    There's no light on my auto-dimming mirror (03 Signum). Is it a different design mirror on yours?

    Are you talking about the sensor on the bottom as you face it? It looks like a yellow led but its just the light sensor.

    That's my auto-dimming mirror. You can see the sensor in the top right of the glass to detect the light falling on it (from cars behind). On the front of the mirror is another sensor to detect the ambient light so that it only dims when it's dark. No lights on mine of any description.
