As you can see with the picture though, the wire colours are very different.Bro. You made a post about this already. I told you that the wiring is exactly the same aside from a ground wire. That’s the wiring diagram you provided.
I understand that it could be found here IS300 Wiring Diagrams - 2JZGARAGE But I'm confused as I can't figure out the colour coding. I'm trying to hook up a 2002+ mirror to a 2001 is300. Could anyone help, please?www.my.is
I'm sorry, but what do you mean colours won't matter? How am I meant to know what each wire does in correspondence?It would be best to just get a mirror that matches the year of your car. The 2002-2005 mirror wiring should be good if you have any year in that range. If you have a 2001, it would be best to find that year mirror.
If you can’t, you will want to look at the diagram. One of them matches your car. The wiring diagram shows what each wire does. Colors won’t matter when you can see what each wire does in the wiring diagram.
git gud. Haha couldn’t resist.How am I meant to know what each wire does in correspondence?
Ok cool. I've got a voltage meter I can use, but not great at using it. What do I select to figure out the function of the mirror?git gud. Haha couldn’t resist.
No, seriously, you’ve been given sound advice. I can parrot what has been said: the colors don’t matter, it’s the function of each wire thats important.
Do you know how to use a VOM / ohmmeter? If not you can still take the mirror housing apart and figure out what each wire’s function is. The motor moves up-down, left-right (ab,ab, start, select😂 anyone that played Nintendo in the 80s?). So 4 wires are for the motor : 2 tilt it up/ down and 2 angle it left/right (the control switch reverses polarity to make this happen). Then I believe there is the defroster control pwr and gnd; and the Autodim pwr and gnd ( I know this because I put powerfolding housings on mine with USDM mirrors retrofitted - it’s been awhile so double check me). You should be able to figure it out with this info. It’s pretty straightforward but wiring can be intimidating if you’ve never done it. Just have to dive in and unravel it or pay someone to do it.
Resistance. You should have two values that are pretty similar. These will be the motor. The defroster will be read the same. I don’t know what the autodim voodoo would be. It may be easier to pry the glazing out and just trace the wires (visually or with the meter set to continuity) inside the housing.What do I select to figure out the function of the mirror?
