Ofers (2SSRS) plug and play harness for AAC Concept Mirrors

Alright guys so I got Ofers harness today and installed my mirrors along with the plug and play harness. The installation is very simple. I took some pictures to guide you along.

-First, you will obviously want to install your mirrors

-To install the harness you need to pop the covers off the top of the tail light compartment so you can get to the harness.

Ofer's harness:



Exposed tail light cavity with the harness:



-Unplug the harness



-Plug in Ofer's harness



To get the wire into the trunk, I slit the grommet that has the tail light wires going through it and pushed the white wire into the trunk.



I ran the white wire inside the trunk liner, under the rear seat and down the side of the car under the plastic trim.



To get the wire into the door I managed to run the wire through the existing harness into the door.

Once you get the wire into the door you will wire it up as follows:

For dual circuits using AAC's dual circuit harness
-The red wire in Ofer's haness will go to the red wire in the dual circuit harness
-The white wire will go to the orange wire in the AAC dual circuit harness

Without the dual circuit harness from AAC (parking lights only)
-The white wire in Ofer's harness will go to the red wire in AAC dual circuit harness.

For the ground (black wire hooked up to the mirror), I found a ground wire in the main harness of the door and used a t-tap to attach the ground. It is the thick black wire in the main harness.

Just repeat the process for the other side of the car and you're good to go.

Here is a video of the mirrors in action with dual circuits:

I did not order the dual circuit harness from AAC, but I do not want to hook up to the parking lights. I want it to work as a blinker only. which wires would I hook up to so that they turn on with the blinkers only?

You will need to order the harness from Ofer so that they will hook up to the turn signals.

This DIY may not be any good. We ran into an issue with the harness so Ofer is going to redesign it or if he can't make it work he's going to work on a harness that works off the front turn signals. The issue we found is that every time you push on the brake it activates the turn signal function on the mirror just without the blinking. Basically forward facing brake lights on your mirrors lol. It will be at least a week before he gets the new harness made so stay tuned.

The problem I found with the harness has to do with the turn signal function so Ofer is working on a fix.

If you don't want to wait it would be easy to wire up. Coming out of the mirror is a black and white wire. The black is your ground. Use a T-tap and tap the black wire from the mirror to the thick black wire in the main harness inside the door. It will be obvious which black wire I'm talking about because it is thicker than all the other wires in the harness.

Next run a wire from the drivers side front turn signal into the drivers side door and connect it to the white wire coming out of the mirror. Run a wire from the passengers side front turn signal into the passengers side door and connect it to the white wire. That will give you just the turn signal function.

Tomorrow I will go out and look to see which color wire you need to tap into on the turn signals.

see post 73 here, i think the 3rd video show were you can hook up to the BCM wire for the turn signals only. or you can go out through the firewall and connect at the front turn signal (see 1st video) blue wire.

i prefer not to hook at the BCM????why??? just me. but its an option hope this helps

I'm sure that Ofer will come up with a fix. At worst it's a $20 add on for a converter box to split the turn signal and brake signals.

I tapped into the wires at front turn signal for my mirror mounted turn signals.

Ok, I know this is an old thread, but do you guys know if Ofer's PNP harness for the Oracle side mirrors is still available?

I just checked the GEN5DIY website, and I can't find any PNP harness for this application.

I'm getting ready to install these mirrors, but before I take the plunge splicing and praying, I want to be 100% sure there is no PNP option that I'm missing out on.
