Whats the doo-hickie between the rear view mirror and windshield?
Just noticed it the other day. It's kind of a 2" by 2" by 1" high box that mounts to the bottom of the bracket that mount the rear view mirror to the windshield. It has a button on the top drivers side. The owners manual talks about a button on the bottom of the mirror to disable the electrochromatic dimming of the mirror. I have the electrochromatic mirror, but no button on it, so I had assumed that the one on the box replaced the one on the mirror, but pressing the button has no effect on whether or not the mirror dims. Someone on another forum thought it may have something to do with the compass, but .... I reset the compass via the in-dash message center. I've came to the conclusion that it has to be the "lets add a non-functional button and drive them bonkers" modification.
Any ideas folks (other than by pressing it, it give you 200+ HP, or increases your towing capacity)?
Thanx is advance for helping relieve this old-timers confusion.
