rearview mirror off a Stratus wiring help please

I just pulled an auto dimming rearview mirror from a Stratus (I think it was a stratus, there wasn't much left to tell). It's one of the ones that has the map lights in the bottom.
Problem is, I don't know how to wire it up. I already have an auto-dimming rear view mirror that came stock, but this one has more wires running into the connector. I'm looking at 5 wires and I have no idea what they would do. Here is what I am looking at

in case you can't see it I am looking at 5 wires in this order:

blue/red
black
red/blue
green/orange
orange/black

Can somebody tell me what I need to hook up to what?
I am hoping to be able to just use the connector that I already have and just splice in the wires for the map lights.
I am concerned though that the wire order might not be the same.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Blue/Red = Ign Power
Black = ground
Red/Blue = Reverse Inhibit (not necesary)

for the other two, one is hooked to the circuit for the dome lights, and the other are for the always on source

Thanks for the help, do you happen to have any idea which one I would splice into which? I imagine I can tap into the courtesy lights in my evic, but which color to which color?
Also, do you know if these are in the same order as the ones in my Trep Mirror connector?

From the maplight connector.
Yellow = Courtesy Lamp
Pink = Always on

heres how to figure out the last 2 wires on the mirror, if you have a electrical multimeter, set it to continuity check, put the black part of the multimeter on the black part of the wire, then making sure that the switches on the lights are off, put the red part to each wire, the one with the continuity, will be the dome light, and the one without any continuity is the one that will get the always on power.

Awesome! Thank you so much. I'm learning about this electrical stuff, slowly, but I'm learning.
