    Omega auto dim mirror

    Hi does anybody know how to wire up an Omega auto dim mirror ?
    the one I've just got has 11 wires , I've followed the how to's
    Black = ign live
    Brown= earth
    white/black tracer =switched earth via interior light to prevent auto dim whilst interior light is on
    grey/black tracer=switched live via reverse light to prevent auto dim whilst reverse lights are on ,
    have tried the above in the dark and the mirror doesn't dim
    I know the mirror has 11 wires these are to auto dim and to adjust the mirror remotely and something to do with driver seat settings ,
    What I need to know is am I useing the correct wires or is there diferant wires with this particular mirror ?

    You have 2 of the wires wrong. It should be white/black tracer= switched live via reverse light to prevent auto dim whilst reverse lights are on &
    grey/black tracer = switched earth via interior light to prevent auto dim whilst interior light is on.
    The mirror should only dim at night when the rearward facing sensor detects more light on it than the forward facing one.
