Auto-dimming Side Mirrors

All,

I noticed the other night that when I have the auto-dimming mirrors option on it does seem take away the brightness of car lights on both my rearview and drivers side mirror, however, the passenger side mirror does not seem to change at all. Is this normal?

Seems that the feature is on MY 2011 but not MY 2012 from what I have read elsewhere here. I have it on mine.

2012 Grand Cherokee Limited only has auto dim mirror on rearview and driver, not passenger mirror unless the Advanced Cruise Option package was chosen.

Re: Auto-dimming Side Mirrors

I'd bet the wiring is still there, though. It's probably just a different glass mirror part. Easier to just pull the glass from production, especially if some option packages still call for it.

Did anyone confirm whether or not the wiring harness for the dimming leads is in the passenger mirror or not? I had to get a replacement mirror glass and the one that I received actually has the dimming capabilities. Just need the wires from the harness if they're in door somewhere.
