Default Re: Auto dim mirror install from an explorer

I found a dual relay socket, prewired to fit the RY 116 relays on Amazon gives you plenty of leads and makes it nice and neat mount with double sticky tape or if the relays have mount tabs on them. do a search for dual relay socket

Also, any place to get a new headlight switch wiring harness? I messed up a little bit and pretty much used up all my slack on a couple of the wires so I don't have much room to play with here.
Standard ignition S-822 is the headlight switch plug for your ranger and it comes prewired with proper color coded pigtail leads on it

AFAIK, this is the best and only info out there for 2004~2006.

It should, you just need to identify the headlight wires you need to tap into to make sure they are the correct ones to splice into

would they be the same configuration and what year explorer would be a good donor for the console, seats, ohc and the auto dimming mirror because in alaska its easier to just buy a wrecked truck use it for parts then take it to the salvage yard because they want like 500 for a set of cloth seats nonpowered sorry for the long question i just hate having no storage in my truck its a 94 single cab

Default Re: Auto dim mirror install from an explorer

now i want to replace my stock mirror for the autodim one since its a little bit wider and hey it looks cool. my problem is is that i take my mirror off the front windshield and put the auto dim one on but the bracket part is to big. trying to do my best at explaining since i dont have pics but if im understanding right once i take the stock one off all i should have left is the one metal looking piece on the windshield. my problem is the new expo one does not fit onto the piece. am i doing it wrong or just stupid? and i just want the looks, im not going to wire it in.

the windshield mount is the standard size for all the mirrors. I think your retaining clips on the mirror itself may be bent a little not allowing it to click in. Check them before you do anything, they may have to be bent back in. Sometimes they bend out of shape if they get popped off the windshield the wrong way...(Trust me I know LOL)
