SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: electrochromic rear view mirror does not dim when turned on

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

SOURCE: LED lights for locking and unlocking flash at the same

that system is part of D.A.S. 2( driver authorization system verson 2). the lights in the mirror will blink red when lock and green when unlock. during the self diagnoses portion they will blink simutanilusly when the remote key batteries are low and alternating when there is a malfunction with the key or other part of the driver authorization. it sounds like your remote key central locking batteries are low.

SOURCE: P reg merc c180. red light flashes on rear view mirror when drivi

If you have a small odd shaped key on the keyring there is a socket under the steering wheel (in the plastic housing) which mine fitted. By turning the key left or right in the socket it resets the light. I found that the flashing light indicated that the alarm had been triggered at some time when I had been away from the car and had switched itself off after a time. If you have this key you could try that.

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.

Remote locking


Is it the old style key? if so does the red light flash on it when you press the unlock/lock buttons?

does the red on the dash or under the rear view mirror flash?

2002 5 series alarm keeps going off


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.

IMMOBILIZER DOES'NT WORK


I have the same problem with my car. BMW replaced all the locks and gave me the new keys but they don't work. I tried to initialise them following the instructions on the manual but still a problem. I suspect the receiver is not working. Please advise.
