    Omega Auto Dipping Mirror Help

    Im trying to fit the Omega auto dipping mirror in my mk4 hatch and im having trouble. now I know theres a couple of you who have done this mod so i know it can work properly.
    ive connected the brown wire to earth and blue/gray to ignition live, is this right??
    when i switch on the ignition the mirror just dips straight away and wont come back up.
    ive also noticed I have some different wires from the vvoc how 2, ive got green/pink and pink/purple for the interior light and reverse wire.
    any ideas whats going wrong??

    There are 2 different mirrors it seems.

    With mine there are 4 wires that need connecting which are:
    Black: Ignition live
    Brown: Earth
    Grey/black trace: Stops the mirror tinting when earthed (Connects to the wire that goes earth when the interior light is turned on)
    White/Black trace: Stops the mirror tinting when 12v applied (Goes 12v when the car is put in reverse).
