      HELP! Autodimming Mirrors Stuck on Dim

      Our 2015 XC60 T6 has developed a new problem, just after i replaced the front brake pads (see post:https://forums.swedespeed.com/showth...ont-Brake-Pads), but likely unrelated. All 3 mirrors are fully dimming, even at night. It's as if there is a car with high beams behind, but there isn't. I believe that this is a safety issue, especially at night. After the ignition is turned off, they slowly return to a non-dimmed state. I searched swede speed and found one instance of this problem in an XC90, but there was no conclusion. Any help will be appreciated. Specifically,
      1. Will my Steinngold extended warranty cover this problem?
      2. Has anyone seen this problem?
      3. What was the cause and solution?
      4. Is there a way to turn off autodimming until it is fixed? (perhaps a setting or even pulling a fuse?)
      Thanks in advance.

      I posted it here rather than in the XC60 sub thread because there is likely commonality across models.

      Fixed already! A connector that I had added to power a dash cam had slipped down and was covering the rear-view mirror's forward ambient light sensor. If only all problems were that simple to solve!
