SOURCE: Hummer H2 Power folding mirror won't fold

The power folding function of your exterior mirrors on your '04 H2 depends on a plastic gear to collapse those mirrors at the touch of a button. That plastic gear strips very easily. The service adviser at our Hummer dealership said that problem was rectified in later model years with a redesign of of the collapsing mechanism of those mirrors.

I don't mind manually folding our mirrors, and I was afraid to ask about the cost of the parts required to solve the issue. The service guy didn't volunteer the cost of the fix. Not typically covered by aftermarket extended service/warranty plans.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Disconnect the wires / cables connecting the mirror to the controller and then you can remove the bolts holding the mirror onto the door and it'll just pop out...I've never tried to take apart the mirror itself because the clips holding the backing in the housing seem to break easily

How do the side mirrors fold in on an unidentified vehicle?


We have a lot of queries about unidentified vehicles and other unidentified objects, which always makes answering very difficult.

In your case, push the mirror backwards towards the window. If it is a moveable one, rather than a fixed mirror, it will move under a small amount of force.

How d I swith passenger side mirror on a power mirror on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited edition


no symptoms posted (broke glass or ???) can we be on same page?
"how do I switch," verb switch , the mirror as switches inside, too.

please say what that word means. switch and the failure.
1: remove and replace with new.
2: move right to left and left to right side.

why would you do that #2
fold away mirrors/ Export only (this is usa forum so..)
these,NASA grade mirrors are very complex... not just glass and plastic. heaters ,motors, memory , etc.

the FSM cover all tests for the mirror, including scan data.

ill quote the FSM now , 8 steps (just 1 fail,not heat, not memory failure or fold failure)
ONE MIRROR INOPERATIVE
(1) If the one inoperative mirror is on the passenger
side, go to Step 2. If the one inoperative mirror is
on the driver side, go to Step 3.
(2) Check if the passenger front door will lock and
unlock using the power lock switch on the driver side
front door. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, go to Step 6.
(3) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable. Remove the trim panel from the front door.
Disconnect the 12-way mirror wire harness connector
from the door wire harness connector.
(4) Using two jumper wires, test the mirror as
shown in the Mirror Test chart (Fig. 2). If the mirror
tests OK, go to Step 5. If the mirror does not test
OK, replace the faulty mirror.
(5) Disconnect the 12-way door wire harness connector
from the door module connector receptacle.
Check all of the circuits of the door wire harness
between the connector for the mirror and the connector
for the door module for opens or shorts. If all of
the circuits are OK, replace the faulty door module.
If any of the circuits are not OK, repair the open or
shorted circuit(s) as required.
(6) Use a DRB scan tool and the proper Diagnostic
Procedures manual to test and repair the faulty Programmable
Communications Interface (PCI) data bus
communication between the two door modules.

pull door skins
unplug motor conn.

How to replace 04 ranger mirror switch


Does the other side mirror work?

If the other side mirror adjusts with the switch, then it could be an issue with the mirror which isn't working.
Usually a mirror has two motors, one for up/down and another for left/right. If the mirror works in one direction and not in the other, yet the mirror on the other side works in all directions, then the issue is not the switch, but the mirror.

Unless none of that is relevant and you are talking about the fold function.

If neither mirror folds when you depress the fold button, then you need to check or change the switch as the most likely cause of the issue.
If you can provide me with a picture of the switch, then I can try to advise on how to remove and replace it.

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.

Hello, yes the glass can be replaced. you will need to see your local GM dealer for the glass. real simple to replace.





  • Carefully push the outside rearview mirror face on the inner edge, near the front door window glass, to allow access.
  • Insert a large flat-bladed screwdriver in the slot between mirror lens and the mounting base.
  • Grasp the mirror face firmly and pull it from the mirror body.
  • Remove the outside rearview mirror case from the outside rearview mirror housing and disconnect the heater wire, if equipped.






  • Using the palm of your gloved hand, press firmly on the center of the glass until the case seats onto the motor.
  • The mirror will make a snapping noise when properly seated.
  • Inspect the mirror for proper operation.

    Check the next procedure to Power Mirrors...

    Diagnosis & Testing

    The exterior mirror control switch receives power through circuit SBP12 (GN/RD) and ground through circuit GD143 (BK/VT). The exterior mirror control switch uses circuit CPM23 (GY) as the common circuit for both exterior mirror up/down and right/left movement.
    1. Possible Causes:
      Fuse 12 (7.5A) (SJB) An open in circuits CPM23 (GY), SBP12 (GN/RD) or GD143 (BK/VT A short to ground in circuit CPM23 (GY) A short to voltage in circuit CPM23 (GY) Exterior mirror control switch.
    2. Checking the voltage at the mirror switch:
      Key in OFF position. Disconnect: Exterior Mirror Control Switch C527. Key in ON position. Measure the voltage between ground and exterior mirror control switch C527-1, circuit SBP12 (GN/RD). Voltage should be greater than 10 volts.
    3. If voltage is greater than 10 volts, check that fuse 12 (7.5A) is OK. If OK, REPAIR circuit SBP12 (GN/RD) for an open.

    Exterior Mirror Motor Synchronization

    NOTE This procedure must be performed any time the power folding mirrors are manually folded in or out, or if the position of the mirror case has been moved without using the mirror control switch.
    NOTE If the power folding mirrors are folded or unfolded continuously (6 to 10 cycles), the power lockout feature will disable the system for 2 minutes to prevent damage to the power fold motors. After 2 minutes have elapsed, normal operation will resume.
    1. Set the mirror control switch to the CENTER position.
    2. Use the mirror control switch (press rearward) to automatically cycle the power folding mirrors in and out 4 times.
    3. When an audible popping sound is heard, the power folding mirror motors are synchronized.
      NOTE It may be necessary to cycle the power folding mirrors in or out up to 4 times before they are synchronized.

    2003 gmc mirrors do not fold in


    The power mirrors are controlled by a module (computer) DDM - drivers door module an the PDM - passenger door module .
    Folding Mirror System
    Folding Mirror System Controls
    The folding mirror system requires signals from 2 separate switches. The mirror select switch must be in the neutral/fold position and the mirror direction switch must be activated to the left/extend or right/retract positions. Both switches are integrated into the DDM and provide direct signals.
    Folding Mirror System Operation
    Upon receipt of the required switch inputs the DDM will supply battery voltage and ground to the mirror fold motor control circuits to perform the requested extend or retract function. The DDM will also send a class 2 message to the PDM indicating the requested function. The PDM will supply battery voltage and ground to the mirror fold motor control circuits to perform the requested extend or retract function.

    Power Mirror System
    Power Mirror System Components
    The power mirror system consists of the following components:
    • The driver door module--Class 2 module with integrated switches and requires programming when replaced
    • The passenger door module--Class 2 module with integrated switches, requires programming when replaced and also contains the RFA receiver
    • The power mirror direction switch--Integrated into DDM and is a 4-position momentary switch that provides a signal input to the DDM for up, down, left/extend and right/retract with a mirror switch activation
    • The mirror select switch--Integrated into DDM and is a 3-position switch that allows the operator to select the left or right mirror and also a neutral/fold position
    • The left outside power mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
    • The right outside power mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
    • The body control module--Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced, serves as the power mode master and is the main message handler
    • The DDM 10A fuse--Located in the I/P fuse block and is hot at all times
    • The PDM 10A fuse--Located in the I/P fuse block and is hot at all times
    • The memory switch, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied power by the DDM and provides a voltage signal to the DDM upon a switch activation
    • The horizontal and vertical position sensors, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied a 5-volt and low reference by the DDM/PDM and provide a variable voltage signal to the DDM/PDM that is proportional to mirror position
    • The park neutral position switch, if equipped with memory mirrors--Provides transmission gear selection information to the PCM and is used for memory recall and mirror tilt in reverse functions
    • The powertrain control module, if equipped with memory mirrors--Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced and provides Class 2 message indicating transmission gear selection
    • The driver information center (DIC), if equipped with memory mirrors--Part of the instrument cluster which is a Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced and is used to personalize the memory recall and mirror tilt in reverse functions
    • Fold motor in each of the outside mirrors, if equipped with power fold mirrors--Provides extend and retract movements of the mirror and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
    Each of the outside power mirrors contains 2 reversible motors to provide horizontal and vertical movement of the mirror glass. The vertical motor operates the up and down directions and the horizontal motor operates the left and right directions. If equipped with power folding mirrors, each outside power mirror will contain a reversible fold motor to operate the extend and retract functions. Each of the mirror motors are circuit breaker protected.
    DTC B1722
    The driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM) switch the mirror fold motor control circuits to battery voltage and ground in response to mirror extend or retract command.
