Okay, Wasn't entirely sure where to post this -- if you want to move it that's fine.

I am going to try and wire up my auto-dimming mirror in my truck. I bought it off here, it came from a Bonneville. I figured I'd just wire it into the dome lights in the overhead console, but my question is, does anyone know what wire is what in the plug on the mirror?
There are three wires, on the plug they are labeled ABC... I can try and get a picture of the plug if anyone wants.

The overhead lights just have a power and ground, but the mirror has three, and i don't know what wire is for what. Its just an auto-dimming mirror, no compass or temp or lights...

Most likely 92-99... I bought it a couple years ago off here to use in my Bonneville, but never got around to installing it...
Unfortunately this is the best pic i have of it right now, i couldn't find the digital camera so i had to use my phone, if that doesn't work i can get one when it's light out tomorrow...

Yup thats a 92-99 for sure.

I'm looking at my Techline ESI, and that is the only section blank for pinouts... I am no help, sorry.

I'm going to take a stab in the dark here. I want to think there is a power wire, a ground wire, and a trigger wire. I don't know for sure but maybe the trigger wire is connected to the reverse light switch somehow as the mirror automatically turns off the dimming when the car is in reverse. What do you guys think?

I'm not sure if I can post this link but I found this today doing a search on gentex mirrors ( that's what came in my 92, GNTX-114), looks like it should help with the pinouts you need.

Yes, i believe it goes Positive, Ground, Backup light sense and those should be the only wires you need. If you have a picture of the back and plug, that should confirm it.
