Default Hardwire Radar Detector To Rearview Mirror

Ok so I want to hardwire a radar detector I just bought, I have the kit for it and it has 2 ends, the positive and the ground. I'm trying to hardwire it to the auto dimming Rearview mirror but I see 5 wires back there, an orange one a blue one and a black one, black with red stripe and a gold colored one. Which are the -/+?

Probe the wires from the BACK of the plug, not the front where it connects...you don't want to short anything...it all runs back to the BCM...
