Do Both outside mirrors dim?

On page 1-12 of the Camaro Owners Manual it says,

AUTOMATIC DIMMING MIRROR

Vehicles with automatic dimming outside mirrors will adjust for glare of headlamps behind you.


The manual says Mirrors but in my case only the drivers mirror dims. What has been your experience? Do both mirrors dim?

The driver side mirror is controlled by the rearview mirror, so be careful if you ever have a problem with either one, My Trailblazer had the driver mirror replaced, it takes a different wiring harness than a non dimming mirror. They put in a reg mirror but had to replace the wiring harness to match. I noticed my side mirror didn't dim but the rearview did. I told the dealer, they checked it and said it wasn't wired for it. I had to show them my Trailblazer LTZ comes standard with it. That's when they found out the mechanic had put in the wrong mirror and harness to make it work. They took care of it.

You're so good to me...Thanks! That answers my question.

I love the dimming mirror and wish I could get a dimming windshield for the sun!
