Pilot light on Auto Dimming Mirror?

I've a 2015 MDX 2WD no extra packages. Suddenly during a long road trip it seemed like something amiss in the auto-dimming mirror. It seemed like there was a pilot light and it no longer appeared to be lit (even when there were cars behind me).

There are two holes just below the mirror. One is sensor and I still believe the other is a pilot light. We checked the user's manual and it says to the effect of "light glows when the feature is activated".

I took it to the only dealer in my hometown and service adviser is vouching that there is no such pilot light there. He also says he checked two other 2015 and also called Acura Client Relations and even them say there is no pilot light.

1. What does the user manual refer to?
2. Do any of you owners have observed a light coming on (possible on the left of the two)?

I have 2015 MDX Adv+Ent. I struggled with the same issue. The manual refers to the light but I have NEVER seen it on. That being said I know the rear and side mirrors do dim when they are supposed to.

Not sure if it is too late to reply this post, on my 15 MDX Tech, those 2 holes you referring, right one is sensor, left one is indicator light, and it is supposed to be light up in green.
