    Rear View Mirror Auto Dim Stopped Working! Happen To You Too?

    So I don't know if this is a common occurance or not, but it has happened to me, and a buddy of mine. We both drive an 02 wrx. I haven't found any other threads on it, but I've seen a few 1 or 2 threads about people buying mirrors that the auto dim stopped working in them.

    So has then happened to anyone else? And are there any quick fixes for them, or do I just have to keep buying one every 30k?

    How many miles do you have on your car? My compass hasn't done that thing yet. It only freaks out and resets itself everytime I take a really hard turn lol.
