Default Need help with Auto mirror

Just picked up an Auto dim mirror from a 99 SSEi at the wrecker. Going to install it in my 95 SLE/SC. This mirror is the newer style and is WAY different in connector to Greenzilla'*.

Anyone know what year these started, and can anyone look up which pins are power and ground? Or check your car?

My 95 has the mirror. I believe it started in 95 I think.

No wiring diagrams in the chiltons either.

Bill all you need is power and ground.....I assume that you have the harness from the donor car??? I just used the Sunroof connector in the A pillar. You may not be able to use it since you have a Sunroof, but i believe that the mirror and the sunroof are on the same fuse

its really simple once you have the wire colors.

I do not have the harness from the donor. It was cut out with the headliner before I got to it. I have the mirror, and it has at least 5 pins on it I think. I have terminals that will fit it, I just need to know which ones to use.

Also need to know for sure which fuse in a 95 normally feeds this. I need to know if it'* always on to remember the mode, or if it'* ACC switched power.

if it has the amber color one button it started in 94. If it has the auto/off and a green light that started in 98.

It'* only on when the headlights are on.

How many connectors are on the back? My 92 has 2 seperate connectors, one has a black cover on it. No idea what it'* for.
