fancy rear view mirror
I got a rear view from a 2004 Rubicon that has map lights and compass. I have the wire that goes into the mirror but nothing else. Does anyone know what wire is what or can provide any insight on how I can get this thing working?

Anyone have a clue even how I would begin figuring this out.

show some pics,

If the wire is a simple positive and ground you can run it down along the windshield rubber into the dash and connect it to the cigarette lighter or something of that nature. You can test out how it works before running it by taking an old cigarette power source and just wiring it up and plugging it in.

Sometimes mirrors that display information such as direction and temp connect into a small in dash unit.

If its the one with the temp gauge also,you pop of the inside vent cover at your windshield,you will see a whith plug there that is for the mirror.if you decide that is not the mirror for you I have been looking for one....

You also need to add the temp sensor in the grille. Go to use google or go over there. I know ther are several threads on how to add the mirrior.
