We purchased our 2012 Pilot EX-L in 2013, and the auto dim mirror never "worked". Power light was on, and I could turn it on and off. However, I never saw the dimming function operate. Last month, I finally replaced the mirror with an Ebay unit that said it worked. Same issue. I cannot make the mirror dim.

More background... this Pilot came with dark tint on all windows, including a 6" strip across the top of the windshield. After 6 years, maybe this is the problem?

Could the mirror not receive enough external light to switch modes?

At this point, I paid for a second power mirror that I cannot use. I'm almost ready to get a manual mirror and be done with the whole thing.

Any other ideas I might try?

Thanks in advance.

Try shining a light onto the back of the unit using a mirror if needed. See if it changes. If it does, the tint is probably blocking too much light. It thinks it’s always night
