My 2012 SEL didn't have the harness. I had to splice into an ACC wire, I believe I used the wire that powered the compass. There is also a constant ON you'll be able to use for map lights, garage door, etc.
No need to rip down the headliner, just remove the A-pillar trim, there is a bundle of wires that is easy to access and each has just barley enough slack to do a proper splice.

On my job2 2013 Ti, I couldn't find a harness/plug in the headliner for an auto-dimming mirror.
My Gentex autodimming mirror (with homelink) had three wires: ground, constant 12v (homelink) and ACC (ignition) 12v. I was able to wire all three into the moonroof MOTOR harness.
If you pull out the plastic upper console (that contains the sunglass holder, moonroof switch, etc), and look up into the roof (assuming you have a moonroof), you should see a gray connector that plugs in facing the passenger side of the car.
The BLACK wire (heavier gauge, thin white stripe) is ground.
The white wire (thinner gauge) is accessory power and turns off immediately with ignition.
In one corner of the connector, there's a heavier gauge orange wire (forget the stripe and I didn't get photos) that's constant power.
TEST ALL OF THIS BEFORE TAPPING ANYTHING!!!!!!
Get a cheap multimeter... you shouldn't be messing with wires without one. Learn how to check for 11-15 volts DC. Test everything you read on these websites. Don't tap wires unless you've seen for yourself what they do.
If you don't have a moonroof, It's possible you still have the harness and plug. Check and see... if you do, it's a great source for the mirror.

|dbsimms63||Did anyone ever find out if the electrical connections for the auto dimming mirror are still under the head liner?|

|dbsimms63||Let everyone know if you look and find them, they would be very interested.|

|dbsimms63||I guess you'll have to look for yourself.|

|4havnfun||Does anyone know if the wiring for the mirror is still up in the headliner of the 2013 Titaniums or if it was stripped out when they removed an auto dimming mirror as an option?|

Would be nice if the buttons were illuminated; tough to see in the dark!
Otherwise, works really well.
