Shit....I think I got myself confused then,,,, I did my OHC, visors, and auto dim mirror at the same time. Let me think now, Sorry man!

----------

your visors have a small wiring harness right?

This might explain it. Guess one of the screws that holds the visor up needs to work as a ground, makes sense.

*I didn't actually mount them all up I thought i would just connect the wire to see if they worked. I will try this and see what happens.

I followed the same guide. I think The auto dim mirror was what I grounded to the OHC bracket, and I tapped the visors into the OHC wire going to the dome light. Sorry man....I dun gots confused!

FYI: One of these solved my ground issue (replace one of the plastic rings with one of these and the visor is grounded just like it would have been in the Explorer.) I was not crazy about running another wire just to ground the visors, PLUS this was super easy and cheap lol.





Sorry for kinda hijacking the dome discussion but the dome install worked as a very good base for the visor install, Thanks for all the help.

so just to clarify from an earlier post. *

someone that had a 99 ranger that had manual lights was able to do this as a direct swap, so is the power wire still needed to complete this?

STL -

Did I read this correctly, that if we have a 2002 (my year) that all we have to do is remove the dome light, the wires, replace it with the mustang dome light, and thats all we really need to do?

(Obviously disconnect the battery too)

Thanks man
