Exactly what I just told you about over IM. I'm not sure if the stalk controls the power for the lights or controls the power to a relay, so you'd want to check the voltage of the line.

I drilled a hole through the mirror back, went through the door and out to the side indicator, very easy. But I only had 2 wires so my LEDs are only indicator. With 3 wires, as said above 1 is a ground, you can just attach that to a bolt in your door, the other one will be your lights, and the other your indicator. Good luck.

I drilled the holes, no problem there, and I know which wires are what for the LED's.

I need to know what wires perform what function on the gauge cluster wiring harness'.

I would use the power off the side markers. If I remember from installing my remote starter, the blinker wires from the steering column are very low power and only trigger a relay.

That's why I hooked LED wire pos to head light and neg to the wire (that was disconnected to do the side
markers blink). I used a coat hanger to get the wires through the door. When I dont have the meter I use
my 12v Battery from my hand drill and touch the wire untill I get the right connection.

You only lose the heated mirrors if you replace the OE mirrors. They still function the same with just cover&#39;s.

You get the wiring all figured out yet so I can just do what you did for mine!
