Burndog Thank you to all that posted. I'll have to download the full Manual.

BacaraJKU Yup, light sensor to detect headlights. You will see the same thing on the front of mirror as well to detect day/night. Mirror only dims if front sensor detects night time and rear detects light. You can test this by covering up front sensor and shining light into rear facing sensor.

Airbag?
You probably searched the "User's Guide" that came with your Jeep, not the full "Owner's Manual" which can be downloaded here:

Jeep Owners | Download an Owners Manual 2004 - 2011 | Jeep

Or, Jeep customer service will send you a printed copy free for the asking.

From the 2013 Owner's Manual:

Attachment 249089



The "green light" to the right is the sensor, and doesn't light.

Burndog Thanks for that info... I believe the auto dim is when the left green light is on (windshield rear view mirror).

What's the green light on the right for? I've not seen that one lit which is why I was thinking airbag.

nekojku Green means on. Orange means off.

For auto dimming.

+1 this!

It will automatically dim when headlights are behind you unless you turn it off so that the green light is off, then it works like any mirror.
