Default I am stumped, does anybody know?

For the life of me I can't figure out what the little button is on the middle of my rear view mirror. It has a round circle with a line threw it, kind of looks like a onstar button. When I press it a green light comes on the mirror. I don't know what the functionality is. There is nothing in the manually about it and when I called the dealer they didn't know what it was either and they said the two rams they had on the showroom didn't have the button. So my question is does anybody know what the button is and what does it do?

The dealer doesn't even know what it is?!? What the heck? I'm sure someone on here knows what it means.

Get in some night time traffic then turn it off and see if the mirror goes clear on ya . It sounds like you have a automatic darkening rear view mirror .

That's what I was thinking. Maybe some type of auto dimmer. I guess it wouldn't be auto if you have to press it though.

That what I was thinking maybe a light dimmer, but I haven't seen any difference when I have it on or off. I am thinking of getting one of those new aftermarket rear view mirrors with the built in back up cam. I just want to make sure if I remove my factory mirror I don't mess anything and that button isn't anything important. I was also thinking it might of been something for the uconnect.

Check out page 88 of the manual, it is explained there. Green light on means the dimming feature is active. Works great for night driving with bright headlights from behind.

Yup, auto dimming rear view mirror. My rear window is so dark, I don't think mine works!
