New GT Owner with Questions

Hi, just picked up my new daily driver!! It's a 2007 Bentley GT Mulliner Edition. I love it!!

Here's some pics!!!! I chose Black/Black/Black!!!





(I put the crappy floormats in cause of the salty/snow mess we have here)


I do have a couple questions that I figured I could ask here without driving back to the dealer.

1) How do you set the homeline garage door opener? I read the manual and I have a rolling code that I've used many times on many other cars without a problem. Normally it's just hit the learn button on the garage door opener and then hold down the desired button until it learns it. I also tried pressing the button in twice like it said in the manual and still nothing. What am I doing wrong?


2) The cigarette lighters dont work (front or back). I don't smoke, but I want to use them for my V1 and my power inverter for my laptop. I figured it must be a blown fuse? and if so where do I find a diagram for the fusebox?

Absolutely stunning car. Congrats.

Get it out of the snow!!!

Your owner's manual should outline the fuses.

Don't know. Have not bought mine yet! Purchase is imminent though.

I believe but not sure that there is within the trunk a easily removeable panel behind which the fuses should lie

Snow? Are you kidding me? This is California.

I have never even driven my Ferrari in the rain!

Thanks for the help. Still havent figured out the rolling code homelink

Took the car into Bentley to fix the fuse. It's actually not in the fuse panel in the trunk, but under the steering wheel.

mono2100 will become famous soon enough
Shawn I had the same issue with the rolling code.

1st program one of the many codes into your home link then you need to look for a "learn" button on your garage opener hold that while pressing the programed key on the homelink... this will ensure that the programmed code will always work.

the cig lighter is a fuse...

navtv is a nice piece. we can add a dvd disk changer to your glovebox and a backup camera that will all display on your factory headunit.

it would be pointless in a gt but we can also add headrest monitors for the backseat and all screens would play a dvd.
