Yep, both of my mirrors unfold when I unlock the vehicle or press the button on the new mirror switch.

The issue of the fuse blowing only occurs when I physically connect the blue wire off the ECU to the other blue wire off the connector (For lock detection). As soon as I connect the blue wires and turn on power to my vehicle the fuse blows. Locking or unlocking the vehicle isnít the cause of the fuse blowing.

So right now I donít have the blue wire off the ECU hooked up at all because thatís what immediately trips my ACC fuse. Iím able to fold the mirrors manually with the switch, and unfold them by unlocking the vehicle or manually with the switch.

My vehicle locks and unlocks like normal, but since I donít have the blue wire hooked up, my mirrors donít fold when locked.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Thanks!
Jake

Makes sense. The fact that your doors still lock/unlock is a good sign. At this point Iím starting to think thereís something wrong with the module or harness.

Perhaps contact sevag on his fb page and ask for both a new harness and module. One of those might be bad.

Installation looks clean! I am tempted too lol
Also noticed you have a pro as well but got sequential indicators on your side mirrors. I thought US models didnt come with them?

Hey @daytonaviolet , Cartrimhome has posted your Rev 1 of the instructions. Isn't Rev 3 the latest?

I'm getting this kit for XMas, and will be installing it with simple wiring modifications so that the mirrors will fold when the truck is turned off, and unfold when the key gets to the ACC position or higher.

I read a few posts where members have stated the driver side appears noticably slower.


Have there been any further observations about the driver side motors?

I just installed my kit this weekend (2018 Limited). I noticed that the drivers side a hair slower than the passenger side. Checked all connections 3x and everything is solid. Emailed CTH to see if there is a solution or maybe they had a batch of defective controllers or motors?

I'd be curious to swap the left and right wires on the controller to see if the problem moves to the passenger side, which would indicate a controller issue. But I doubt this will be the case, because the controller would only be able to do that with a resistor (to lower the voltage to the driver's side). Unless the controller has a resistor to try to equalize the ending moment (one side may have a shorter distance to travel than the other), it is just supplying votage to the motors.

I am experiencing the same issue out of the box. Triple checked all of the wiring and see nothing wrong. Please let us know what CTH says...

I may have to give this a shot next weekend.

The other thing I would check is the voltage across the pair of wires for each mirror while it's moving...to see if the voltage is the same on both sides of the vehicle.
