    Can you convert the mirrors to fold automatically?

    Hello @hukent
    Please add your car to the club garage as this will help us help you.
    Firstly we need to establish if you have electric folding mirrors, if yes than yes you can convert them so it automatically folds and unfolds when you lock and unlock your car but it will require some wiring and adding an additional module.

    Hello @hukent, okay thank you.
    Makes more sense now, thank you.
    So the CR-V is similar to the FR-V. You have to press the button inorder to electronically fold the mirrors.
    An auto folding mirror module can be purchased from eBay which you have to wire in, into the existing button and door actuator.
    What that does is when the module senses the car is being locked or unlocked it sends the signal to the mirrors to open or close.
    Inorder to do this job, you will need a multimeter, soldering iron, heatshrink or electrical tape and tools to remove the doorcard.

    Here's a guide i did for the FR-V.
