Wing mirrors stopped working

Recommended Posts

The wing mirrors have stopped working on my car.  They were working perfectly up until this morning.  I have made sure that the switch is in the 'auto' position and I have tried it with the L and R switches engaged and also not engaged but still they won't fold when the doors are locked.  Is there anything else that I might have accidentally touched that would stop them from folding?

You have to leave the mirror command switch on R or L.

Are you using the same key, some of the memory functions are stored to the key. If you use a different key, some of the things that normally work, may not. Just a thought.

Tried everything this morning but they still won't fold on locking.  The switch is set to auto and I have tried the 'L' and 'R' switched on and have also tried it with them off, i.e. neutral but, still not working. 

The mirrors do fold in when I do it  with the manual button

Methinks summat is busted.

Thanks for this suggestion Adrian but I never use the key fob to lock or unlock my car. I only ever use the smart entry/exit.

Somethings not right.

This particular car seems to have a lot of electrical gremlins. 

Id be inclined to send it back tbh - first parking sensors and now this - me thinks someone's been messing with the electrics.

Sounds like a trip to the dealer, there is nothing related in the “Customisation” options,do you still have warranty on the car?

Yep the car is still under the dealers warranty.  I have informed them so will be hoping to get it sorted at the same time as the parking sensors.

It's very very odd. Reason I say that is these issues are extremely rare and shouldn't be happening at all. Parking sensors especially are simple things. Wing mirrors also. 

Did you buy from a Lexus dealer?

Figured out why the wing mirrors won’t fold in....It because they’re door mirrors ...
