can you tell if the mirror is plugged into a connector inside the headliner or the dash

also do you have a diagram of the sub wiring as its plugged into the sub and a breakdown of that




'07 Compass -> I apologize to the next owner.

Yes it is by the C1 Connector. Here is the wiring diagram for it too.

thanks a lot gramps!

so you say that i can buy the inverter parts and it will work as a 110 ouput?

and about the dimming mirror, the cables are already there? so i can just buy the mirror? what about the cables for the u-connect.

Thanks, ariel

You can buy any inverter, perhaps even an aftermarket one that puts out your local voltage, the factory 110V plug and then run an adapter. Of course you would need to find one small enough to fit in a mounting area of your choice or get the complete factory N. American set up. What I don't know is how much of the factory wiring harness is shipped with the exports. It may be more cost affective to put your own system together. It depends on how much of it is part of the main harness.

The UConnect requires the Drivers Convenience Group which includes the Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror and therefor the wiring harness for both. Since you do not have the DCG I believe you will also need to get the harness also.

CAUTION: Do not attempt to remove interior trim panels or moldings without first removing the necessary adjacent trim panels or moldings. To avoid damaging the trim panels, ensure that all the fasteners are removed or disengaged before attempting to remove interior trim panels or moldings. Trim panels are somewhat flexible but can be damaged if handled improperly.

DISCONNECT negative (Ground/Earth) battery cable.

These are the most common tools used on the paneling (fig1); the wiring diagram (fig 2) and Cluster harness layout (fig 3/4). For Cluster removal see post #23.

3. Disconnect the electrical connector (3) and release the wire harness support clips (1) from A pillar (2) (fig 2).

4. Remove the two screws that secure the sun visor to the roof panel and remove the sun visor from the headliner(not shown).

5. If equipped, disconnect the illuminated vanity mirror wire harness connector (not shown).

6. Remove the screw that secures the sun visor support to the roof panel and remove the support from the headliner (not Shown).

7. Disconnect the rear view mirror (3) electrical connectors (1 and 2) (fig 3 upper).

I’ve included the following for reference:

Cluster Bezel REMOVAL. I'm not sure how much of a harness is already installed, these steps may not be necessary.

1. Remove the top cover (1).
A. Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, release the clips (2) and separate the A-pillar trim from the A-pillar (fig 1 upper).
B. Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, release the retainer clips (3) and remove the top cover (figure 1 lower).

2. Remove the steering column opening cover.
A. Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, separate the steering column opening cover and remove (fig 2).

3. Remove the two lower bezel screws (2) at the steering column opening (fig 3 upper).

4. Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, separate and remove the end cap (1) (fig 3 lower).

5. Remove the four screws (2) behind the end cap and rotate the front of the bezel (1) up (fig 4).

6. Separate the three rear tabs (2) and remove the bezel (1) (fig 5).

MIRROR

1. Position and slide the rear view mirror (2) downward over the support bracket/button (1) on the inside of the windshield glass (fig 1).

2. Install and tighten the set screw (3) that secures the rear view mirror to the support bracket/button. Tighten the screw to 2 N•m (17 in. lbs.) (fig 1).

3. If the vehicle is so equipped, route the electrochromic (automatic dimming) mirror takeout and connector (1) and/or the telematic (hands-free phone) mirror takeout and connector (2) of the headliner wire harness to the left of the mirror support bracket and reconnect it to the connector receptacle on the back (windshield side) of the mirror housing (3) (figs 2 & 3).

4. If the vehicle is equipped with either the electrochromic or the telematic mirror option, reconnect the battery negative cable.

gramps, reallly tahnks for all the picutres.

As you explain, i think it will be best to begin removing the cluster, so i can check if the plugs or cables are already there?

i think it's the cluster, i mean the part that is shown on the last pic of post #24 (left part, module-electronic)

do you think this is better?

Thanks,

ariel

Yes Ariel, but it's post 22, figs 1 & 2. See what, if any, wiring harness is in the A pillar.

I want to add too, that looking at the diagram in post 21, fig 2, that maybe the only reason that the mirror gets an electrical connection at all is that the auto dimming feature is by-passed when you're in reverse to give you a "brighter" view if using the mirror for backing up. Since I don't back up using the inside rear view mirror, I wouldn't want to go to this much trouble to connect the mirror electrically, just personal opinion.
