2006 Ranger mirrors on 2000 Power Connector?

hey guys i am about to install some 06+ power mirrors on my 2000 ranger. I would like to use the connector that comes on the 06 mirrors. Could i get the male connector off of the 06 rangers and splice it into my 2000 power mirror harness? Id like to keep it nice and clean and plug and play. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.

You can't use the connector for a plug and play application. You will have to splice them, wire by wire process of elimination to make sure they move properly. You can use butt connectors or quick disconnects.

x2 ^

Like he said its just a matter of splicing in or cutting and soldering. Just take your time and you will be fine. There aren't to many wires to begin with.

Im sure theres people on here that could give you or post the schematics that have the colors of the wiring and what is what.

If you got both male/female ends you could probably splice it. But as far as plugging and playing the 2000 male or female connector to a 2006 male/female I am sure they are different. The 06 has a small 1"x1" funky square shaped connector. Black in colour. Idk the wire colours as they were sealed in wire insulation. You would have to do the process of elimination like mentioned at this point. I think that's what everyone means by not being plug and play.

If you attempt it, document it so you can be helpful to others who would like to do it.
