Electrochromic (Dimming) Tow Mirrors

I had an opportunity to drive my truck for the first time at night and noticed the passenger tow mirror does not auto dim while the rear view and driver mirror both do. Is this by design or a faulty passenger mirror?



Thanks!

@duan0501 this was one of the first annoyances I had noticed with my new truck. Give it some time and you won't even think about it anymore. What I did was play ever so slightly with the angles of the passenger tow mirror so that I had good daylight viewing and at night the vehicle headlights behind me weren't blasting my eyeballs. Another thing I sometimes do at night is wear yellow tinted night driving sunglasses, and have found those to be a big help to drop the glare of oncoming headlights as well as those reflecting off that non-dimming passenger tow mirror.

Enjoy the new truck and welcome to our forum community, where you will find everyone is trying to do what they can to help others.
