st185 euro mirrors wiring to US car

Postby Sonny » Thu Oct 21, 2004 9:53 pm

I just got a pair of mirrors from a 1991 ST185 (Carlos Sainz edition, I believe) that had been running in Switzerland. Trying to mount them on my 1990 US ST185 presented me with this problem:

The euro mirrors have a mini harness connector with 5 wires. My US car has a mini harness with 3 wires. The colors on the euro mirror wires are:
yellow, brown, red, black, yellow

The colors on the US mirrors/car harness are yellow, pink, and black, I believe (I had to put the cover back on because it was getting dark, and I only checked on the driver side).

Are the additional wires for heating or what?

My intention is to make sure I can adjust them from inside the car. I am willing to give up the (assumed) heating option, which my car is obviously not wired for.

PS. The mirrors look awesome. Both are convex. None of them carry the warning "Objects in mirror are closer..."

what do you mean by convex, do they look normal or like a p/s mirror on a u.s car?also are those mirrors the same as the jdm ones.and what would happen if you had to replace just the glass,could you get that glass from a dealer in the u.s?im in the u.s so i want to know how they would be on my car.
