i've got the same mirror as the OP, mine came out of a late model Tahoe. the problem i'm having is that it will only show Celsius. I can get to the flashing c and f but no matter what i choose it goes back Celsius. Any ideas?

does anyone one have a picture of the wiring that can be disconnected? OP pictures are gone. Do we just keep the two outer wires on both sides??

you do push the temp button 2 times on the 2nt time hold it for about 3 or 4 sec the c or the f will flash push it 1 time and you should be good to go

Give it a try

I figure if I'm gonna do this then why not get all the features I want in it, but the closest I can find is the 50-GENK3350S...it has a 3.3" RCD, temp, compass, and Homelink. Only issue though is it has no map lights. Does anyone know of another manufacturer which has ALL of these features and what vehicle it was used in so I can try to source one?


Thanks,

I bought mine on eBay, and I think that it came out of a Chrysler Sebring convertible or something similar. It was definitely a Chrysler product. I will say the map light is not that bright, and I do not use it very often. If I did this mod again, I would not be concerned about the map light.

have you considered replacing the halogen lights with led's because that was my thought.

Just wanted to add some information out there for this topic...

1st: This is a VERY simple and cheap mod to do and doesnt take you very long to install. I did it in my ZJ (temp in overhead is being removed) and my brother LJ. Took me MAYBE 30 min to put it in my ZJ and about an hour on the LJ. (ZJ has the power and such at the mirror).

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/r...-swap-3605721/

2nd: I have also been on the look out for a mirror that has the double display AND the map lights. I have looked ALL over the junkyards in Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Chrysler vehicles etc etc on and on... And with no luck, I have NOT found one with the double display and map lights. It always one and not the other. OR you get the ones that have onstar and compass OR onstar and lights but not both.

3rd: The double display I've found have come off the 90 era Chevy's (Suburban, Tahoe) Escalade's. It would appear that MANY 90's to 00 cars used the SAME powered mirrors as one another. I have noticed in some of the Chrysler's the plug is a stacked 2x2/3x3, unlike the flat plug that is used in this mod.


/ZJ guy back to lurking in the TJ forms...

96 ZJ 5.2; IRO 4.5, Adj. Upper/Lower CA, Bilstein 5100s, 265/75/16 Goodyear, IRO OTK, 5.9 efan, 242.

I just put a Gentex 341 (out of a Sebring) in mine. Compass, temperature, map/door lights, and homelink. This is a great mod, I'm not sure why I waited 10 years.

thank you so much, are those the stock in all models? There are a few in a pick and pull near by and I'd drive down there this weekend if they are the standard in all models.

Anyone else have some other vehicle recommendations to find these in just in case I strike out with the Sebring's.
