    I know this is a stretch, but would anyone have the pinout for the overhead display connector.
    Adding a Gentex mirror, and want the pins for the temp sensor.
    I don't have the display, but the connector is there, and the sensor is on the front rad support.

    I heard the 09s us a CAN-BUS system, so you probably won't be able to use the temp sensor with the gentex mirror like you would be able to do with the older trucks (this is why the 05~09 consoles don't work with 09)

    Aw for (*&((_&&&&^^!!! They couldn't leave well enough alone.... :(

    I even ran a wire from each pin in the sensor socket into the cab to use for a continuity test on the remaining 3 pins in the headliner. power was easy to figure.
    One of the wires was grey/purple in the console connector, and in the sensor connector - no continuity though. the other connector in the sensor is ground.
    So - that makes sense - uses CAN buss communication.

    Crap in a basket.

    OH well - the mirror is in, and compass working. Scan guage fits perfectly above this mirror and use adhesive velcro more for in-case than necessary. Headliner itself keeps it sandwiched there.
