Does anyone know how to fold the power mirrors via the key remote as in the videos below?

 

 

 

The only guide I can find on FordWiki is for the 2003 Mondeo

Really interested in this mod myself sort of annoys me that a zetec S model does not have electric folding mirrors and electric rear windows as standard. Clubber i don't know how it works sorry mate but do you know if ST electric mirrors will work on a zetec s or any mods how to do it?

ST electric mirrors? Do you mean the normal electric wing mirrors? They should work no problem. 

 

Remember, the ST doesn't have power fold or puddle lights. It was never an option.

surely its just the power fold mirrors with the switch connected to central locking (like on all new mercedes).

you would have to fit the power fold mirrors first and find a locations for the switch not sure where its fitted when purchased as an option if thats even possible. then add a relay switch which takes over and connects to the central locking system...

it kind of sounds straight forward in my head but i bet its an absolute pain in the back.

i believe the power fold mirrors are not cheap either!!

I've done the powerfold mirrors with puddle lamps but oprated by a switch.

I fitted these to my st3 and took me about 40 mins to complete :)

All I needed was the mirrors and the switch from the Mk2 RS and then add just add the one wire from the drivers mirror to the DDM :)

To find out if you can do the same you need to remove the door tweeter covers to reveal the mirror connection plug, on the passenger side you have to have 8 wires in the main door loom going to the grey plug that connects to the mirror

On the drivers side you have to have 7 wires going to the plug as you add the 8th and connect it to the DDM

Where do you exactly connect the wire to? Can you take some pictures of yours please? I was told you have to add a wire from the new switch to the DDM too

You only have to add a wire to the switch if your going to use the duel switch that shares the alarm sensors

I can get some pics for you at the weekend if that's ok

their is two ways to wire this, one is  as what tezza says, one wire from mk3 type adjusting switch & the other which me & tezza originally did on mine , which is 3 wires ,using the combi alarm sensor delete & powerfolding switch.obviously tezza's way would be way better as 1.the switch is uk spec as found on mk3 focus & 2. only one wire to connect.

3 wires?

 

I thought it is 1 wire from mirror to blue plug on DDM and 1 wire from switch to black plug on DDM

 

Where does the 3rd wire go to?
