Not to my knowledge, Did not know that was possible. Not in my manual either. Or that means I have another thing not working.

I dont think its possible for this year but the only way to see is to go to settings using the steering wheel buttons enter and the rest is self explanatory.

You can set them in "settings" from the steering wheel on my '04. I have them set to close when I lock the car with the remote. They remain closed after you unlock the car until a front door is opened, then they return to the usable position. I don't know if the same feature was available on the '00--but it isn't an option on my car so it's on all '04s.

Good luck.

When you toggle into the "settings" menu, I believe it's in the "convenience" sub-menu along with seat settings and key dependency. It's something like "mirror closing" and the options are on or off.

that function is not available on the 00-02 models as far as I know. Must be only on 04 and newer...?

2000 S classes did not receive that option. it was added in 2003. To enable an earlier car to autofold, you must replace the instrument cluster (perhaps it would have been recalled) and enable that menu in the cluster, and replace the drivers door control module. I did not have to replace my passenger door control module when adding this feature.

When I brought my 2002 S430 (OCT02), the outside mirrors do not fold automatically. However, after one of many warranty repairs (replace ignition switch or steering angle sensor) the car was returned to me with auto-folding mirrors upon locking! Don't know if this is secondary to the dealer changing existing setting or updating software. I liked it, accepted it, and never investigated the cause.

the updated cluster will give the option to you (software) but it will still not work due to the older firmware in the door control modules (firmware)
