The extra 2 are probably for the heater in the old mirror. You can do it but it won't be right and the extra wires need to be capped and a wiring diag should be seen to rule out killing something else.

S and I installed a mirror on my towncar that has a different connection . My old mirror had two connectors the new mirror only has one connector


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.

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.

How d I swith passenger side mirror on a power mirror on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited edition


no symptoms posted (broke glass or ???) can we be on same page?
"how do I switch," verb switch , the mirror as switches inside, too.

please say what that word means. switch and the failure.
1: remove and replace with new.
2: move right to left and left to right side.

why would you do that #2
fold away mirrors/ Export only (this is usa forum so..)
these,NASA grade mirrors are very complex... not just glass and plastic. heaters ,motors, memory , etc.

the FSM cover all tests for the mirror, including scan data.

ill quote the FSM now , 8 steps (just 1 fail,not heat, not memory failure or fold failure)
ONE MIRROR INOPERATIVE
(1) If the one inoperative mirror is on the passenger
side, go to Step 2. If the one inoperative mirror is
on the driver side, go to Step 3.
(2) Check if the passenger front door will lock and
unlock using the power lock switch on the driver side
front door. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, go to Step 6.
(3) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable. Remove the trim panel from the front door.
Disconnect the 12-way mirror wire harness connector
from the door wire harness connector.
(4) Using two jumper wires, test the mirror as
shown in the Mirror Test chart (Fig. 2). If the mirror
tests OK, go to Step 5. If the mirror does not test
OK, replace the faulty mirror.
(5) Disconnect the 12-way door wire harness connector
from the door module connector receptacle.
Check all of the circuits of the door wire harness
between the connector for the mirror and the connector
for the door module for opens or shorts. If all of
the circuits are OK, replace the faulty door module.
If any of the circuits are not OK, repair the open or
shorted circuit(s) as required.
(6) Use a DRB scan tool and the proper Diagnostic
Procedures manual to test and repair the faulty Programmable
Communications Interface (PCI) data bus
communication between the two door modules.

(bar stool answer) all cars. mostly
pull door skins
unplug motor conn.
unscrew mirror base from door.
extract mirror,

I have a 1999 DII and have just replaced the auto dim mirror with a new style with compass, how do I remove the old mirror


The mirror can be removed by carfully pulling down towards the dash.
unplug the wiring block and re install the new mirror. In my case the wiring block was a miss match so I cut the wires and used generic connectors to reconnect the power.

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.

Replacing 2003 zx2 driver side power mirror.


Its "doable" but I wouldn't advise you to do it that way. Get a phillips screwdriver to unscrew the elbow pad & any other screws holding the door panel on. Disconnect the pwr window switches & any other switches on the panel. On the lower end of the door panel there are plastic clips holding the panel to the door. POP them out of the door & remove the panel. disconnect the mirror electrical connector & disconnect the mirror body itself. Install the new one & don't forget to connect all of the electrical connectors & reinstall the panel. Good luck

Side View Mirror Wiring


Just try matching from the outside to the outside, middle to middle, etc. or use a continuity tester against each pair until the light up. Solder the wires, do not use wire nuts.
