Default Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror

Was at the salvage yard Sat, grabbed an auto dimming mirror from a Buick, Does anyone know if there is a wiring harness for it under the headliner on a 99 SLE? Just thought I would ask before I pulled it down. Was this type of mirror an option for Bonnies?

You only need two wires. Switched accessory power and ground. Several of us have converted. I love the mirror in my SSEi, so I converted my SLE. It'* quite easy. I don't recall the actual pinout on the connector, but it should be posted somewhere here.

I will check when I get home as far as wire colors.....I am certain it doesn't have a compass....I had the same mirror in my '90 Olds Regency. If I'd a been thinkin, I could have dropped the headliner in the Bonnie that was folded in half at the yard!!! I was actually there getting a few items for the 84 Olds Eighty Eight (49K) that was left to me when my Dad passed away. I needed a brown glove box door for it because of a cut in the vinyl.....looked for about five minutes, found the EXACT replica of my Dad'* car...same Everything!!! and Viola!!! Glove Box door intact and now in my garage!
Thanks for the replies!

Look and see if it has a Pink wire with a black stripe( Could Possibly be Brown )... The other wires should be light Green, Pink, Grey and Black

I got Mine from a Park Avenue and it has a Compass in the upper right hand corner... I love it, and it works awsome at nite

Thanks guys! The images on the pin out diagram are inactive, but the wires on the mirror are green, red and black on the three prong, and brown and red on the two prong. So I will disregard the two prong (outside mirror), and use the two wires closest to the post....closest is 12v and center is ground....if I read it correctly. I will just unplug the two prong and discard it. I will let ya know how it works.
