Question about 2002 Buick LeSabre

Rear view mirror does not change to night view

The rear view mirror is to automatically change to night viewing but it doesn't do this any longer. The lights on the mirror itself on the mirror is on.
I cannot adjust the mirror to block the headlights of oncoming cars in the rear view mirror.
The fuses seem to be ok.
What do you suggest?

I have allot of experience with these mirrors, if your just stopped working it lasted longer than most, many never even made it out of factory warranty, the problem is the mirror not any fuse, the cost of the new unit is around $200.

I have a 2007 LTZ Tahoe and this is the first time a little red light has come on the rear view mirror. Does anyone have a clue what it might mean?


I believe that light is the 'automatic day/night mirror' indicator. You can turn it on and off by pressing one of the buttons on the mirror. See owners manual for more info.

My '97 Deville driver side rear view mirror is looking partly "bronze" and partly "silver". It is now rather difficult to see a clear image in it. What could be the problem?


The mirror adjusts itself at night to get rid of glare like your rear view does, this is done by a liquid in the glass when it goes "bad" you will get the problem you have. The solution is have a dealer replace the mirror or an auto glass store can glue a replace mirror over the existing but you will lose the self adjusting at night.
