Rear view mirror question

What's going on with my mirror? See pictures. Was unplugged when I bought car. Remember, gen 1 vipers are new to me. Have more questions but will address those in another thread. Thx in advance.

Doesn't the plug fit? The mirror might have been re-glued to the windshield, the glue doesn't last forever and maybe the previous owner forgot to attach the connection? I almost never use the mirror light anyway.

I figured the previous owner disconnected it for a reason. Kind of afraid to connect them without knowing what it does. Also, I can't get the remote to lock and unlock the doors and the horn does a weak honk when I press the lock button. I think I have a few issues with the alarm, power locks and the mirror. Any suggestions would be great.

I have it from a reliable man who had an rt/10, with a brain tumor, that's "For the dome light. No roof."

I know I'm being over cautious but this one owner car also had directional tires going the wrong way on wheels that should have been on the opposite sides. Put two new tires up front and was informed by the discount tire guy. They also fixed the rears and now the car drives way better. Here is a picture of the car in his storage building. See how the wheels look.

There are two little lights and switches on the bottom side of the mirror. The connection is for those. If that's a genI mirror it should connect. I'm not sure if there is a different connection for a genII

Looks in great shape. What year?

It's a 94. Could not be happier as it was just 60 miles south of me and a one owner since new. Was looking for about 3 years and this popped up out of knowhere. 25k miles on the clock with a clean Carfax. Prior owner topped off the tank with new gas mixing new with old causing some lurching issues. That's when I noticed the motor mount and possible u joint issue. I'll detail that in another thread. Thanks for the info.
