Hi I have a 2002 S430, can I upgrade side mirrors to auto fold in and out
Only if it has the correct Drivers side DCM, ICM and EIS which if it's an early car it doesn't unless they have been replacedOn the W220, the side mirrors can be programmed to fold in when locking the doors with the remote control.
Mine is USA and I do not have to hold it.You do have to hold it, at least on USA cars. It will fold in, or go out as appropriate, for as long as you hold the button. There are times my wife has used this feature to adjust the mirrors on her S500 because, unlike me, she's not all that tall, so this works out for her.
It was one of my later reasons for coming to this forum. How to get auto folding and 1 touch to work. And was told many times it could not be done. When in fact any year can be made to have this feature. Dave knows of my adventures down this path.Interesting...must be a programmatic setting, then. The wife's car, we do. And we consider that a feature. I'm going to look more into this, so I'm kinda glad this came up for discussion.
You might get off easier than you think....In SDS, check for vehicle version under EIS for body. If you are set to My 99/X 01/1 blah blah blah.... change it to the next one down. this should turn on your auto 1 touch function and enable you to get auto fold to work if your DCM's are the correct ones. You will know immediately. Set it and apply, then touch your mirror button to see if it works.Sigh...they should've just used the same firmware all the way through the S-classes and made it simple.
These cars have been teaching me why the word, "kompliziert" is so common in Deutsch.
That feature actually comes in handy from time to time.(being able to push and hold for mirror adjust) And no simple way to go back and forth between the two either...I might try that on Dad’s car, also a model year 2000. Can’t do it on the wife’s S500 because she actually uses the “go until you release the button” functionality.
