Flash 2 Pass Garage Gate Opener Instructions - Mini Mania Inc.Flash2Pass™ Installation

The Flash2Pass™ transmitter and receiver are designed as a do-it-yourself installation. It is very simple and straight forward if you follow the instructions included in every set. If you purchase a separate Flash2Pass™ transmitter or receiver, instructions are not only included for installation but also for programming the transmitter/s to the receiver/s.

Transmitter installation in a car

The Flash2Pass™ transmitter is mounted under the hood of your car near one of the headlights. One wire from the transmitter will be attached to the headlight high beam positive wire, and the other transmitter wire will be attached to the headlight high beam negative (ground) wire. It doesn't matter which transmitter wire is attached to which headlight wire as the transmitter is non-polarized, which means it figures that out itself. The wires are attached with Posi-Tap™ connectors that do no harm to your vehicle's wiring. No wires are cut, they're just tapped into. This allows the transmitter to be removed when the vehicle is sold or traded in, and the transmitter can be attached under the hood with a plastic zip tie, which means the tie can be cut to remove the transmitter.

Individual Vehicle Installation Guide

BMW Mini Cooper

Tap the Brown (ground) wire and yellow with a blue trace or the yellow with a green trace, depending on whether you're mounting it on the driver's side or passenger side. Zip tie the transmitter in place behind the headlight assembly and check the clearance before you close the hood (bonnet). You can use some Play-doh or a piece of cheese on the transmitter to make sure you have the room.

It appears that models with Xenon headlights use the white wire as the high beam hot, not the yellow wire. The brown ground wire remains the same.

 

Transmitter installation on a motorcycle

Installation of the Flash2Pass™ transmitter on a motorcycle is very simple. Depending on the model of motorcycle, the easiest way to do it is to remove the headlight from the bucket as if you were changing the bulb, and connect the transmitter, as described above in the car installation. Then just tuck the transmitter into the bucket and reinstall the headlight. Again, this may not be applicable to every installation, but it is a general rule of thumb.

Receiver

The Flash2Pass™ receiver is even easier to install. There are two wires that go from the garage door opener motor to a pushbutton on the wall that you use to open the garage door from the inside. After disconnecting the power to the garage door opener, you will remove the pushbutton from the wall, undo the two wires from the back and attach them to the Flash2Pass™ receiver, and attach the receiver to the wall. Turn the power back on, and that's it!

If your current pushbutton console has functions other than to open the door, like light and lock switches, you can still keep those functions by using "jumper" wires from your current console to the Flash2Pass™ receiver. Complete instructions are included with every set and separate receiver.
