Being informed about the way in which your vehicle operates makes you a better car owner which is why our team of experts here at Jefferson Auto of Washington, PA wanted to make sure you know how a lesser-known car part operates.

Self-dimming rearview mirrors are becoming more common in many different makes and models. Their goal is to reduce the glare of cars behind you at night. But how exactly do they work? Rearview mirrors that have this technology have embedded sensors that seek out light. When light from another car is detected, the sensor emits a charge through a gel in the mirror. This gel then dims the mirror making it far easier to see even when being followed by vehicles with extremely bright LED lights.
