Icon2 Help with overhead console wiring and mirror

I have found all the how tos and think I got the hardest part done via mounting the bracket and cuttng the

I got a overhead console with auto dimming mirror with factory explorer harness.

Here's what mine looks like taken from the one site:

Main connector 13 pin:


Console connector and mirror plug:

It's got the plug fo the oem harness on an explorer, lighted visor mirrors, mirror, and overhead connector for console.

I have found this: for OEM wiring which seems fine

Basically there are 8 wires we will use, in 5 "groups" according to where they go. When two colors are given for a wire the first color is the wire color, and the second color denotes a colored stripe on the wire.

1. Black (BK) - ground

2A. Yellow/Gray (YE/GY) - console electronics power
2B. Blue/Red (BL/RD) - console display dimmer input

3A. Green/Orange(GN/OR) - Map light power
3B. Black/Blue(BK/BL) - Dome light power

4A. Lt. Blue/White (BL/WH) - Temp sensor
4B. Lt. Blue/Yellow (BL/YE) - Temp sensor

5. Gray/Black (GY/BK) - speed sensor (not used by some, but necessary)

The console part I think I am ok... but how am I going to make the auto dimming mirror work since it's all tied togther,.

I have 13 wires from the main connector that I am guessing would go directly in the explorer harness.

Thanks for the advance help!
