Two ways to cancel -

1. Green button on left of mirror
2. Pull left stalk towards driver

I like mine. :)

i have pushed the green button on the mirror several times and it still does not turn it off...... when i am driving through construction with all the orange barrels and flashing lights the high beams turns on and off...on and off.........and then sometimes it doesnt detect some vehicles right in front of me and i blind them...i would rather just turn it off...im almost to the point of cutting the wires! and yes i have cleaned the light sensor.

The button isn't green...it says Auto and has a high beam symbol on it...the light next to it is green. When the green light is off, the system is off.

Sounds like you have the wrong mirror installed...the one with the dot just turns off the auto-dimming mirror. Mine doesn't have the dot button.

Your mirror should look like this:



You may want to test out the system during the daytime using the demo steps listed, might help determine if something is up.

Headlamps - Intellibeam

The intellibeam system operates the high beam headlamps ON and OFF automatically when certain conditions are met and the system is activated.
The system consists of a digital light sensor that is located in a separate module that is mounted to the back of the inside rearview mirror.
The digital sensor detects light, not vehicle movement. The sensor analyzes light color, intensity, and movement.
The intellibeam system will turn OFF the high beam headlamps when other vehicles headlamps or taillights are detected by the digital sensor.
Intellibeam can be deactivated when the headlamp dimmer switch is moved from the neutral position to the high beam or flash to pass (FTP) positions.
When the headlamp dimmer switch is returned to the neutral position, intellibeam will be enabled.

Intellibeam modulates the high beam headlamps by gradually fading the high beam headlamps ON or OFF.
Intellibeam is designed to ignore non-vehicular light sources.
However, the system may dim the high beams if it detects lighting or lighting reflections similar in color and intensity to vehicle lighting.
When this occurs, intellibeam will dim the high beams until the light or reflection source is no longer detected.

Important: Intellibeam may not operate properly if any of the following conditions exist:

The other vehicles lamps are undetectable due to dirt, snow, road spray, smoke, fog, or any other airborne conditions.
The vehicle windshield is covered with ice, dirt, snow, haze, or the intellibeam digital light sensor is obstructed.
The vehicle ride height is such that the front of the vehicle is pointed upward causing the intellibeam light sensor to be aimed high.
The vehicle is being driven on winding or hilly road conditions which would make any on coming vehicle headlamps undetectable by the intellibeam.
Cleaning the intellibeam digital light sensor should be done periodically to ensure system performance. To clean the sensor, use glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
Apply the glass cleaner to a soft cloth and gently wipe the light sensor lens. Do not apply the glass cleaner directly to the light sensor lens.

Important: The intellibeam system operates when the following conditions are met:

The headlamp switch is in the AUTO position.
The headlamp dimmer switch must be in the neutral position.
Intellibeam has been turned ON by pushing the AUTO button located on the face of the rearview mirror.
Outside conditions must be dark.
Intellibeam will only function when the vehicle is in DRIVE and moving.
Speed Thresholds:
Accelerating: As the vehicle is accelerating, intellibeam will gradually apply the high beams when vehicle speed reaches 20 mph (32 km/hr) or greater.
Full high beam intensity will not occur until the vehicle has achieved a speed of 25 mph (40 km/hr) or greater.

Decelerating: As the vehicle is decelerating, intellibeam will fade the high beams down until they are completely OFF at or below 15 mph (24 km/hr).
Important: The high beam indicator located on the instrument panel cluster (IPC) will turn ON as soon as the high beams are energized even thought full intensity has not been achieved.
The high beam indicator will not turn OFF until the high beams have faded completely OFF.

Important: Enabling and disabling the intellibeam system can be achieved by performing the following:

Intellibeam is automatically disabled each time the vehicle is started (FOR CERTAIN MODEL YEARS ONLY, other years it remembers the last state it was in).
To disable intellibeam after the system has been enabled, press the intellibeam AUTO button on the rearview mirror for 3 seconds and releasing it after the green
LED intellibeam status indicator on the left side of the rearview mirror flashes 2 times. When this is done, the intellibeam system will not be active until the system is manually turned ON.
Intellibeam is enabled by pressing and releasing the intellibeam AUTO button located on the rearview mirror after the vehicle has been started.
The green LED intellibeam status indicator located on the left side of the rearview mirror will flash 1 time to indicate the system has been turned ON.

Intellibeam Demonstration Mode

The intellibeam demonstration mode allows the technician to verify that the intellibeam system components are operating correctly.
Perform the intellibeam demonstration mode under daylight conditions only. The following steps detail how to enter the intellibeam demonstration mode.

Turn OFF the ignition.
While turning the ignition to the ON position, push and hold the intellibeam AUTO button located on the inside rearview mirror (ISRVM) for approximately 8 seconds after the ignition is turned ON.
The high beam indicator located on the instrument panel cluster (IPC) will illuminate indicating the demonstration mode is enabled.
The demonstration mode will run for approximately 45 seconds.

The following actions will take place during the demonstration mode:
High Beam Fading - During this mode the high beams will fade from high to low 3 times.
The high beam indicator located on the IPC will turn ON as soon as the high beams are energized even thought full intensity has not been achieved.
The high beam indicator will not turn OFF until the high beams have faded completely OFF.

Intellibeam Light Sensor Status - During this mode, the intellibeam light sensor can be checked by covering the light sensor with a dark cloth.
Once the light sensor if fully covered, the green LED intellibeam status indicator located on the left side of the ISRVM will turn OFF.
When the light sensor is uncovered, the intellibeam status indicator will turn ON. This check will confirm that the intellibeam light sensor is operating correctly.

Intellibeam Enable/Disable Status - Intellibeam can indicate if the system is enabled or disabled.
During the intellibeam light sensor check in step 2 above, if intellibeam is disabled, the green LED intellibeam status indicator will flash repeatedly once the light sensor is covered.
Once the light sensor is uncovered, the green LED intellibeam status indicator will turn ON.

That power button at the end is for your intellibeam.

05 mirror is different than 06+

We also don't have a pass side air bag and seatbelt indicator on our overhead dome light.
