The LH exterior mirror may be equipped with an auto-dimming mirror glass. The LH exterior auto-dimming mirror function is controlled by the interior auto-dimming rear view mirror. The exterior mirror glass only darkens when the interior auto-dimming mirror detects bright light from behind the vehicle during nighttime conditions.
