How Do Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirrors Work?

Our team at DCH Acura of Temecula wants you to be informed about the latest available safety features offered with today's vehicles. We want your driving experience to be as safe as possible for you and your passengers.

While auto-dimming rearview mirrors don't sound like a crucial auto safety feature, they can be of great benefit when driving at night. The impact of bright headlights in your rearview mirror at night can be devastating for your vision.

These mirrors fight intense glare by darkening themselves using a process called electrochromism. Ambient light sensors, that detect intense light from following vehicles, are integrated with microprocessors to send a charge through electrochromic gel when such light is detected. The darker gel restricts the amount of light to protect your eyes.
