I did a little video to show how to use the Pilot PL-SW29 remote unit to hook up auxiliary lighting to the Homelink buttons. Doing it this way eliminates the need to run wire into the cab or mount switches. So if you don't have the Aux switches from the factory, don't fret. I got you covered. Sorry about the camera work.

I didn't mention it in the video but the ground from the lights goes to a body ground NOT the Pilot box. The supplied Velcro will hold it to the battery blanket without issue.
This made me think of controlling my interior LED lights (which already had a remote) from the homelink buttons great idea!

Is there any issue with programming the homelink buttons to run the relays? I'm assuming the relays don't use rolling codes. Also, does anyone know if it would be a good idea to put diode's on the power leads to prevent canbus issues?

where did you find this little jewel? I've checked numerous places including Amazon and they're saying none in stock.

Is there another brand that has a similar product that will do the same thing?
