Default installing an aftermarket auto dimming rear view mirror

Does anyone know how to install an aftermarket auto dimming rear view mirror? How do you connect it properly without draining battery power?

Isn't there a write up on this site somewhere?

And the key way to connect it so it doesn't drain the battery is to connect the main power wire to a keyed circuit.

I know I will have one of these up for sale along with a whole EATC system here in a bit. And I will include instructions.

You can just run the power wires from you dome light. Look up explorer autodim mirror installs. Its three wires and super easy to install.

I just did it and love it.
