Well, I see that your question has been viewed 63 times and no one has responded. For one, I have never heard of the outside mirrors having this function. My 99 996 does not do this, but your car may be newer and have this function. It would help to have your year, model and other information. Have you checked the owners manual? Perhaps a fuse? Does the mirror function at all, move up and down, in and out?

If you have the self-dimming option mirrors then it could be several things...

Make sure the mirror is centered within the adjustment range. That is... sometimes people can manually bump the mirror in one direction or the other (usually while washing the car) and then the mirror ends up at one end of it's travel. Use the adjustment controls to see that you can adjust it in all directions smoothly and completely. If you can then perhaps the dimming issue is resolved.

If you can not adjust the mirror at all - check fuses.

If you can only adjust it in one or two directions then manually re-center the mirror - and try again.
