Flash2Pass Installation


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have photos of their installation of the Flash2Pass garage door opener on a 996 that was spliced OUTSIDE of the headlight enclosure. I know some have accessed the wiring before it went into the headlight enclosure. That makes sense to me. More room to 'maneuver' available for the connection. Anyone provide a guide to getting the wire out to behind the bumper guard for increased distance to activating the opener?

I know some have had problems installing as per manufacturer's instructions so I am trying to ask those who have had their travails to help me through this install with minimal loss of stomach lining.

Joe ... the DIY I followed was not from a manufacturer. I just used the flash to pass wire lead to provide power for my own 12v opener, taking the place of the battery. The lead sounds like it should be the same you are asking about, however. Its in a bundle just to the passenger side of the battery. When you think you've found it, use a test light to make sure. Take a look at these.

Wiring diagram of the headlight. Will use the white wire that powers the flash to pass headlight.

Next 2 photos show an easy place to access this wire. Just to the passenger side of the battery in a bundle of wires.

Use a wire tap to connect the positive lead to the white wire.

Kim,

Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for.
