    Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help.

    I removed an auto dimming mirror from a 98 e36 and am going to fit it to my 94 e36. It has a 10 pin plug and 9 wires, as I understand it, most of this wiring is for the 'homelink' system that was never fitted to a UK car, can anyone give me the functions of each wire? I can't find a diagram anywere.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Wiring in the mirror on Euro cars is for the Radio Remote Control receiver (CL off the key, not the alarm fob - see my guide)

    There is no actual diagram for all the connections to the mirror but I can tell you what should be on Connector X10102 (Electrochromatic Mirror)

    Pin 1 - BL/GE from Gearbox Reversing Switch to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 2 - RT/GN from Fuse 7 to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 3 - VI/WS from Fuse 43 to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 4 - WS/VI from Diagnostic Link (Transmit) to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 5 - WT/RE/GE from ZKE unit Pin 17 to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 6 - BL/RE/GE from ZKE unit Pin 4 to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 7 - BR/RT/GE from ZKE unit Pin 1 to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 8 - WS/GE from Diagnostic Link (Receive) to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)
    Pin 9 - Not Used
    Pin 10 - BR/OR from Earth to Radio Remote Control Unit (A194Y)

    Just to confirm, there is no red LED under the mirror (which I assumed would be something to do with the alarm) just a sensor in a front and back.

    Let's not get confused. Radio Remote Control only operates the Central Locking system (and by proxy the immobiliser). There is no alarm or siren so there is no LED to flash. The E36s with the red LED under the mirror are for North American spec cars only. Interestingly there is a retrofit of the E46 compass mirror....

    Bit of a bump here but Billy, where do you find your info?
    Also, it's taken until now for me to figure out that the colours were in German lol
