Cheap Garage Door Opener.

Did a search and saw this was already done, so nothing new. If anyone is thinking of doing this it is very easy to do and cost me $15 and change in parts.
Speedometer reset switch PN - 67854-98 $12.52
Boot PN - 67880-94 $2.00

Drilled two 5/64 holes in the side for the wires to pass thru.


Soldiered the two leads to the micro switch on circuit board.


Finished results.


Drilled a 3/8 hole for the switch to pass thru. And Placed the opener down in under the speedo.


Looks like it came from the factory.

I don't have any photos, or video of mine, but I did the same mod as this guy did on his BMW. Works great.

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.
