2001 Volvo S60 - Mirror issue

inside rearview mirror has gone darl

What the heck is “darl” ??

Check the position of night driving adjustment lever.

If the OP’s mirror is one that darkens (or, “darlens” :wink:) electronically, it is entirely possible that it has stopped functioning after 18 years. In any event, perhaps the OP can clarify if his mirror is a “conventional” one that has a manual adjustment, or if it is an electronic one.

And if it’s an electronic one, it can be manually turned off with a button, usually on the underside of the mirror.

Get a new one. Even if it is self darkening type junk yards near me sell them for about $30. Problem solved, you are welcome.
