Automatic dimming interior rear view mirror

Automatic dimming interior rear view mirror  - Interior mirror - Driver Controls - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

The interior rear view mirror and a drivers side exterior mirror have an auto-dimming function. The electronic day/night mirrors will change from the normal (high reflective) state to the non-glare (darkened) state when bright lights (glare) reach the interior mirror. When the interior mirror detects bright light from behind the vehicle, the interior rear view mirror and the drivers side exterior mirror will automatically adjust (darken) to minimize glare.

The mirrors will automatically return to the normal state whenever the vehicle is placed in R (Reverse) to ensure a bright clear view when backing up.

Do not block the sensors on the front and back of the interior rear view mirror since this may impair proper mirror performance.

Note: A rear center passenger and/or raised rear center headrest (if equipped) may also block the light from reaching the sensor.

Do not clean the housing or glass of any mirror with harsh abrasives, fuel or other petroleum-based cleaning products.
