How did you disable the dimming side mirrors? I searched this forum, "Google", and the owners manual to find nothing on this feature.
Required popping out the mirror and pulling the plug. Basically, tilt the mirror all the way in, then grab the outer edge of the mirror and gently pull out. The mirror will pop off the connector, which is in the middle. Then disconnect the plug. I think it was purple? I taped over the end and popped the mirror back on.
