2003 pilot Ex. Rear view mirror has wires coming out of the back, but I've never noticed it to auto dim. Is this just auto dim, or compass as well?

Compass only, no auto dim. Traditional tab to flip manually from daytime to nighttime.

It doesn't have the traditional tab, which made me suspect that it was auto dim. Regardless, the mirror doesn't light up. Is there a fuse to check?

it's doesn't "light" up..it auto dims when a bright light source hits it..try it with a bright flash light you should see the bulb from the flash light if it's working properly

Interesting, the auto dim feature existed on the 2003 EX and was phased out by the 2006 EX-L? Hey, Honda! ?
