W203 (2001), folding mirrors, Rear Sam
Hi, Just bought my first MB. Love it. I have clicking coming form under the dash and from what I've read I think that could be the Stepper Motor Arm (correct me if I'm wrong). I installed Woofers from my old car and since then I've had a few gremmlins. The radio started flashing on and off for a while. Then the battery didn't seem to have enough power for the engine to turn over so I jump started (big mistake after having read the forums). Since then I still occasionally get the radio flashing and also now the auto headlights doesn't work anymore neither do the interior lights of the car. Again from what I've read this could be down to the rear SAM? Is this right? Also could it just be a matter of reprogramming on the star machine or would it definitely be a sam that needs replacing?
The other thing is that on the car I have the buttons for folding mirrors but on the instrument cluster I don't seem to have the convenience option. Are some cars made with the buttons in place and no folding mirrors or is that also just a matter of re-programming? Is there a visual difference between the normal mirrors and the folding ones?
Thanks in advance for your time.
