'01 with compass/antiglare mirror. I must have pressed the antiglare to off a while back, because it wasn't working and I never bothered to investigate it. Today, after car sat outdoors in the heat at the dealer's for other repairs, the antiglare surface showed up on most of the mirror excepting a silver glob on the upper part. The view is distorted and murky in the daylight. Can this be reversed, or must I replace what is likely an expensive item?
Did anyone ever have a fix for this? Was the rearview mirror going out along with the clock and a few other electrical issues? Can this be fixed without replacing it?

Calibrate the compass built into the upper-right corner of the rearview mirror by holding the compass button (an "N" with two crossing lines) until your zone number appears. Determine your zone number by looking at the map in the owner's manual. Press the compass button until a "C" appears. Then drive in a circle three times at 5 mph or less in an uncongested area. The compass will automatically orient as a result of the circling.
2003 Chevy Silverado our rearview mirror has gone off and the airbag light stays on. i've determined that this is a fuse, the SIR fuse under the hood, but what I can't figure out is why it's blowing. It's either something to do with when we hook up the lights to the trailer or it might be from where we installed a new car stereo. I took it to the Chevy dealer for some other things and told them there was a fuse blown to the rearview mirror and to the airbag and just asked them to replace the fuse while it was in the shop. on top of the $700 i was already spending, they charged me $98 to diagnose that it was a blown fuse and like $11 to change it, even though I already told them it was the airbag fuse. Highway robbery. And they wonder why we don't like 'em.
My airbag light will not cut off and my temp and compass on my rearview mirror cut off the same time it went out too... I changed the fuse because it was blown... it works for a couple of days and then cuts back off... I took it to the dealership and they did a dianogstic check and can't find the problem
Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**
However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.
The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
