Disable auto-dimming mirrors?

Does anyone know if you can disable these? Both the rear view and the side view mirrors? I find that it dims too dark and I have trouble seeing at night. Plus my front windows are tinted so that makes it even worse. I don't see an option for it in uconnect and nothing in the manual either. Could this possibly be disabled by the dealer? I have a 2014 Overland. Thanks for your help.

Re: Disable auto-dimming mirrors?

Subscribed... normally there is a power button on the mirror (like in our honda) and its the first thing I do at night. I hate it.. makes it hard to see if its the FIVE O behind me.

Yes, there is a power button on the interior rear view mirror. It will turn off auto dimming of all the mirrors.

Re: Disable auto-dimming mirrors?

Like jordan said.

From the 2012 O.M.

Automatic Dimming Mirror — If Equipped


This mirror automatically adjusts for headlight glare
from vehicles behind you. You can turn the feature on or
off by pressing the button at the base of the mirror.Alight
in the button will illuminate to indicate when the dimming
feature is activated. The mirror is twisted on the
windshield button counterclockwise and requires no
tools for mounting.
NOTE: This feature is disabled when the vehicle is
moving in reverse.

Re: Disable auto-dimming mirrors?

I'll have to look closer. I didn't see it on the mirror on my '14, and didn't see anything in the owner's manual.

Well, they have to be powered, so there is a wire somewhere with my clippers name on it.

Re: Disable auto-dimming mirrors?

Go figure that Jeep would leave that out of the manual on the 2014. Well there should be some way to disable it. No option in the EVIC?

If you didn't see it in the owner's manual, I'll bet it ain't in there!

No nothing in there either. It's so weird. Think maybe there's a fuse I can disconnect?

Re: Disable auto-dimming mirrors? + Distortion

I don't know if my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited has a button for auto dimming or not, however I have a very disturbing distortion in both of my outside mirrors. Almost impossible to look at without getting nauseated. I read on this site about similar problems with 2010 models and would have hoped the distortion was addressed by now. Does anyone know if this is still a known issue? I would not consider the "auto dimming" a feature at all if I had known about the distortion.
