May inform.
Certain vehicles have an interior rear view mirror that features an automatic photochromatic dimming function and an
electronic compass with LED display.
The compass mirror is a self-contained unit and does not interface with any other vehicle system or electronic control
unit. The mirror is fixed to a metal bracket attached to the windscreen.
A three pin connector provides the electrical connection to the mirror's internal circuit board. Pin-1 of the connector
provides the 12V power supply to the board via the auxiliary relay located in the engine compartment fusebox. When
the ignition switch is turned to the 'II' position, a 12V supply is provided to energise the coil of the auxiliary relay via
fuse 26 in the passenger compartment fusebox. The auxiliary relay's contact supply voltage is provided from the
vehicle battery through fusible links 1 & 7. When the relay's contacts close, a 12V supply is fed to the compass mirror
circuit board via fuse 15 in the passenger compartment fusebox. This is the supply voltage feed for the mirror's internal
Pin-2 of the electrical connector provides the path to earth.
Pin-3 of the electrical connector is a 12V ignition switched supply voltage (position 'II' of the ignition switch). The
supply voltage is provided to the mirror's circuit board via fuse 25 in the passenger compartment fusebox, and the
reverse lamp switch (normally closed) for vehicles with manual transmission or the starter inhibitor / reverse light
switch (normally closed) for vehicles with automatic transmission. This is the supply voltage feed for the mirror's
photochromatic dimming function.
