05-07 Tow Mirror wiring help

My buddy has a small wrecker shop and managed to snag me a passenger mirror to match the drivers side replacement I wiped off several years ago..

The Problem:
The P.O. cut off the wires about 4" from where the mirror bolts on, not a big deal but I have 8 wires and everywhere I've read there should only be 7.
This looks like a true OEM mirror, it's solid unlike my aftermarket drivers mirror..

Black (Ground)
Blk w. W strip (Heat)
Brown (Marker)
Green (Turn Signal) Doesn't work..
Yellow (Glass adjustment Vertical)
Purple (Glass adjustment Vertical)
Yellow... ?
White... ?

I should only need 3 wires for adjusting the mirror but the other two wires do nothing no matter how I jump across them...

Any Ideas?
Thanks.

I'd have to pull the mirror again to look but then I wired everything else the two yellow wires looked identical. I tried jumping across different combinations with a hot wire from my battery but those last two wires didn't do anything.
