auto dim mirror broken

my auto dim mirror has been broken since november. dealer installed new mirror, but that did not fix the problem. the light on the mirror blinks on and off. dealer says that they need to get some sort of flash update from chrysler. apparently i am one of four people in the country with this problem (which i find hard to believe...although i have not seen any threads about this so maybe its true). chrysler does not seem to be in a rush about this...i have been waiting for update for two months now. what should i do? call chrysler directly?

Re: auto dim mirror broken

Considering almost everyone's auto dimming mirror works, why do you need a "special" update. Why can't they just flash the main software program of the car, which in theory should get it to work again, no? Kind of like a reboot/reprogram

Re: auto dim mirror broken

azcatz2 I don't know how much I am going to be able to help, but my Mom had the exact same issue with her 08 JGC, and I'm the one that took it to the shop to get fixed. You are talking about the little square (if its still the same) green light keeps on blinking on your rear view mirror. You don't need a new rear view mirror as I am sure you figured out. I don't know exactly what the dealer did, but they had to aim the lights or some type of sensors inside the Jeep to fix the blinking light. Sorry I know this is VERY vague but I hope this helps you out somehow. Maybe the WK2 is different, but I'm not sure...
