Hey guys hope you all can help. On my Auto Dimming rearview mirror I think it stopped auto dimming. I have a '12 Legacy and the other day driving I noticed the lights behind me were super bright. I kept paying attention to it and it never dimmed/ tinted whatever it does. I tried to turn it off and on a few times, but nothing happened. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is happening or how to fix it without bringing it to the dealer, my closest Subaru dealer is 2.5 hours away.
Sorry to say that there is no repair for that, when mine went it was replaced via the dealer. If you are handy with tools, you could replace it yourself but why when you are probably still under warranty.
Is there power to the mirror at all? In my Legacy, I noticed the compass would go out and my Homelink buttons stopped working. I checked the connector inside where the light/sunroof switch piece is and I had a loose connection. I've had no issues since the fix.
One way to test the mirror to see if it is functioning correctly, is to put a piece of black electrical tape over the small "eye" behind the mirror on the driver's side.
