2008 Mirror color code help

I'm installing Kool Vue mirrors on my 07 SD.

Driver side was practically the same. No problem. Had to chop the plug from new mirror and splice old plug onto new mirror harness. No problem.

Passenger mirror I assumed would be the same. NOT.
Factory harness colors:
black/white
black
white
purple
yellow (x2)
green
brown

New mirror colors:
purple
purple/white
green
green/white
black
black/white
white
white/red
yellow
teal
white
blue/orange

Both mirrors are power/heated/parking/turn signal mirrors.
I have searched for 2 days numerous hours at every mirror link I could find. None show this wiring color code for these. No codes I found match these.
These are not tilt telescopic mirrors nor did the truck come with them.
Could someone identify what color is what please. Thanks

well the kool vue has same wires and colors, but they're not power fold or power telescoping, so those wires are for something else.. also, my left adjustment goes left, right goes right. I thought it was supposed to be backwards, so I'm not sure whats' going on..I guess I"ll just try different wires tomorrow and see if that gets it

I searched for days with no help. Yes I figured it out and meant to get back on sooner to help others with this issue.

Driver side
Red- left/down
yellow- right/down
blue- right/up
teal- blink
black- ground
black/white- mirr heat
brown- park

Passenger side
This is specifically for wiring the kool view harness to your factory wiring.
Brown on truck is brown on new mirror harness
Green on ruck is green on new mirror harness
Two yellows combine on truck and go to yellow combined with blue/orange stripe on new mirror harness
violet on truck goes to purple on new mirr
white on truck goes to teal on new mirr
Black is black
black/white is black/white

Other wires are not used (think there were four). These are not tilt tele mirrors.

Best I could figure on pass side, factory plug does the following:
green- down/left
yellow+yellow- right/up
violet- right/up
white- blinker
black- ground
black/white- mirr heat

Kool view does:
brown- park
green- down/left
yellow+blue/orange- right/up
purple- right/up
teal- blinker
black- ground
black/white- mirr heat

Not 100% on the right/up, down/left if that's how it is supposed to work, but what you see is how I got my mirrors to work.

Just like I read in many places, the up down is backwards on one mirror, the left right is backwards on the other mirror. I tried changing wires at the harness to no avail. They worked so I really didn't care.

Since I could find no answers anywhere on any forum, I got it figured out and here's my findings. Hope this helps someone else.
