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.
