Default Rearview wiring help?

Got this rearview mirror out of a earlier Vue, going to put it in my SC2.

Has two buttons on it, COMP and TEMP, obviously a compass/temp/auto dim mirror.

Wiring is 5 wires:

Gray
Black
Yellow
Green
Green/Black

If anyone with a service manual or knowledge could tell me what wires are what I'd be much obliged. Part numbers on the back are DCA-8834559596, or a I E11 15607.

Thanks1

For a 2004 Vue:

Gray -> Temperature sensor
Black -> Ground
Yellow -> 12 volt power
Green -> Exterior lamp power
Green/Black ->Temperature sensor

Good info, thanks.

Wonder what the exterior lamp power wire is for? And why there are two temp wires?

Odd.

I believe the exterior lamp power lead dims the display.
The temperature sensor isn't grounded so two wires are needed to
complete the circuit.

Attached diagram is for 05 Vue mirror.

On-Star connections not present on all versions.

Exterior lamp wire (light green) appears to be connected to B/U lamps and must be for an option I don't have on my 05 as I just tried in driveway and didn't notice any change on mirror when I moved through P,R,D, etc.

I think the auto dim turns off if the car is in reverse.

That sounds very plausible ... I'll check next time I'm out after the sun goes down.

Good catch!

Does anyone know what the Comp button is for? Not sure what it does to be honest!
