Default Re: Auto dim mirror install from an explorer

What year of explorer should I look for? I glanced through the thread but could not find what year.

Thanks

About to do the Auto Dim and OHC at the same time. Any differences that you can note with respect to doing this mod on a 2009?

You may have different color wiring that you need to identify to make the proper connections

Just a very dumb Q.. this picture shows a SPDT relay with 5 wires on it, yet OP stated that SPST with 4 wires is to be used. Does it matter which relay or do they work the same?

Either can be used. The only difference for the Bosch type shown is the normally closed 87A pin and it is not needed for this circuit.
