    OK im glad that you have managed to sort it out.
    as for the mirror button, did you wire in the SE cable to just the CL SAFE wire or did you also split that wire and connect it to the button?

    ok so looking at that diagram im not sure why you have 2 extra relays in there but there is a wire coming from 12 and going to the safe wire and the mirror switch, have you wired that one in properly?

    As i ran out of daylight ran the wires and left the mirror switch disabled. i have though today seen that i cannot control the mirror glass motor so will investigate this as soon as i get a chance

    yes,in this diagram there are two extra relays but i didn't use them,i even don't know what relay are those as they are some kind of relay inverter not a normal relay 12v 30a as i'm told.
    i even can't control the mirror glass motor....
    have a nice time

    OK so i have an update... yesterday as the weather was nice i had a few hours to work on the car.

    I started by investigating why my mirror glass motors were no longer working and how to get the mirror switch working. after talking it through with Scott we worked out the having the folding mirrors plugged into both the door modules and the folding mirror relay was confusing the system.
    So i disconnected the pins from the mirror plug for the folding mirrors (door module side) and left them connected to the relay, then coded the door modules without the folding option and the mirror glass motor started working again.

    It would seem that the mirror fold switch that comes on our door cards is more complicated as there is not an actual wire that it sends the folding signal down, instead it somehow sends the signal down the up, down, left, right signal cables so the only way to get a manual switch working here would be to wire in a new on/off switch for the mirrors which i have an idea for.

    so now that i have the glass working as it should and still have folding mirrors on lock it looks like i have almost completed this install... though there are a couple more things that i have lined up for it so i will update this thread as it happens

    Unless you also used the 2011 door card looms aswell, you'd have to repin your existing looms to make the systems on the doors work fully, they're not plugnplay on 08 onwards door modules.

    i used the wiring diagrams from ELSA to do mine, took a long time too! not for the faint hearted and very involved. dont have it written down and takes wayyy too long to make any sense of.
    If you want to do it i would say either get someone else to do it for you (like me or Nigel) or simply put... good luck!

    Is possible to get the mirrors with folding if car has no folding option.
    But add the relay to fold them when car is locked without getting new door modules?
