  • Anonymous Feb 05, 2009

    I have the same problem with my 03 monte carlo ss, the wire on the back of the light may have a loose connection. I have to wiggle the cord around once and a while to establish a connection. Once i do it stays on for a couple weeks untill it gets loose again. i belive this is a common problem with thoes mirrors.

There is no fix for this the element in the mirror is going out and you will eventually see foggy areas around the outside part of the mirror and through the middle. These are very expensive I would just live with it or try to find one on Ebay or a salvage yard. Sorry

Gently tap the base of the mount upwards. I just replaced mine and I thought there was a cover over the winshield mount, turns out it is just pushed on to the wedge that is mounted to the windshield. Good Luck, webree

If the mirror had map lights in it the wires may be shorting out. The fuse for the dash lights also run the mirror mounted map lights. Mike

Why is my heated auto dimming driver side and rear view mirror getting dark when driving

Look in the fuse box for the fuse it will likely have other things on it but nothing to high voltage .
Pull the fuse and see what happens .
Honestly I have never heard of this .
Unless the mirrors lit or damaged somehow from to much heat damaging the coating on the back of the glass making it not a mirror any more .
This sounds like a factory defect

In my 2001 volvo s80 are there any control modules in my rear view mirror

Yes the S80/S60 and post 2001 V70 series cars have auto dimming mirrors which have a module designed to be programmed at a dealer when replaced. If you can read the car with Vida/Dice you can look in the Network settings to see the software version number. Only modules with a matching version number can be interchanged. If you care to browse Mattews Volvo Site you can find a repair method for this type of mirror by using the glass section from another mirror while retianiing the original controller board.

What is the button under rearview mirror for

The button on the bottom of the mirror is called the auto rear view dimming.

This button when turned on will dim the lights of the car behind you if they are bright lights. it is like the older cars where you would flip the lever on the bottom of the mirror if a car behind you had high beam lights on and it was shining in your eyes at night. this will do it automaticly hope this helps good day

How do i replace the rear view mirror in my 2003 subaru baja

This is the service procedure for a 2003 Subaru Forester, but should be the same: Rotate the mirror left or right about 90 degrees or as far as you can rotate it. There is a U-shaped clip that holds the mirror to its mount with a little U at the tip for pulling the clip out with needlenose pliers, etc. Buy new clip for reinstallation, about $6.10 from the dealer. There is a bladder in auto-dimming mirror that seem to burst with age and/or heat and a bubble of clear mirror with frosting appears that will move as you rotate the mirror. No recall that I have seen, but should be. Mine just went last week. $220 to replace at Winchester Subaru.

Sideview mirrors dont move certain ways.

I researched the maintenance manual. The fuse you need to replace is fuse 20 in the under dash fuse box. It controls side windows, washer motor, rear view dim function, and possible seat memory. There are a couple that link to the mirrors, but this is the one for this problem.
