Mine is a Gentex 455. The front is identical to yours, although I only have 1 button and 2 green lights (one on both sides of the button). The rear connector on mine is also 7 pin. So far, I have a white/green wire on the leftmost pin, with a black wire connected to the 2nd pin. Which pins do you have connected for the probe?

Ok here is my pinout, may or may not be the same for you. I hope this drawing makes sense for you.

GNTX-177

_______------_______
[7--6--5--4--3--2--1]

1=pink=12v switched
2=black/white= ground
3=green=backup lamp feed (optional...disables dimming when in reverse)
4=empty
5=empty
6=green/white=temp sensor probe
7=orange=temp sensor probe

there is no polarity on the probes so it doesn't matter which wire connects to which on the probe.

I did a quick google search for the 455 and it doesn't look the same at all from what I see. The connector looks different and yours has homelink? If it has homelink you will also need a 12v constant power source as well as a 12v switched.

I just took a picture of the back of mirror for you.

You can see i removed the pin for the green backup wire leaving 4 wires only.

Thanks for the pinout assignments. I'll probably have to pop the mirror off & make a run to radio shack & see if they have a 7 pin plug I can use (it'll look much cleaner). Mine doesn't have homelink. Here's the front:



And the rear through the windshield:

I've been looking for one in the junk yards. I'm bound to find one eventually. I just picked up a homelink module from a Lincoln LSC visor. I'll find a Gentex....

Yeah I searched the local yard here before buying mine on ebay. Unfortunately the yard here doesn't believe cars newer than 95 belong in junk yards. How do they make money selling parts off cars from the 80s?

Its a shame that you buy a 30,000+ vechicle and doesnt even offer an outside temp. Another reason why Nissan is not going to be able to keep the X araound.... nad thats SAD!

Those pinout assignments match mine as well.

Both my OEM Autodim/Compass Mirror off my 2011 and the replacement Gentex 453 series Autodim/Temp/Compass has the same 7 pin connector, but it's different than yours. I wonder why they would change that? The mirror otherwise looks identical.

You may be able to find a bare wire with a pin on it that can be inserted into your current connector. The temp sensor that came with my kit just had two pins on the end that were inserted into the connector after it was run through the car.

OK... so this thread quickly got disorganized... theres like 4 diff model numbers floating around now, with different styles and wiring harnesses. Which one is the best to get if I wanted to add this to my truck? IE Easiest install with all 3 options, Dim/Comp/Temp ?

Option 1: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Gente...fAudioQ5fVideo

Option 2: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Gente...fAudioQ5fVideo

Option 3: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Gente...fAudioQ5fVideo
