When I pull into my small garage and park I do not want to lock the doors, just retract the mirrors.

Ah, I see. That makes sense. I assume you've changed the auto-lock settings on your vehicle then. Mine auto-locks after a certain period of time when the doors are all closed and unlocked, which I like because I don't park in a garage.

I bet there is a way to wire in a manual button you can press to retract the mirrors when you park.

You donít actually have to lock doors/arm the alarm for them to retract?

The way this is setup, it triggers off the lock/unlock modes of the truck. So if the truck is on or is in accessary mode, the mirrors are always unfolded.

But you can still manually force it to close by pressing the fold/unfold button.

To answer your first question, when your parked, you can manually fold the mirrors. Then turn off the engine and close door. But once you open the doors, the mirrors will unfold. Not sure why the mirrors will unfold at this point. But once you lock, it folds.

Afaik, there are three modes of operation.

Unlock - unfold
Lock - fold
Accessary/ignition on - manual button will flip mirror condition.

Thanks. One more thing...
If the mirrors are folded in and someone manually unfolds it, will that harm or destroy anything?
Or if the mirror is open and someone manually folds it in, any damage? Does it recover OK?

Racking my brain here...

OK gents, I'm having serious doubts about this kit right now and I need someone to tell me I'm doing something wrong. I disassembled the passenger side mirror completely and I'm stumped on how the new arm (left) sits into the joint of the mirror (old arm mount circled in the middle). I've seen pictures of other kits (KTJO maybe?) and the bracket that the mirror mounts to in their pictures looks different than mine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I don't want the mirrors to fold/unfold on their own as I lock and unlock. Can it be set to full manual mode so I can choose when to fold/unfold ?

Interested in knowing if it can be wired to accomplish this. I'd prefer to just operate the fold/unfold by manually pressing the button on the mirror control.

Yes I believe so. The harness requires 3 wires. Power, lock detect voltage and unlock voltage detect. If you donít use the last two, it should only fold/unfold with the switch.

Is this the CTH kit? Once you remove the round metal retainer clip, spring and washer .. simply screw the new arm and motor it into the base. Youíll no longer use the retainer clip, spring and washer.

Itís just a dc motor. I moved mine back and force with the power off with no issues. As long as your not stopping the motor, it shouldnít burn out.
