    Default auto dipping rear view mirror light

    Being driving around in a Zafira Hire car since November and last night noticed that the rear dipping mirror has an orange light, that lights up the gearstick area, a handy feature.

    Yet this morning when I turn the lights on it doesn't light? (daylight)

    My questions are

    1: Does the vectra auto dipping rear view mirror have this light?
    2: How does the light switch on, as it doesn't seem to come on with the rest of the dash lights?


    Thanks......

    The auto mirror (function and orange light) works on an independent light sensor - a little rectangular window in the back of the mirror (facing the windscreen). If you cover this whilst driving you'll see the orange light come on and the mirror dim. It's totally independent of the vehicle lighting switch.

    What Doug said.

    Point to note, this used to be fitted as standard equipment across the whole range, now I believe it's an option you have to specify and pay for.

    I think it was dropped on the SRi as I seem to remember some people asking about how to fit one. Anyone out there without indirect night lighting that can confirm?

    Spikey, yep I enquired as I had it on my Laguna and really liked it, too much effort to retro-fit though, (SRI Estate 3.0), and a little expensive!.................shame.

    Does the auto-dim mirror always come with the rain sensor? It looks like it comes as one unit that attaches on the windscreen? So, you can't have one without the other - is that right?
