Did this swap today! Thanks for the DIY this is the best one I've found

I had the same dumb mirror as OP before swap, just pulled in the two pins for switched + and ground and the mirror fired right up, calibrated, and homelink works!

The only problem I'm having is that the auto-dim doesn't seem to work and the mirror gets really HOT near the homelink side at the top... is that normal? haha

Otherwise, seems good so far

Edit: I had a loose pin! All is well now, cool as a cucumber haha ... also ran the wire to Pin 1 for the reverse-cancel.
