Your choice is limited. You can buy a replacement driver's visor with Homelink instead of Car2U for your car from Ford. The units will switch out because they use the same wires. Ford told me a bit over 300.00 for the visor and about 125.00 to install. Quite expensive for something that should work without this mess. They would not pay any part of it. I just decided to use my gate fob and not make the change.

have you tried a used part outlet (junkyard) for a homelink equipped sunshade? cars get totalled everyday and you might get lucky and find one that matches and operates for you at a reasonable price.

Thanks for confirming the good idea. I am looking around to find the color visor etc. I think this Car2U versus Homelink will be a big problem for Ford. Why change to something that doesn't work very good to something that has worked for years. Ford maybe is the only supplier to use Car2U. Most gate service people have never heard of them but are usually familar with Homelink.

Had a similar issue on my private gate with a 2011 Expedition. Handheld remote had 12 dip switches, tried for hours to get Car2U to work, no joy. Finally opened gate controller box and discovered it only had 10 dip switches. Reprogrammed the Car2U with only 10 numbers and it worked.
Just a word to the wise, check both places! Homelink was much easier IMHO.
