Rear view mirror does not dim.

Power is on.
Rear view mirror does not dim.
How common is this defect ?
I see no solutions via Google besides replacing the mirror with some ricer mod.
Prefer to keep the car stock.

There must be some kind of limit to equine beatings in here, especially when they have passed.

Pure gold. I need to meet some of these members in real life. On second thought nevermind. I might hang myself due to frustration.

Where would you like me to connect the MM? What does the black lead connect to? What does the red lead connect to? Post a photo. What measurement am I looking for?

As for the other useless posts, It appears no one actually has any clue about how to fix this.

time to open your velcro wallet on the chain, and let someone else look into it.
