    Hi,i have a problem with my drivers side dimming rear view mirror which does not auto dim since i've had the car,i removed the glass today to take a peak and see if it was anything obvious,the 2 wires were connected to the glass and there was a "spare" black connector plug in the mirror housing - does anyone know what or where this plug connects to and have any ideas why the mirror does not auto dim,the passenger and interior mirrors work fine - thanks in advance.

    Are they heated?

    If so, you'll need two connections for the heater.

    A minimum third for the dimming, or two for the dimming and a minimum third for the heater... whichever way you look at it.

    anyhow... [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
