Rear View Auto Dim Mirror Not Working

So it appears the auto dim feature of the rear mirror isn't working (or not as well as I remember).


Any ideas?


Do they go bad or is it a setting in VCDS I can adjust?

No. I wasn’t sure. But I am now.

That was the problem. Apparently the stealership turned it off when they did work on my vehicle a few weeks ago, but I wasn’t aware it had a physical on/off switch.


Thank you for the information.

lolz. In your defense, that little button is pretty hidden.

No VCDS adjustments or canbus connections. The mirror is a self contained unit, which you will find is made by the same OEM used by other car makers. It does have a output wire that supplies power to run the optional external auto dimming door mirrors found in some model years.
