Can you please tell me the part numberof the homelink for a 2012 SLE?  I am confused since Lamping said he used one from an '07 vehicle and I have been looking at a 20929720 which I think is for later models and is a little pricier?  I am hoping there is a cheaper way. Thanks.

I went with the opener for an '07 because the transmitter buttons are lighted. Also It is much cheaper to get a used opener than a new one. It is also important to get one with a pigtail for wiring. GM uses the same transmitter across many platforms.

Last time I was at the junk yard I grabbed one and put it in my 98 Saturn SC2. They charged my $3 for the unit.

Here are some links to some available on Ebay (All are around $20 USD). If you decide to search on your own, remember the importance of the pigtail as some sell without it.

The main difference between older transmitters and new ones (the ones that came factory for the 2012) is that the old ones have the green light in the buttons as you can see from my picture on the previous page, where the new ones do not. This difference means you have one extra wire to deal with when doing the instillation, but the necessary connection is still in the harness in the roof for the 2012. If you really need part numbers they can be found, but as you suggested you wanted to go cheap, I'm not going to bother looking them up as you can't get cheaper than used.

I got an overhead console off eBay with the homelink buttons, and made the swap. No power at all to the homelink part, though. It won't function at all. Overhead lights and the little LED that illuminates the cup holder area work. How can I get power to the homelink?

Without knowing your model year and seeing the wiring in the headliner and the console, it will be hard to figure this out from where I'm sitting.

It's a 2012 SLE. It looks like the pins that match up with the wires on the console connector aren't present in the headliner side of the connector.

Interesting... They were there in my '12 SLE. Can you upload a pic of the connectors to an image hosting site like imgur.com or google photos and post a link here?

I have the pics loaded in my Photobucket account, but it won't let me post links to them. I just tried to send you a PM, but not real sure it went through either. Let me know. And thanks for offering to help and take a look.

I got the PM. The links are good. How do you know there is no power? What vehicle & year did this console come from?

EDIT: Also, everything looks to be there from what I can tell. You bought the complete console, correct?

The console is from a 2010 Buick Enclave. I took the chance that the overhead consoles in the Acadia/Enclave/Traverse were interchangeable, but maybe they're not. The connectors do match, and it does install correctly to the headliner. The lights and small orange LED light up as expected, but I get no response at all from the homelink buttons. The indicator doesn't light up when I press any of the buttins, try to perform the reset described in the manual, etc.

Any chance you have a multimeter to check voltage and ground continuity?

Also, a better picture looking down the wires at the back of the connector of the console would help to make sure that is correct.

Did you get any warranty on this part? It could be the homelink module itself is not good.

Make sure the fuse labeled "MSM" (10A) is good as well. That powers the red/white wire. The fuse is in the I/P block at the passenger foot well.

I don't have a multimeter to check the wires. The seller has refunded my purchase price and said to keep the unit, so I'm not out any money at this point. I'll try to get a better pic of the back of the connectors. I've spent time installing running boards lately, and will get back to the homelink issue shortly.

[ forum won't let me post links to pics yet, so I had to work around that ]

A few months ago we purchased my wife a 2012 Acadia.
We replaced a 2005 Terraza.  The Buick was loved, but it
didn't look as cool as the Acadia.

One thing I miss was the homelink buttons on the overhead console.

I read through a lot of posts and decided to try the "simple" swap.

I bought an overhead console from a 2009 Traverse.  The ad said
it will fit the 2007 to 2015 Acadia... great!  $40 plus shipping.

I received just what I ordered... correct color, buttons, etc.
I removed the overhead console from the Acadia and discovered
that my 2012 console has a gray 12-pin electrical connector:

see oldpizza.net/images/Acadia/IMG_5698_small.jpg for pic
see oldpizza.net/images/Acadia/IMG_5699_small.jpg for pic

The one from the 2009 Traverse has a green 16-pin connector.

see oldpizza.net/images/Acadia/IMG_5693_small.jpg for pic
see oldpizza.net/images/Acadia/IMG_5697_small.jpg for pic

I managed to remove all the wires from both connectors without
breaking anything.

I discovered that the 2009, green connector had eight wires, and the
2012, gray connector had only six.. this could be interesting.

I got the bright idea of looking at the connector in the ceiling of the Acadia:

see oldpizza.net/images/Acadia/IMG_5702_small.jpg for pic
see oldpizza.net/images/Acadia/IMG_5703_small.jpg for pic

It has eight wires... This may actually work!

When I started pushing wires from the 2009 console into the
2012 connector [using the photos as a guide], I discovered
  • The 2009 console has a red wire that the 2012 doesn't, but the Acadia has a red wire that wasn't hooked to the console
  • The 2009 console has an extra gray wire, but the Acadia has an extra gray wire that wasn't hooked up
  • The 2012 console has a green wire; the 2009 console has an extra black wire


I traced the "new" red wire on the 2009 console.  It runs to the homelink.
I plumbed that to the connect to the red wire in the ceiling of the Acadia.

The extra gray wire in the 2009 console runs to the homelink.  I plumbed
that to the "extra" gray wire in the ceiling of the Acadia

I fired-up the ohm meter and discovered that the green/gray pair in one corner
of the 2012 go to the OnStar/bluetooth mic.  The black/gray pair in one corner
of the 2009 console go to the OnStar/bluetooth mic in that console. 
I plumbed-in the black/gray the same as the green/gray was.

I ran out of 2009 wires at the same time I ran out of wire in the
ceiling of the Acadia.  I put everything together and it works!

A quick trip up the ladder to push the "learn" button on the garage door
opener, and we're back in business!

No more fumbling in the console for that opener button.

Now, I need to track-down the cup holders that go in the back
of the center console :-)

I'm sure others have done this same thing, but I haven't seen any pics
like the ones I took.  I hope they can help someone.
