Are both side mirrors supposed to auto dim?

My driver's side view mirror and rear view auto dim, but the passenger definitely is not an auto dim mirror. I have a base 4WD Limited. Is it supposed to?

Both the driver's and passenger's side mirrors should autodim. Bring it to the dealer

Jeep removed Autodim on passenger side mirror of Limiteds for 2012, unless you add the Adaptive cruise package option.

^^ Yea really how much could that have saved them? But if you pay for the Adaptive package they like you and give you both mirrors..

I love the adaptive cruise control. Went on a road trip last weekend and played with it on the highway in traffic. It will even slow you down if you suddenly have a slower driver pull in front of you. Very cool.

So stupid, looks cheap with one mirror only, IMO. It's my mom's truck and I took it to wash it tonight and noticed it. She doesn't care, but I wanted to make sure it's supposed to be that way. Thanks for the answer.

Yeah I would assume it's a package deal. I have it on my loaded Overland, and I look at my mom's base MB GLK and it only has the driver auto dime side mirror as well.

Re: Are both side mirrors supposed to auto dim?

I decided to make sure my mirrors autodim while in my garage yesterday because I haven't really noticed them doing anything when driving at night. Stupid me but I assumed the rear view mirror would actually move but to my suprise it just gets darker which is cool. I tested this with the jeep in drive and shining a flashlight at the rearview to trip the sensor. The driver side mirror did nothing that I could tell. Is it supposed to move or turn dark like the rear view?

Turns bluish except for a very narrow band around the edge.

Re: Are both side mirrors supposed to auto dim?

Is the side mirror triggered by the sensor on the rear view mirror or is there something on the mirror that triggers it? I will mess around with it some more when I get home but I am pretty sure the side mirror didn't darken.
