    I searched the threads and didn't see the information. I got a 2008 without homelink. It appears looking at other posts that there is no harness tucked up under the headliner. I was thinking about going to a junkyard to get a homelink mirror and the harness. Does anyone know where the other end of the harness plugs into (other than the one at the mirror)? If someone else has come across a similar post with the answer, I would appreciate the link.

    Following. I would like to do the same but as far as I know as you stated, no extra wiring harness for manual mirror model.

    Ok after research in the junkyard identifying the wiring harness and the amount of work getting to it, I'm crossing off that mirror homelink. option. I did found a home like out of a ford that goes in the visor. After further investigation it will not fir in our Prius visor, the mirror gets in the way.
    I have another option, mounting it in the pocket that's below the radio. I think I can tap of the cig lighter for power and ground. I dont think the homelink requires too much amperage.

    The harness goes into roof cover and likely linked to somewhere else.

    Everything you need it contained in the mirroe itself. I just bought a homelink mirror off ebay for $35shipped that included the connector and it just had 3 wires sticking out the back of the mirror. Look at a few becuase most dont include the connector that goes into the mirror.

    If you pop off the lights cover just above the mirror you will find some wires you can tap into. I used a volt meter to find an always hot wire. I wired the 2 power wires to power and grounded the other on a screw to the body. It was super quick and easy and cheap :)

    3 wires on the mirror: white/black strip is ground, Black-switched power(dimming), red constant power(homelink)

    I also just used black shrink wrap to clean up my wiring.
