I ordered a Homelink mirror for my 1998 Firebird. I've hooked these up before and they require 1 hot, 1 switched and 1 ground.

Would the wire coming into my existing mirror with lamps supply that? Any idea what color wire is what?

If not, where have you tapped in?


Thanks!

If by "switched" you mean a circuit that is hot in run only, you won't find it in the existing lamp wiring. There should be a black wire (ground), orange wire (always hot), and a white wire that provides a ground when certain conditions are met, typically when a door is open.

Guess I could just go hot hot and have it on all the time, those mirrors cant drain that much power.
