I have an Overland that's loaded with all the tech and luxury packages (massage seats, night vision, steering assist, etc) and the manual just says they work automatically, if equipped.

Mine either don't work, or it doesn't have them, or they're broken. I've had auto dimming mirrors in a lot of different vehicles over the years (all German cars) and they worked really well. In my WL they don't seem to exist.

From the owners manual:

OUTSIDE AUTOMATIC DIMMING MIRRORS — IF EQUIPPED
The outside mirrors will automatically adjust for glare from vehicles behind you. This feature is controlled by the inside automatic dimming mirror. The mirrors will automatically adjust for headlight glare when the inside mirror adjusts.


So it seems they should just work... no settings to turn them on or off. Any way to know if I should have them? From what I read, it should...

I still can't find an answer as to what models have dimming mirrors.

My Overland has every tech and luxury package option but doesn't seem to have dimming mirrors. It has power folding mirrors, and they're heated, but they do not seem to dim at all.

Anyone know how to figure it out? I'm wondering if it was built wrong, or if the Overland doesn't have it. Mine is going back as a lemon, but I'm ordering a new one and would really like to make sure I get them on the next one, and/or be sure it got built right if it's supposed to have them. Jeep gives no information on this that I can find, aside from 'some of them are so-equipped'. Like... some of them have them because Jerry on the assembly line likes red Jeeps and he only puts them on those? Or what???

My fully loaded Overland 2-Row has them. Driver's side and rearview.
But not passenger side??? That's as stupid as buying a pair of sunglasses with only one tinted lens. Like... 'we gave you just enough self dimming mirrors to make you wish they all did it'?!?

Mine has the auto dimming glass on the drivers side, but not the passenger side, but it doesn't do anything. All the cars I've had in the past (mostly European) had it on both sides. Makes no sense why they would only put it on one side.

My 2017 limited has them so I am pretty sure your overland would have them. I think it is tied to the rear view camera. With the power button on it.
I wonder if you have the 'camera' rear view mirror disabled (ie using the optical mirror), it disables the auto dimming for the side mirror?
