08 Mirrors w/Power Fold/Extend

Working on them now to make them retro-functional. Will keep you posted how that turns out.

They are not cheap though! A very nice feature though when parking.

My goals:

Allow to power fold and retract when ignition is turned off automatically
Allow either function manually on demand.

At this time I am leaning towards using extrenal multi function remote switch (that can be mounted on the steering wheel) to control those functions including the Heat if a truck not equiped originally.

Thoughts? Idea?

Update:

Switch from FORD is very unique and requires a specila 10 pin plug and its useless. I figured all the wires to make it extend and fold. Its pretty sweet.

It will need a relay system or a double polarity switch to achieve both functions.

Found an easy way to wire the mirrors to fold and extend. I have the switches to control and the wiring diagram.

The kit is now available on the site:
