If the red light stays on when you lock the vehicle, this means there is an electrical issue with the system. Might need further dealership diagnosis.

Although the most common cause of the frequent false alarms is the hood contact switch, located in the left rear of the engine compartment, near the micro filter housing. About a 20$ part.

when things stop working I check fuses first.
wires usually have connectors on them so removing then replacing the connector would be a better fix. on/off not new connector
A wire may have become disconnected while working in the area.
They are probably under the headliner.

REARVIEW MIRROR HOW I CAN INSTALL


Typically the auto store will have a special adhesive for the base of the mirror to the windshield. It's a little glass 2-part system that you have to break and mix then apply it. You hold it onto the windshield with pressure applied for a minute or so, then slip the mirror over it with the clip they usually use to hold them in place. The adhesive is usually under $5. Good luck

The interior rear view mirror has temperature and compass displays, but only work for a short time at start- up.I have tried unplugging the harness on the back of the mirror and cleaning contacts. It`s...


Temperature Display
The inside rearview mirror supplies a 5 volt signal circuit and low reference circuit to the ambient air temperature sensor. The inside rearview mirror monitors and records the voltage on the signal circuit of the ambient air temperature sensor. The inside rearview mirror uses this recorded voltage to display the temperature on the temperature display portion of the compass/temperature display. The temperature display will show "ICE" when the ignition is first turned on and the current temperature is 3°C (37°F) or below. The display will toggle between "ICE" and the actual outside temperature for approximately 4 minutes.
The mirror will display "OC" if the mirror senses a temperature of less than -40°C (-40°F).
the mirror will display a "SC" if the mirror senses a temperature of greater than 112°C (143°F).



Replace the inside rearview mirror with compass. Refer to Inside Rearview Mirror Replacement .

Custom Rear view mirror


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.
