How do I use the automatic dimming rearview mirror?

The rearview mirror is a very important safety feature that offers you visibility out of your rear window. However, at night, the glare from other vehicles reflects off the mirror, and can lessen your visibility. To limit this glare, your rearview mirror has an automatic dimming feature. To turn on the automatic dimming, press the automatic dimming button, which is located on the rearview mirror. An indicator light will illuminate to confirm that the dimming feature is on. To turn the automatic dimming feature off, press the button a second time.
