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?

Re: rear view mirror does not change to night view
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.

This is a short and dirty video describing how to repair rearview ... electrical malfunctions such as nonworking or ...
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.

These mirrors are all made by one company, no matter the car maker, they all have the same problems, they are very unreliable, if u have power to the mirror which I am 100% sure u do the mirror will need to be replaced, they are not repairable they are about $250-300
