I got a rear view mirror from a 2001 Chevy Silverado at the junkyard today. I would assume it has auto dim, compass, and thermometer. It does have the onstar button and a red cross. Does anyone know the wiring for it? I am wanting to install it in my girlfriend's car. The wiring for the mirror is: green with white stripe, black with yellow stripe, green, black with white stripe, black, pink, yellow with black stripe, another green with white stripe, green with black stripe.
I think I got the temp sensor. It has two wires coming out of it. It was behind the grill next to the auto trans cooler. The wires are: Black with white stripe, Green with black stripe.
Hopefully someone knows the wiring for this thing. Thanks guys.
For some reason on this forum I have to have 5 posts before I can post the pictures on here so here I go.
Here is a picture of the mirror:
Here is what I believe the temp sensor is:
No one has any idea? I did some searching but am uncertain.
I think someone had a thread about this somewhere, which stated what wires you needed to wire this up
Maybe I am blind but I didn't see an exact answer anywhere. Have a link?
^ That just took me to a place to buy them. I already have one.
Thank you sir. Much appreciated. Question, what is pin 4 and 5 for? It says to outside auto dim. Is that like for the side mirror or something? If so, then I won't have to worry about those.
Looks like I have 9 wires. I guess two of them would be for the OnStar and the Red button.
I never done this just read while looking it up for you, but some of the wires are not going to be used for your application. I think all you need is a ground and a power for the dimming feature and another for power for the lights.
This is what one of the threads says
you only need to hook up 4 wires on the mirror, power and ground and the other 2 wires run to the temp sensor where ever you mount it. best to put it infront of the grill.
PIN 1 PINK // POWER +12 volts
PIN 2 BK // CHASSIS, GND
PIN 6 DR GRN/WT // TEMP PROBE
PIN 7 BK/WT // TEMP PROBE_*
^Thats the game plan. I'm gonna try and tackle this over my Christmas break. Its gonna be going in my G/F's Taurus since she wants compass and temp. Gonna be kinda weird with OnStar button but oh well.
