Auto Dim Side Mirrors

Is both the drivers AND passenger side mirrors supposed to auto dim, or just the drivers side?

I ask because my passenger side does not.

Just driver side I believe.

I hate how that mirror sort of "doubles" your vision... everything looks blurry/weird... bleh.

I never really liked this feature unless some A-hole is behind me with outrageously bright lights. But it sorta makes it hard to see some times that just my opinion.

I didnt even notice the passenger side not doing it till my girlfriend was complaining about the bright lights in her eyes from the jerk behind us.

Id like it better if it extended to the edge of the mirror and didn't stop at the defogger strip, it really doesnt 100% do its job as is.

Not calling you out on it but that has to be incorrect all the literature from GM only states the other 2. If you have that then consider yourself lucky I guess since everyone else’s does not.

only driver side mirror and rear view mirror do the auto dimming. i agree with a previous post, when they aren't auto dimming (like during the day) it kind of double visions, which kinda sucks. nothing to big though....still like the auto dim feature IMO

Who cares when you have friends like us, we are here to help you. The search button doesn't exactly help in like 80% of situations.

Oh to answer your post, yes it's only the drivers side. Which is very confusing because it's the driver who uses all the mirrors not the passanger so why not have the right side view mirror without the auto-dimming feature?

I believe the "line" you are referring to is for the heated mirror.

These dim with a blueish green tint. I had a 2005 Silverado with outo dim rear view and don't remember this color when it dimmed. It was just darker like most manual dimming mirrors.

Old thread, but it is on the "2" level cars, both 2LT and 2SS.
