    Auto Dimming Mirror with sunroof.

    I bought a OEM mirror from Subaru that have the dimming.
    when i was installing i noticed that the place the connector from the mirror was going into,,was already used for the sunroof..
    Now i dont know what to do,,
    What the 3 wires from the mirror mean??
    Green ,Blue and black???what are they for??
    if i know each of them i could pick a source from another place to feed the mirror.
    What i have to do???
    Thanks

    Sunroof? Do you have a WRX? I wanted a sunroof in mine, but they said it wasn't available- the last one I had was in my GTP- it leaked from the factory, but I do miss opening the roof on nice days.

    Maybe splice the wires? I'm not a fan of the auto dimming mirror because it's automatically on when you start the car- I'd like it to default to being off when the car starts and then you can turn it on as needed, rather than having to turn it off after you start the car.

    Why would you want to turn it on everytime you needed it? It's automatic so you don't have to mess with it. It dims when the light from behind is brighter than the light from ahead.

    I cant find a way to hook it on,,i need to know what are the wires for,,because the sunroof is standing where the Mirror should go.

    I dont know how to hook it on,,i dont care to turn it on manually..
    The thing i want is for it to work properly.
    In the manual says that you have to connect the mirror wires in a place in the centre console roof,,but i went to see and the place is already took by the Sunroof,,the sunroof is not the same wiring cause it have 4 wires and the mirror have 3..
    Understood??

    Yep, I got it two messages ago. I was originally replying to jedimaster.

    btw, got any pics of the sunroof. I wish the sunroof was available here.

    Classic Cadillac/Subaru of atlanta is where I ordered my wrx from and they offer sunroofs and leather interiors. I got the leather but for the sunroof they have to "modify" the rollbar things and it costs $1249 extra so I didn't get it. tey just have an aftermarket co do it. it looks factory though. their is websiteSubaru of atlanta if you want to e-mail them or you could probably just find a local shop to do it for you
