    So i might be trading rear view mirrors with a friend who has a 2006(i think) Hyundai Santa Fe because he has a Homelink Auto Dimming Mirror. Now i just need to know 2 things.
    1) Is there a module somewhere in his car or is it built into the mirror. Here is a pic of the mirror:

    If there is then i guess it would be at the end of the wire going in his headliner which go all the way across the car.

    2) There are 4 wire coming from the mirror which plug up to said ^^wires and there are 4 wires coming out from that plug and they go all the way to god knows where... but my question i guess would be what are these 4 wires for? The colours are white w/ black stripe, green, yellow, and orange. Here is a pic:

    I guess if there is a second module then i will have to scrap this whole thing because i am going to have to make up a 2 custom brackets for both mirrors to fit each others cars and i was just going to cut the plug with about 4 inches of wire from his car if they are just powers and ground but hopefully there isn't which is why i am asking you guys!!

    Thanks!!

    so i dont have to bookmark that stupid car domain...
    Yellow - Ground
    Black/white - Car On
    Orange - Power Constant
    Green - Reverse light, When you reverse it will turn off the mirror so you can see while backing up.
