    Default Auto Dimming mirror AAARRGGGHHH!

    Ive just got an auto dimming mirror and loom from my local scrapyard. Went out and fitted it but the indirect lighting is not working and when I flashed a torch into the sensor nothing happened to the mirror. I have seen in a previous post that fuse 27 in the boot was for this, checked it and the fuse is in place and I also tried swapping it with another 5amp fuse. Is there anything I have missed? Does it need Tech2'd?

    Any help will be most appreciated

    Best thing to try 1st is cover the sensor up on the back of the mirror (windscreen side) to simulate nighttime,if that doesn't work then you have a duff mirror,it doesn't require tech2 m8,HTH......

    Glenboy your a star, I had covered the sensor but not for long enough, kept my finger over it for about ten seconds and everything is working fine. Superb.

    Now you won,t be able to recognise the car behind if it is a police car if you are speeding, That was what one of my mates said about auto dipping mirrors. He hates them. He must speed a lot still then, I know he used to.

    I know what you mean Ed. I don't like that feature of it but the indirect lighting is worth it and I don't really speed........much.......only if i'm late.
