In Topic: Anyone Retrofitted Power Fold Mirrors?

21 November 2014 - 08:58 AM

Thanks for your suggestions guys. I installed the mirrors and the window switch you suggested and everything is now working fine.


Just some notes,


* The mirrors i mentioned above are in fact powerfold. One of them is -LF and i don't recall the other.

* They did have 9 wires, so i guess that could be an indication that they fold.

* LHD mirror glasses have different zoom to the ones used in RHD cars. I had to replace the glasses with my existing ones.


I now need just the UCDS adaptor to complete this mod.


Did i read correctly on their website, that their software charges you €10 each time you apply some of the main operations? Also, i believe they no longer sell them, until they receive the new chips. Is that right?

Thanks for your responses guys.


My window switch has three pins too, so i'm guessing it's just a matter of its firmware. Internally it seems like a remote and there isn't anything obvious missing, or any blank spots that would give it the powerfold function.


I'll be adding the missing wire today as i just received the needed Dupont terminals... I'll also order the switch so i can test once it arrives.


If anyone closer to Manchester has a UCDS adapter it would be great, alternatively, i'll eventually bug Terry for that.

Have i mentioned the car is a LHD? I did some more digging today and i came across the following:


There is no plug hidden anywhere that would power the mirrors switch.

There is no wire going to DDM (black) location 17

There is no wire on location 8 on the mirror plug and the DDM (blue) location 14

There is no relay at the back seats. I'm not sure if there should be one, but i read that it's needed and is located under the carpet at the rear door. Is this right?


It's probably going to be a bit harder than i thought. I do like the idea, of getting the window switch, but i'd firstly make sure mine doesn't work.


Its strange tho that Mcat shows some switches at around £120 whereas the one you suggested is only £50, even though it states power fold. Ford works in mysterious ways...


I take it the UCDS is different to the modified ELM right?

Yes, i've got all 4 windows with one-touch up and down. Since it's a fully populated switch, i was hoping it would act as powerfold too.


I have the correct modules (PDM and DDM?) and i only miss the wire between them and the mirror. I also miss the wires that go to the fold switch.


Ideally, i would like to have them folding with the switch, but also working with lock/unlock as I can currently open and close all windows and sunroof with the remote.

Guys, I finally came across some mirrors that i'm 99% sure are powerfold. They are not TF but LF so I dismandled them and noticed two wires going to the place where the folding mechanism is. They also have 9 wires attached to them, so i'm feeling confident.


I've enabled puddle and powerfold and when plugged in, puddle worked fine. I've got the 4 window switch and i was hoping it would also fold, but obviously it didn't.


I purchased the simple switch, without the alarm bit. After i took the door card out, i couldn't find a wire that would plug to it. Could it be behind the large metal door card?


1. Any ideas where to look for it, or how to wire it? It has 3 pins and one is the signal which is described on the first posts, but i still need the other two.

2. I also tried to take apart the window mechanism hoping that i could somehow convert it to a powerfold switch as in RS, but my electronics skills are not that great and i couldn't see how to do it.


any ideas welcome
