Kia Soul EV (PS EV) 2015-2020 Service Manual / Body Electrical System / Electro Chromic Inside Rear View Mirror / Description and Operation

Description
The Electro Chromatic inside rear view Mirror (ECM) is intended to dim the reflecting light in the rear view mirror. The forward facing sensor detects the brightness of the surroundings while the rearward looking sensor detects the intensity of the light from the rear. The intensity of the light from the rear sensor is used by the mirror to adjust the level of shading ranging from 7% to 85%. When the reverse gear is engaged, it stops functioning.

The forward facing sensor sees if the brightness of the surroundings is low enough for the mirror to operate its function.
2.
The rearward looking sensor detects glaring of the reflecting light from a vehicle behind.

The ECM is darkened to the level as determined by the rearward looking sensor. When the glaring is no longer detected, the mirror stops functioning.
