Out of sync folding mirrors

When i fold the mirrors in one folds in and the other stays out. Press it again and the same happens again. Have tried holding one in when the opposite side is in but press the button again and they both do opposite things!

Try removing the mirror fuse for a few mins. I've had this problem twice.

Hey leelines and dominic551,

I have seen this lots of times, their is one thing you can try and do before you end up spending lots of money at a dealership. disconnect the battery and let the car sit for 10 to 15 min. Then touch the negative and positive battery terminals, hold them together for 10 seconds. What is does is resets all the modules and clears out all the saved information.

Now I have only had this work with about 90% of the rovers that have had this problem. Remember if you disconnect the battery you WILL loose all your radio settings, and you'll have to reset your clock.

If this fails to work Land Rover has this crazy procedure wear the techs take off both front door panels and plug and unplug components to get them to reset, that is when it gets expensive.

But i figure its worth a try, if your not sure how to reset your settings look in the owners manuel.

Have a 2006 Range Rover . Someone folded a mirror back while it was in a parking lot and my mirrors were folding and unfolding out of sync. Tried to remove fuses for 30 seconds and replace them-no success!
Removed negative battery cable for 30 seconds then re-attached it and it solved the problem.

P.S. I'm a woman and accomplished the battery detach and re-attach in about 5 minutes, so it MUST be easy. :)

2007 passenger folding mirror will not work


{: ) Have someone control the power fold buttons, while you check closely the passenger mirror. If you can feel or hear even a faint hum of the motor while commanded, try giving it a little help, but don't force it if you think it doesn't have enough power to extend or retract itself. The motor could be really stuck or inoperative.
Sometimes when the mirror has been accidentally or manually folded, it needs to be reset by just pressing on the fold buttons a few rounds and let the mirrors fold by itself. Like an exercise.
If you hear the humming noise whenever the fold buttons are pressed, we can assume that the circuit on that side is ok since it is responding electrically, and that a jammed or stuck mechanism is preventing it to move.
If you don't feel or hear any humming, as in totally no sign of response, then there will be additional considerations before deciding to go for a replacement mirror. You will need to confirm if the fault is on the wirings, a door module, or the mirror motor itself. A scan tool test may be recommended for effective diagnosis.
The power fold mirror can be serviced as an assembly. So, goodluck.

How do i set my wing mirrors


if you wish to "set" the seat and outside mirror, then ignition key to ON, no seatbelt, transmission in "P", no breaks. press SET at the door panel, move the seat and/or mirror to your position, then press "1" or "2", according to the key color you use ( 1 with the black key, 2 with the gray key).

Wing mirrors on 06 plate Golf TDi


Has it ocurred to you that your wing mirrors are not the electrically folding type, most are not. The switch on the drivers arm rest for adjusting the mirrrors will have a separate position for folding if yours fold. The resistance to fold by hand is very stiff as you have to overcome the spring tension, even when folded by hand they do not fold as flat as you might think.
I purchased a 2006 Golf 5 GT Tdi last year it had £5000 worth of factory fitted options but did not have electrically folding door mirrors - hope this helps.

Mirrors will not fold in.


It is a stuck motor. Water gives rust inside housing. Remove mirror and clean motor and components. This is a well known error for H2 mirrors.
