Vanity mirror light won't turn off

Recommended Posts

I just noticed that the passenger side vanity mirror light in the sun visor doesn't turn off when the lid is closed. The driver's side light turns off when the lid is about halfway down, but the passenger side light does not (and I can see light shining through the edges of the lid when fully closed). Does anybody know if there is some easy fix for this (some internal switch that I could look for/fix?)?

I would like to take the mirror/light assembly out to look at (to see if there is a switch I can fix), but I'm concerned that I may break it if I try to pop it out (I did read the DIY on removing the airbag warning decals, but it was not explicit on how to remove the light assembly). What is the proper way to remove the light/mirror assembly without breaking it? I use a battery maintainer, so I think I'm protected against this light draining the battery (and the charging light on the maintainer does go out after a few hours of being plugged in).

It is not hard to do. Pull the sun visor out of the car, use a "butter knife" flat rounded blade kinfe to pull mirror out. You can get to the lights that way. If you need to remove the light assembly, use the same type of knife to pry it out of the visor.

It could be that one of the springs is bent badly and keeping the contact on. Should not be hard to "undo". The design is not gret on the visors, the springs tend to break easily.
