    Default Interior light

    I notice that a little yellow light comes on at night behind the mirror and lights up the gear shift area but doesn't come on in daylight with the lights on -= how does this work? Is there a night sensor? Where is it?

    Yeah there is a sensor on the back of the mirror, it also contols the auto dimming of the mirror at night

    The sensor at the base of the mirror (in the centre) controls the dimming of the mirror.

    The sensor at the back of the mirror just tells the other sensor whether it's day or night time.

    I thought auto dimming uses both so that it doesn't dim the mirror during the day

    Perhaps I worded what I said incorrectly. The sensor on the back of the mirror acts like a switch. In dailylight it disables the orange light and dimming mirror sensor (the one at the base of the mirror), but at night switches them on. It has no effect on how much the mirror dims as that is controlled by the amount of light being shone onto the sensor at the base of the mirror by a car from behind you.
