Has anyone ever tapped switched power from the rearview mirror? If so, what is the color of the wire and what is the best way to get to it? Thanks

According to my 2009 STS Service Manuals the pink wire is the switched source. The always hot wire is Light green. the pink wire comes from the Run/Crnk Relay through the RIM/RPA/ISRVM/CLM 10 amp fuse. There is a wire bundle the attaches to the left back of the mirror. I have the 1SG package so your mirror may or may not be different.

There are two pink wires. I think it matters!

EChas3 is correct, there are 2 pink wires. One to Pin 13 and one to pin 16. You want the wire to pin 13. There are 16 pins/terminals in the connector. The one you want is in the bottom row, 5 in from the left side. Number 16 is the last terminal in the bottom row. Sorry about leaving the second pink wire out.
