Default How to : installing a auto dim mirror

to install a auto dim mirror you will first need to have the mirror and the harness

here is the connector that comes off of the mirror harness, the Pink and Black stripe is power green goes to the reverse signal in the shifter and the black is your ground


this is the harness the plugs onto the mirror


and the mirror connection


you will probable have to add wire to the connector, i and just using the power and the ground


and then the harness and the connector with the extra wiring


to do this install you will have to drop the headliner a bit


To do this you will need to remove the A pillar trim first

when you remove the A pillar you will find the wiring that leads to the sunroof module that has power when the ket is in run, and RAP


the you will need to remove the sun visor by pulling the clip on the one side


and the screws on the other side


the mirror just pulls down out of the headliner


I used a quick connect fron the wiring to the factory wiring


run the wires up the A pillar and then into the headliner, install the mirror onto the window.

and the finshed product.........




just reverse the process for reinstallation...and they enjoy your autodim mirror
