I would check the switch first and also the passenger side door jamb wire harness also i know it sounds simple but ALWAYS check ALL of you fuses before beginning any electrical fault tracing, try removing the switch and identify which wire powers the mirror and manually jump power with a paper clip to the mirror in question there should only be three wires one will have power and the others will be left and right mirror retraction if this works your switch is bad if not go to the mirror and power that manually and if no dice you got a bad motor -jeff

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.

Passenger mirror not folding in


Grab the passenger mirror with both hands. Fold the mirror all the way forward, all the way back and then back to the home position. Sometimes the mirror will get off track if it has been bumped or moved out of place manually.

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.

Removal & Installation

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.
