Wanted to know has anyone installed OEM/factory Auto Dimming Mirror w/compass Kia Part No.: U86201M000 to replace their plain OEM/factory rearview mirror on their 2010 thru 2013 Kia Forte Koup/sedan?

If yes, where do the wires from the mirror get attached to what wires from the interior fuse box panel.

The OEM/factory Auto Dimming Mirror w/compass Kia Part No.: U86201M000 came from a 2010 Kia Forte Koup SX 2.4L Automatic when I drove to Houston for parts.

Mike Shaw Kia dealership parts person couldn't verify what exactly comes with the same OEM/factory rearview mirror comes with when purchased new when searched & looked on the computer.

There's no part number for the rest of the wire to complete installation.

e wire harness I need to finish instillation. I showed them that the same auto dimming rearview mirror is a Kia/Hyundai OEM/factory standard part & number that can be installed & connected tapping into the 3 wires from the interior fuse box panel.

Also asked if I bought through Mike Shaw Kia would the items/accessories be included like in the pics?. Was told the system doesn't tell them exactly what does come with purchases.

Got the wires/mirror powered up by dumb luck. The 1st with my trusty radio shack muti voltage 1.5v to 12v wall adapter turned on the mirror. Labeled the positive & negative wires. I don't know if the 3rd wire is ground?

1. Brown is ?
2.Tan is Negative
3. Black is Positive

The auto darkening works. The front sensor detected the kitchen lights. Mirror turned dark.

Last night got lucky I didn't destroy or fry the circuit board.

Now, I need help in installing the wires to the vehicles wiring. Using the info above. I'd like to use the wire harness/plug located at the mirror location, fuse box as the 2nd location as a back up.

Yes, I will definitely disconnect the battery. Learned the last time.

Before anything, I had opened up the mirror to see if I can find on the circuit board what wires do what. Couldn't find the info.
