Hello Mike, I would say, If the wires are for the heated mirror, the old mirror has one wire for 12 volts and the other was a ground. The new one just uses the one wire for 12 volts and the mirror is grounded to the door by the mounting screws.

Wiring pigtail input speed sensor on my 2000 sonata. The new plug came with three white wires but the wires from car are different colors. color wiring diagram ?


the connector is the same on both the old harness and the new pigtail. As long as you orientate the connectors the same way you just match up the wires. let me try to explain it this way. If you hold the old connector so the part that holds the connector to the sensor is facing up. Hold the new connector exactly the same way. cut the left wire on both and connect the new connector wire to the old wiring harness. Then cut the center wire and connect them. then cut the right wire and connect. No wiring diagram needed.

One thing I will add is to stagger the new connections. Meaning do nut cut them at the place. Cut one wire then cut the next about an inch or so further and then cut the next about an inch or so further than that. This will prevent the new connections from potentially shorting to each other and will keep the harness from becoming really bulky with all the but connectors in the same location.

I found a mirror in the juck yard I monted it on the car and the wiring connection is different. The old one was a two donnector and the new one I have


I would plug in the one connector if it fits and see if the mirror works. The second connector that you have may be for a heater or if there is a turning arrow in the old mirror. You do 't have to install it completely. Just plug it in and ground it.

Will existing wiring work heated power mirror if replaced from non heated power mirrors 2013 chevy equinox ls


you would have to compare the connectors to see if the are the same.
Your new one will be missing some wires for the heater.
If completely different then get the one you need.
Take mirror with for new connector so you get the right one.

Replace drivers door due to crash. old door had 3


You have to examine and compare the two doors. I am just guessing but I would bet that it is the power mirror that your new door is lacking.

Just follow the wiring into each door.

1. Power locks wires should run to a region near the latch mechanism.
2. Power Windows wires should run to somewhere in the middle of the door.
3. Power mirror should run almost straight up towards the mirror assembly.

If it is the power mirror assembly you should be able to transplant your old one provided that it is not damaged.

If it is power windows, adapting power windows will be much harder as the new door may or may not have the provisions for mounting the regulator, etc.

If it is power locks you may need to transplant the latch and actuator assembly along with its wiring.

I just bought a new driver side mirror (just the glass) for my Volvo S40 1998. The mirror itself has two connectors and there are two wires that should be connected to the glass but I can't find any info...


I "solved" this by simply plugging the two wires to the two connectors, since the two connectors are only for the mirror heating I have simply assumed that it makes no difference which wire goes to which connector as the connectors aren't marked in any way.

When connecting a heating element it usually doesn't matter how it's connected so I simply decided to take my chances and so far there's no problem.

It sounds like you bought the wrong year mirrors. Yes you could cut the connector off you old mirror but you would have to know the wiring for the mirror not the truck.
