Dipping Door Mirrors When Reversing

Recommended Posts

GS300SE - 2007 Model

Both door mirrors tilt down when selecting reverse, can you turn this facility off or can you dictate which mirror you want to dip (Left or Right).

Any help would be apprieciated :)

I don't know how to turn off this feature in my car, and there is nothing in the manual, so my guess is you can't. The LS method above doesn't work. Maybe a dealer can do it?

If you turn off the reverse aid from the drop down panel on the right of the steering wheel - looks like a P/// or something iirc.

It turns on/off the equivalent looking green symbol on the dash.

This should disable the auto dropping of the rear view mirrors - but will also disable the parking sensors (if you have them), and I think it might even disable the reverse camera (if you have it)...

Will check myself later...

Hmm. Tested this yesterday evening... and nope. Doesn't disable the dipping of the wing mirrors...

Think it does it on the new IS series though...

Any reason why youd want to disable it altogether anyway though?

IMHO it doesn't dip down enough...
