Default Auto dim mirror wire

Where does the Pink/Black wire go? I thought maybe the GEM but there are two of them and idk which one to put it on, also the red and black i think it is? i tucked it under my headliner. didn't plan on using it.

Black/pink goes to the black/pink reverse light wire. It is not at the GEM. You should be able to find it in the wire bundle that drops down from the dash to the left side of the transmission tunnel.

There is no red/black for the autolamps mirror but there is one for the overhead console display. That one should be connected to the light blue/red of the radio harness.

You also don't have too hook up the pink/black wire. All it does is turn the auto-dim feature of the mirror off when your are in reverse. I left mine unhooked.

That is true.

I tried it for several months without the reverse wire before I got around to hooking it up. I like it with the reverse wire connected because it makes it easier to see backing up into a bright light. I don't get into that situation very often but when it does happen, it is better with autodim disabled.
