Homelink LED not working - heated seats are working

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, my new to me 2006 boxster S is having an issue

 

my homelink LED does not light up under any circumstances

 

I've followed the book procedures and the homelink.com online procedures

 

I never get any blinking lights

 

I did check and my heated seats do work and the led lights up as well

 

I bought the car used and have not done a new owner reset yet either, should I?

A couple of updates

1.  I checked all fuses - I had one that was over voltage 15A instead of 7.5A, so I swapped in a lower amp fuse but it was for the PCM so I don't think it's related

2.  I went ahead and did a factory reset on the PCM 2.1

 

Still no lights on the homelink panel - everything else I've tested thus far is just fine except the frunk light - it's out but bulb is good - going to have to open it up and try the wd-40 fix later

 

 

ANY ideas on this issue?  I'm assuming since I can't get any lights from the homelink, that's it's not worth calling homelink over

 

Thanks in advance!

So I mistook the rear window heater ( is that the the one in the convertible or the one with the top down) for a seat heater

 

turns out I don't have heated seats but I did the PCM reset anyway so that addresses that possibility of a fix

 

I also popped the covers off the buttons and all seems well underneath and with the button actuating the switch

 

anyone with other thoughts, I'd love to hear them, thanks

I found Loren's reply to someone else with a similar issue.

 

I'm going to try her suggestion next.

 

Start with fuse F2 (80A) (on the current distributor).
