How To - Auto Mirror Fold Mod


Recommended Posts

Hey all, you may remember the ever popular auto mirror folding mod, this is a little module that Flyboy and i used to sell, but demand has been non existent for a long long time now so im releasing details on how to do this yourself! This is a copy + paste of the guide i wrote to install these things :)

 

Tools:

Philips head screwdriver

Pliers

Wire Crimpers

Wire Strippers

 

You also need to purchase a universal Mirror Fold module from eBay, such as this one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223770257610

If this link dies, try this search term eBay Search

 

Lastly, you'll need a bunch of red scotch loc connectors, these are also available on eBay.

 

Now for the magic, you need this colour coded wiring guide first as a reference.

Pull the door card off its plastic clips around the edges and then once all released lift upwards to remove the lip from where the window glass rolls down. Set aside the door card for now.

Wiring in the Module

The module has wires as described on the table included in at the top of this guide, connect them as described in the table, or follow the info below.

NOTE: The photos shown are taken with a DE car, if you have a RevUp or a HR, make note to READ the instructions and refer to the tables at the top for correct colours.

 

RED WIRE:

Get the red wire from the module and then locate the thick white wire from the larger plug. Splice these two together with the scotch loc connector.

BLACK WIRE:

Get the black wire from the module and then locate the thick black wire from the smaller plug. Splice these two together with the scotch loc connector.

YELLOW WIRE:

Get the yellow wire from the module and then locate the Light Green (DE) or Green & Black (RevUp & HR) wire from the smaller plug. Splice these two together with the scotch loc connector

GREY & ORANGE WIRES:

Find the Grey Wire (DE) or White & Green Wire (RevUp & HR) and snip this part way down.

Locate the Grey wire from the module and connect this to the side of the wire going to the plug. 

Locate the Orange wire from the module and connect this to the side of the wire going to the car.

WHITE & BROWN WIRES:

Find the Purple (DE) or White & Red Wire (RevUp & HR) and snip this part way down.

Locate the White wire from the module and connect this to the side of the wire going to the plug. 

Locate the Brown wire from the module and connect this to the side of the wire going to the car.

BLUE WIRE:

This is the only tricky one. You need to remove your door speaker and locate the wiring loom tucked up inside of it.

Peel back some of the plastic loom covering and locate the purple wire as shown.

Connect the Blue wire from the module to this purple one using the included scotch loc connector.

I would advise routing it through this little paper grommet shown here below

Testing

 Tuck the module behind this thick conduit of wire and stick it to the door with the included sticky pad. This keeps the module safe and stops it vibrating in the door. Just make sure the connector isn’t under any pressure as this can make it come disconnected.

Re-assemble the door card and try your mirror switch. Make sure the mirrors fold in and out according to the switch.

Next, shut the door and press Lock on the key fob and ensure the mirrors fold in. Press unlock and make sure they fold out again once you turn the car on.

If it all works as expected, re-assemble everything tidily and enjoy your new mod.

 

NB: If once connected your mirror switch works backwards ("Open" on the switch closes the mirrors), simply reverse the Grey and White module wires so they’re connected like this.

If you have any issues, double check your wire crimps were done properly. Listen for the relay clicking in the module when you lock and unlock the doors, this is a good indication of whether power is being supplied to the unit and its receiving the lock pulse.

 

Also refer to the table at the top of this page and identify which wire colour does which function and reference this with the plug drawings just below the table. This should help you troubleshoot if something isn’t working.
