    I knew about the screw that holds the mirror onto the glass; and that is tight. However, I need to find a way to tighten just the mirror itself.

There should be a set screw which is usually a small recessed hex head. a set of small allen wrenches will do the trick. It may also be a torx style screw. Just look carefully and you can fix this easily.

Circuit/System Description
When the transmission is placed into REVERSE, a 12 volt signal is sent to the rearview camera image display module indicating that camera operation is requested. The rearview camera image display module then supplies ignition voltage and ground to the rear vision camera. The rear vision camera sends video information through the rearview camera image display module to the inside rearview mirror through a video signal + and a video signal - circuit. A grounded shielding also wraps the video signal circuits to reduce electronic interference which may degrade the video signal and cause a distorted or otherwise degraded image.

Do you know how to do electrical testing ?

Rear Vision Camera System Does Not Display
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the rear view camera image display module.
Test for less than 1.0 ohm between the ground circuit terminal 3 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.
Ignition ON, verify that a test lamp illuminates between the ignition circuit terminal 2 and ground.
? If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the ignition circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.
Ignition ON, park brake applied, vehicle in REVERSE, verify that a test lamp illuminates between the control circuit terminal 1 and ground.
? If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the control circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
Ignition OFF, connect the harness connector at the rear view camera image display module. Disconnect the harness connector at the rearview camera.
Ignition OFF, test for less than 1.0 ohm between the ground circuit terminal B and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the rear view camera image display module.
Ignition ON, park brake applied, vehicle in REVERSE, test for 5.8-6.2 volts between the 6-volt reference circuit terminal A and ground.
? If less than the specified range, test the 6-volt reference circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the rear view camera image display module.
? If greater than the specified range, test the 6-volt reference circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the rear view camera image display module.
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the rear view camera image display module.
Test for less then 1 ohm between the shield ground circuit terminal 10 at the rear vision camera display module harness connector and terminal D at the rear vision camera harness connector.
? If greater than the specified range, test the shield ground circuit for an open/high resistance.
Ignition ON, test for less than 1 volt between the signal circuit terminal 9 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage.
Test for infinite resistance between the signal circuit terminal 9 and ground.
? If not the specified value, test the signal circuit for a short to ground.
Test for less then 1 ohm between the signal circuit terminal 9 at the rear vision camera display module harness connector and terminal C at the rear vision camera harness connector.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for an open/high resistance.
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the inside rearview mirror.
Ignition ON, test for less than 1 volt between the following signal circuits at the inside rearview mirror harness connector and ground:
• Video + signal circuit terminal 6
• Video - signal circuit terminal 7
Test for infinite resistance between the following signal circuits at the inside rearview mirror harness connector and ground:
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage.
• Video + signal circuit terminal 6
• Video - signal circuit terminal 7
? If greater than the specified value, test the signal circuit for a short to ground.
Test for less then 1 ohm between the following signal circuits:
• Signal circuit terminal 12 at the rearview camera image module and terminal 6 at the inside rearview mirror.
• Signal circuit terminal 11 at the rearview camera image module and terminal 7 at the inside rearview mirror.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for an open/high resistance.
If all circuits test normal, test or replace the rear vision camera.
Ignition ON, park brake applied, vehicle in REVERSE, verify a clear rear vision image is displayed on the radio.
? If a clear rear vision image is not displayed, test or replace the inside rearview mirror

Replacing the rear view mirror on a Ford Explorer is easy. The only obstacle you might encounter is fear of breaking the glued metal plate off the windshield. Do not sweat it. You can buy glues at the auto parts store to reattach the mirror to the windshield (Difficulty: Moderately Easy).

Instructions:
  1. Tap gently at the base of the mirror where it slides on over the metal plate glued to the windshield and pull upward. Some rear view mirrors have a small Allen screw that tightens the base of the rear view mirror to the metal plate. Disconnect the electrical plugs if your rear view mirror has them.
  2. Pull the rear view mirror clear of the metal plate. Clean around the metal plate glued to the windshield. If the metal plate has come off because of harsh weather or from hammering too hard at it, reattach it with glue designed for this job.
  3. Clean the area where you will be attaching the metal plate on the windshield. Apply the glue evenly on the surface of the metal plate that will go against the window. Be sure to clean and scrape off all the old glue before applying the new glue. Gently push the metal plate against the windshield in the spot you wanted it and hold tight for five minutes.
  4. Wait a day before putting the base of the mirror or replacement rear view mirror onto the metal plate. Do not force the base over the plate. Forcing it will likely dislodge it again. Press firmly until it will not slide along the grooves of the metal plate. Reconnect your electrical plugs and tighten the Allen screw if your new mirror has one. Adjust the mirror according to your safe viewing preference

Hope help with this (remember rated this help). Good luck.

2008 Honda Pilot Rear View Mirror Installation


At most auto parts stores, they carry what is called "Rearview mirror adhesive" - It costs about $4 or $5, and comes is a little "blister" package. It is a special two-part adhesive (utilizing a pre-cleaner and a "gluing" agent) that is REQUIRED for installing these mirrors on glass - Super glue will not work for this,... All you will do with superglue is make a mess... - The adhesive isn't terribly hard to use, but it does require a bit of patience, and I'd recommend following the instructions to a "T" for the best results (Temperature, time, etc..). Hope that helps some...

Custom Rear view mirror


Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**

However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.

The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
