The Donnelly mirrors use the same 7-pin plug as the Gentex, but the pin-outs are different. Here is the pin-out for the Donnelly mirrors:

Pin 1 - +12 volts
Pin 2 - Courtesy lamp input
Pin 3 - (varies depending on mirror features)
Pin 4 - (varies depending on mirror features)
Pin 5 - Reverse disable (+12 volts in reverse)
Pin 6 - Ground
Pin 7 - Demand lighting input

Rear view mirror for 98 chrysler sebring


Hello Glitterqueen,

I have had the honor of perusing some of the finest
AUTOMOTIVE SWAP MEETS in the nation...
Northern California, Carlisle & several years of Hershey
being the best memories...!!

Before that we amateurs had the option of NEW
DEALER parts... usually abusively expensive
or "junking" (looking through SALVAGE YARDS)...

THE INTERNET... specifically eBay has brought
a whole new world to my finger-tips...
Have a look at the pages below...

Surprising prices on ROCKAUTO ... (in my opinion)
but do know your prices before trying AMAZON,
especially watchful of your shipping methods & COSTS.

I purchased a used Donnelly 0110103 rear view mirror that has a compass and map lights. I'm going to install it in my Pontiac Vibe that has a mirror with map lights. The Donnelly has 4 wires (the Vibe has...


black=neg
black with slim white=door switch
black with wide blue or wide dark green=accesories(switch controlled pos)
black with slim light green=live pos(always connected for map lamps)
If you wire it as such,map lamps would come on both when you open the door and with doors closed when you turn on the switches.

Replace the rear view mirror


Gently tap the base of the mount upwards. I just replaced mine and I thought there was a cover over the winshield mount, turns out it is just pushed on to the wedge that is mounted to the windshield. Good Luck, webree

Donnelly 012017 rear-view mirror on 2000 regal


Have to buy a new mirror or:

I was able to avoid buying a new mirror, but my mirror also became so foggy that it was unusable. This correction will not allow the Auto Dimm feature to work!!!!!!! But at least the mirror will function as a mirror. This took me about an 1 1/2 hours (glue needs to dry).

1) Take the mirror off the windshield
metal lever held mine in place
mirror then slides off
disconnect wires

2) Pull the mirror apart
it's glued together
Don't brake the plastic

3) Seperate front glass from the auto dim element
a clear front glass is sandwiched to the
element with a series (or piano style)
of metal clamps
the element is a reflective surface
the clear glass may brake, this is OK
it will not be reused, Be Careful Not
To Cut Yourself
Don't damage the reflective element, though

4) Clean the surface of the element
Be Careful Here, the element scratches
more easily than the glass surface would
have

5) Disconnect the 2 wire connector connected
to the element circuit
this is just a safety step to prevent the
element from trying to work and possibly
heating up

6) Put everything back together
glue the mirror back together
reconnect the mirror wiring if you
need to (my mirror had the compass
that needs power)
put it back on the windshield

I performed this repair about 6 months ago and have not had any problems. The element is the reflective surface that the mirror already used, so it reflects as it should. The auto dim feature, as stated before, does not work, but I didn't have to pay a couple hundred bucks for a new mirror or a used one that would eventually do the same thing. Their is a gap from the plastic edge of the mirror to the element the width of the clear glass that was removed. It is not noticeable to anyone but you.
