There are small yellowish lites that stay on when the headlights are on. They are located on the underside of the rearview mirror. Is this normal, or can they be turned off??? I don't seem to be able to figure it out myself. :confused

just hold in the button to turn on inside light on mirror for about 5seconds maybe longer. it will go off do same thing again and it will turn on again. mine was on for couple months before i figured it out.

The lights can be turned off. What you have to do is on the mirror you have a light symbol, press and hold this buttom until the lights go off. If you want to turn the lights back on just hold the button till they come back on. Hope this helps,
Mike :)

Or maybe the tip should be...

I think should be put in the Tips Thread! :thumbs
Or maybe the tip should be to read the owners manual. :yesnod

Which remindes me. One of my coworkers was constantly asking me how do I... when he had the exact same set of user guides on his desk as I had. I started picking up my book looking up the page he needed in the index and telling him to look at some other page not too far away from the one he needed.

He got a supreme kick telling me I had given him the wrong page and what the right page number was. Meanwhile, in order for him to figure that out, he had to actually read the page I sent him to, then lookup the right page.

I got a threefer, he actually had to crack the book and learn everything on the page I sent him to, as well as everything on the pages in between that and what he wanted. Eventually he stopped asking and just picked up the book. :lol :lol

WOW... this sould make the new owners wanting to come back often...... I'm SHOCKED he wasn't told to use the "search" function.... the time it took to be tell hom to go read his OM could have been spent with the right answer...remind me next time not to ask any questions here from this bunch.....

sorry, David is right and I should qualify my hurried post -- it was intended not to offend the OP but rather to keep the T&T thread neat and clean... i personally don't think T&T should duplicate material in the OM if it's going to remain in its current single-thread form...

David was not right! The question was asked and promptly answered by two different people.

The following posts were about the Tips and Tricks thread. And obliquely about the need to fill it with information, readly available to every owner.

Unfortunatly there was some resonance. Which I feel responsible for having triggered. :head hangs in shame.

Glenn ,

Okay i was wrong.... what do think these car forums are for? obviously you don't get it... if everyone just read the OM or went to T-T section this froum would be DEAD now wouldn't it???

In any case sounds like you covered everything and All SO NO need for this site.....


fyi...THE way sites like grow is to wlecome the new memebers and help them with what ever questions they may have matter how many times that may have been covered ...After ALL they are "new" like you where at one time....


Later for me..much later that is.... you can find me on ford harley truck,prowler,v-rod forums .............

Overreaction and too much time.

David and others,

I don't often write unless I have something truly informational to write. But, I've been going through the board for well over an hour now.

I have read 11 posts in this thread and feel as though I've wasted my time.

It's 11:10 pm. I've worked another 10 hours today and am tired. 60 hours this week. I make it a habit to read all new posts every weekend. Now it takes me 2-3 hours, it seems.

I feel I am wasting time listening to people (who I feel are too sensitive anyway) complaining, and others apologizing for offending, back and forth, back and forth, and it is a waste.

We need a separate forum for people who just want to chat. I came here (stumbled here during a google search) some time ago. Now it seems there is little worthwhile and too much nonsense.

Now I guess I need to apologize for expressing my thoughts??!! :confused :confused

So,
In your opinion, what are these forums for? Are people not supposed to "chat" on this forum? Is it tech information only? I'm a member on several forums and there are thousands of posts on them daily. You wouldn't be able to keep up anywhere else.

Also what's the point about how long you work. I think most people here work everyday, trust me you're not the only one that works long hours.

Do you want the forum to quit talking so you don't have as much reading to do?

Sorry I'm still a little bit confused myself, as I'm new here, but I have never had this much of a problem figuring out the politics of a forum like I have had here.

Missed my point

My point was that a question was asked by a member.
That was answered by 2 people (within 7 or 8 minutes I might add.)
The next 8 or so posts really had nothing to do with the issue and seem pointless to me.
Time is valuable. I'm not complaining about how long I work.
Here we go. Now I'm answering this which is not relevant to the topic.

I see what you are saying about the two different members answering the question. Where I have a problem is when someone comes in and instead of answering the question, they have to be a smart ass and tell them to USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION, or even better yet READ YOUR OWNERS MANUAL. Hell why should anyone here even type anything at all then? Let's all just come here and use the search function, and not talk to each other at all.
I know this isn't relevant to the topic, but your original post wasn't either.

Where's it say we have to stay on the topic? This has been a fun, helpful and spirited forum with very few "flamers" - If the thread bores you, ignore it and jump to the next one.... but don't get your knickers in a knot - life's too short.. (all that work, ya know)... ;)

I think Movin On has to read every sentence in every post ever put on here.

Glenn,
Let me ask you does your co-worker have a SSR? Or are you referring to user guides for work?

Thanks for the tip, I'm a new proud owner of an 04 Slingshot and I did read my manual and just missed it. (That's what happens when you pick up the vehicle at 9:00pm and have to wait for the kids to get to bed to have a free moment to read it. Too fast and too late at night. Thanks!

I have to say after reading some of the above comments I feel a need to remind some of our members that we must try to exercise more patience with our newer members.

I believe that a lot of us are inclined to read too fast or just glance over things. Perhaps we miss some of the important information from time to time. (I have certainly done that myself) Heck, do any of you remember that old saying? "When all else fails read the instructions?" So I ask, is there anyone out there that can honestly say they never had to ask questions or go back and re-read the instruction booklet?

Our forum is here to help everyone, from the newbies to the veterans. Hopefully the newbies will learn to use the search tools as a great method for leanring about their SSRs. However they may be so new that they may not even know there is such a great tool to use.

I believe our forum is a wonderful place for all kinds of SSR enthusiasts. From the novices to those that have great technical expertise. It is also a great place for chatting and meeting members too.

On our forum we should all try to accommodate everyone no matter what lever of expertise they have. So let us all “please” try to practice a little more patience, understanding and above all try to be a little more courteous too ok?
