Default My new items to install (OHC and Auto dim Mirror)

Does anyone know of or have a wiring diagram for both the mirror and the OHC?

There are how to's on both of those items. I highly recommend you get a newer auto dim mirror, the how to refers to them for wiring and they are a bit better looking. If you need a hand wiring them up or indentifying wires shoot me a pm, I will try to help ya

...that mirror is fine, as well. I built a custom wiring harness for my OHC and (that same) auto-dim mirror... I think I ended up running a total of 8 or 9 wires down the A-pillar. I terminated that harness with a 9-pin Molex connector behind the interior fuse panel that, in turn, routed the appropriate wires (+12V accessory, VSS, sensor wires, etc) where they needed to go...

i dont know if i will be wiring them up yet.. but thanks clinton, your how to really does help, i might look for another auto dimmer, but if this one can be wired up then i wont be bothered. and the only reason i ask for a wiring diagram, is because i like having that as a reference or a check list. but whatever if there is none i will make my own, and post it up here.

----------

p.s i guarantee this setup will sit in my closet for a couple of weeks till i am motivated to rip apart my trucks interior. i just did my led lighting a week back lol

that's nothing... while I did install my OHC and auto-dim mirror fairly soon after I bought them, I still have all of the parts for the entire EATC mod sitting in a box in my computer room -- it's been waiting there for me for about 3.5 years, now.

The Auto dim mirror if wired correctly with a supplied relay, will turn on your headlights automatically when it turns dark out. it also dims to headlights behind you so you dont get a glare in your eye, The OHC will display the outside temperature, and a compass
