Automatic Folding Mirrors for 370?

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've had my Zed for about 6 months now, and have noticed occasionally that the mirrors seem as if they are attempting to fold outwards when I start the car. They have never folded in the way, but I was wondering if they should have, and perhaps this was something that I haven't been anywhere of.

 

Can anyone confirm if they should have been? And this is something I need to get fixed?

The folding mirrors is an additional mod which Flyboy ( Martin ) makes the kits for. They are simple to fit and come with a good set of instructions how to fit.

Maybe yours has had this fitted in the past and one of the wires has come off.

If you remove the window switches in the driver door and can see some extra wiring that has been added, then you probably have it.

Guys, the OP is asking about the 370.

 

Not heard of a successful kit yet for the 370 - flyboy has tried though as you will see in post 251 here onwards:

Would be good if someone has heard of an aftermarket fix :thumbs:

I'm a bit confused as to what your saying

Mine do what your saying on start up sometimes

 

I don't understand the folding in bit

Are you saying they don't fold in when you press the button ?

The mirrors on a 370 work on canban signals there

is no kit available for an automatic fold on lock

I don't think it's possible without a rewire to both mirrors and as such is not practical

When I was looking at doing a kit for the 370 I found that the GTR has gone back to the principles of the 350 with a set of relays and timers to control the movement.

That's why its possible on the GTR .

 

On the 370 coded signals are running up and down a 2 wire control loom back and forth to the bcm.

I cant hack this to do a mirror mod :surrender:

 

I took out a bunch of fuses when trying and nearly had a big repair bill on my car. :scare:

Hi guys, has there been any progress on this? I have a 2017 370z Nismo. I always want to good my mirrors, however if I press the button before switching off the car then I can't see if there are cars coming before I open the door. Big bug bear.  My nissan Micra courtesy car had auto folding mirrors. Embarrassing.
