Center rear view mirror swap.


New member
I have a 2015 Equinox LS.

Originally, it did not come with a self dimming rear view mirror, but did have Onstar. So I recently purchased one from a used parts place.

Removing and installing the new one wasn't a problem, but what I'm running into is the self dimming doesn't work. It stays normal all the time. The Onstar buttons work fine.

I also checked the wires coming from the old one to the new one and it's the same number and type.

So my questions are:
Do I have a bad mirror?

Do I have to have the car programed to see the auto-dim mirror?

Is there a special procedure to install this thing so it will work correctly?

Thanks in advance, any help is appreciated. :throw:
