    The mirror has auto-dimming, HomeLink and a bright white LED map light. You can also toggle between LED mood lighting in amber, blue and white. The HomeLink feature has three buttons that can control three separate remote items.

    The mirror comes with the mirror with a white map light and mood lights, wire harness, installation and operating instructions.

    Looking for $150

    I have the 2007 Gentex Auto Dimming Homelink rearview mirror. Do you know if the wiring is the same, I just have to switch out the mirrors? Wondering if my current wiring will just plug into your mirror.

    This only requires 3 wires. So if your current mirror has more than 3 wires you will have to splice them in. (Constant, switched and ground)

    Here are a couple of pics of the connector:

    Always on lighter output, Any Time On Fog lights, rear 12v outlet, 4 additional D-Rings, Plasti-Dipped Side Steps, Satoshi Color Matched Grill, Dash light swap, Dome light and map light, Under hood light, Back up light/Bed Light, Diff Breather relocation, Cubby Combo Lock, Ammo Cans Mounted in bed
    So I found your post which I really appreciate, and I noticed that your mirrors looks similar to one that I have. The problem is that I don't have the pigtail that is suppose to go with it. I don't know what model number it is but I have pictures that I will upload and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Edit:
    I forgot to mention that the colors of the plug that is on the mirror are Green, Brown, Yellow, Black, Grey, and White.

    I wished I had not blown all of my cash on a camper shell but that is a more immediate need than a dimming mirror. If it is still here is say January I'll buy it but till then I can't.
