turn on)
5)return to the car a press the homelink button you programmed once, twice, or maybe up to three times until you see garage door open/close.

You may need to have someone help you with this procedure.

Three buttons on drivers side sun visor

ok, this other guy has the buttons your talking about confused with 3 buttons on the drivers side door panel, just above the handle...
the buttons you are looking at on the visor are programmable to open your garage door...however since i've never owned a garage door that i use at the same time i've owned my grand cherokee, i have never tried setting it, so i'm not exactly sure how to go about that...

Garage door opener on sunvisor (02 Expedition)

Rather than try to explain it here, I'll give you a link where you can download the Owner's manual. See page 86 for information about the HomeLink system. That includes the procedure you need.

How do you program...

The built-in system in your '98 Jeep is made by a company called "HomeLink", a subsidiary of Johnson Controls Inc. The website,, has a walk through tutorial that should do the trick. It's a matter of taking and existing hand-held remote control for your opener, pressing and holding its button, and pressing and holding the button you wish to use in the visor at the same time (with the remote positioned very close to the visor). The appropriate flashes on the LED above the row of three buttons will let you know when the HomeLink system is set up. Depending on you opener, you may then need to locate a "learn" button on the overhead garage door opener mechanism, and program the HomeLink system into the opener's memory.
