    Hardest part is getting the mount covers off. lol
    The rest is super easy.
    Grab the mirror & turn it clockwise to unlock it.

    Thanks. I already have the 911/Assist buttons as well as the microphones on my mirror, hoping it will be just a plug and play, no harness. No clue why someone decided to cheap out on the auto mirror with everything else that's on this truck. I mean seriously, you've already got a shit load of electronics built into this mirror, how much more does it cost to add an auto dimming mirror? Maybe $10 on the manufacturing end! That and the fact that it's a 2500 Cummins that came from the factory without tow mirrors are something I will never understand.

    Ok, so I think the auto-dimming mirror I got is a dud. Does any of your auto mirrors have the little green light on it? My '06 had it, this one does not. I've driven to work twice now early in the morning and it's hard to tell if it's doing anything at all. The only way I can get the green light to turn on between the buttons it to press either the Assist or 9*1*1 buttons, then the light goes out when I cancel it. Does this sound right? Place I bought it from says there's a 90 return policy but I'd rather get it to work if I can. Checked the fuse (F101) and it seem fine. Not sure where else to look. Is there a sales code that needs to be flashed?

    I *think* with the 8.4 radio you will have the dealership to add a sales code in order to get the auto dim function to work.
    On my 5.0/RA2 with voice control the auto dim works without an additional sales code.
    (I can't turn it off through radio/evic tho, there's just no menu for auto dim settings.)

    Yeah, there's no setting in mine either, just wanted to get clarification before I went to the dealer. I've found multiple sales codes for the Auto dimming mirror, just not sure which one I am supposed to use. I found GN5, GNK and GNT with a JS family code. No clue which one I'm supposed to use.

    Got my Auto Dimming Mirror installed and will be heading to the dealership on Saturday to get the GN5 code added to my truck. Sounds like they've done it before cuz the service manager said "no problem". I will let everyone know how it goes.

    I notice that the Auto Dim Mirror sits a little lower then the Manual Mirror I had originally, so that's why you need the different plastic covers. I see it also has a sensor on the backside looking forward, is that for Auto High Beam function??? Wonder if there is a code that can be added to make that work also???

    I have never heard of anyone being able to get the code for AutoDim added. I believe several have tried and found it's one of many on the long list of codes dealers aren't allowed to add. The sensor on the front is for automatic high beams. I doubt that code will be available to you either.

    EDIT: The high beam sensor is a separate piece that sticks off the front. If you're talking about the one on the mirror body itself, that's just the ambient sensor for the AutoDim.

    Well, I guess I'll find out on Saturday.... Hell even I can't get it to work I still like the fact that the whole mirror assembly hangs down lower. Sure makes it a lot easier to adjust and see out of in my truck.

    Well I hope they can add it. I swapped my mirror a while back and have been waiting to have the code added till after I swap out mine to my tow mirrors.
