    Default BARR's Pass Button 2 Garage Door Opener Mod

    Like many others I wanted to install a button for my garage door opener. I intuitively looked at the seldom used Pass button since it is a momentary button just like the garage door opener buttons.

    I started by reading the wiring diagram and found that the pass button was simply paralleled with the brights switch. I dismantled the left side switch module and followed the Pass button wires. I found that they attached to the brights switch wires about 6 inches after leaving the switch module. I disconnected the wiring harness from where it plugged in behind the headlight and pulled the entire harness off the bike. I taped a new set of wires to the end of a hanger and pushed them through the harness tubing. I then cut the pass button wires where they attached to the headlight bright switch wires and taped up the stubs. I stripped and attached the pass button wires to the 2 new wires I just ran through the harness sleeving and reassembled and reinstalled the left side switch module.
    Next I opened up my garage door module, soldered a couple of wires to the momentary button connections on the bottom of the circuit board and ran them out the side the garage door opener case. The original switch is still functional since I'm just paralleling the connections. I attached those 2 wires to the wires that I ran to the pass button and tested my Pass button garage door opener.....sweet!

    I just tie wrapped everything in place and reassembled the headlight cover and job complete.

    Good idea No garage door but I wonder if that will work with an electric gate opener

    I would imagine that it would work with pretty much any device of that nature.

    I thought about using the pass switch for the garage door as well... I actually had it all apart and was cut and soldiered everything until I realized how much I actually use it at night.

    I installed a small button on the bottom back of right side cover. You can not even tell it is there. I also used a 1/8" stero plug on the garage door opener so i could take it off easily and use it anywhere else... if anyone is interested I will take pics....

    I'd like to see how you did that. Sounds like it might be a nice way to do it

    I'm surprised to hear that people are using that button at night. I ride with my high beams on both day and night, at day for visibility and at night so I have enough time to brake after seeing an obstacle. Way too easy to outrun your low beams at night in my opinion! I have the flash 2 pass opener on mine and it works great. Pretty much the same set up as what you did without the soldering. Great Mod!

    I was recently cut off 3 times in one day and found myself thinking of another useful mod and function for that button....I suspect this one may prove to have some therapeutic benefits as well

    Great mod. Looks something like what I want to do. I never use it anyway. I always run with my brights on at any time of the day. Makes sure everyone can see me and that I can see well in front of me.

    i done the same mod as well last year. i mounted mine in the same place and used gasket sealant around the edges of the garage opener to keep moisture out. i liked using the pass button because i didnt want to drill holes in anything or mount a button for it.
    if it won't fit, FORCE IT!

    I did my garage door opener mod but the system I used was under 40 bucks. I do not have any pic to show you. I did have to drill a hole for the remote button on the bottom side of my left side panel. the button is tiny not quite the size of a pencil eraser it works well and was a cheep mod. it took me about 15, 20 mins to do!!

    No URL, only the pics I posted.
    The toughest part for me was dismantling and reassembling the switch module but since I have already found and have shown you the wires you need, you don't need to disassemble that module at all. You just remove the whole switch assembly and wire harness from headlight cover. Cut the wire harness tubing back to expose the pass wires and insert your 2 new wires into the wire harness then attach to the garage door opener and pass wires as shown.

    Good luck, it is a sweet and convenient mod that costs nothing

    ...Oh and the mini gun upgrade instructions are in process.

    It's the mini-gun mod I was talking about.

    I already have a flash to pass module installed that does not change the button function.
    (It was $29)

    Buy a module called a TR7 from eBay about $20 set it to read pulses and set it for 3 pulses. connect the output to you door opener and input to the high beam

    When you use pass button for 3 flashes it opens the door

    Thumbs up

    Here is another alternative that I used. It's $29.95 and easy to install. I put the entire install in the headlamp nacelle with a mini garage door opener.....You want the AS5PG2.
    The web address is www.autoswitch.com

    would any 3 flashes from a car or bike open the door? does it have security feature?

    Its has to be 3 flashes from your bike within 5 seconds for the module to read the electrical pulses and send them to your garage remote. it has nothing to do with the flashes as such you dont even have to have a headlight bulb as your just reading the signal to the light

    i just did the same mod, slightly different. Grabbed a Genie Universal remote from Lowe's. Soldered two wires to the switch circuit board, sealed it all up with black silicone, and velcroed it inside the right-side painted panel, behind the rear jug. Just below that is the switch I installed for the Pro-Cycle Tach a few years back. I don't use the record feature anymore, so I wired that switch to the remote. Works great.

    Very good idea M,LTS. Neat idea and install, remotes are cheap so why not mount it rather then carry it.
