Ok I'm a little stumped and can't understand why exactly.
Maybe someone can shed a little more light on the subject. I have a couple month old 2011 Laramie. I just had the dealer swap out the chrome TTM for some black ones. For some reason it seems like the only feature missing so far is the reverse tilt option. I use to have it with the chrome mirrors and now it does not seem to work.
What I do not understand is what makes the mirrors tilt. I would have never guessed it would have been extra hardware pieces in the chrome mirror. I figured it would have been more software controlled, through the computer? Does anyone have more info on this before I call the dealership?

Thanks

Just a thought; did you go into your evic settings and make sure that the auto tilt in reverse is still set?

yep, I double and triple checked it. I even selected and unselected it a couple times thinking something might just be hung up in the software.

Is there truly something physicaly different about the chrome mirrors then the black mirrors?

I figured you probably had but thought I would just get the question out of the way as I knew it would be asked.

As far as if the mirrors are different; I do not know about that. I would call the dealer and ask.

I notice you have a 2011 ST. Does it have black tow mirrors on it? Do you also have the reverse tilt option?

tilt as in being able to move them with the controls on the driverside door??

my bighorn has that, as far as i know the only difference was the chrome on the outside of them.

I am sure that he is talking about when you put the vehicle in reverse, the mirror automatically tilts downward.

I tried to swap out my chrome ones as well with some black ones, same thing happened. The black ones do not have the tilt down fuction. I would assume it is something in the mirror that is doing it. I bet it has an extra position sensor to know where to go down to and where to return to. So, now I am just going to paint the chrome ones.
