And take a look at the Electrical diagram from the factory, It lookslike they're only using one relay
Attachment 89468
Give me some feedback !
TXFRDowner,

Your schematic with one relay will not work because the switch doesn't connect to the coil of the relay. You have the power of the circuit going straight to the switch through the normally closed contact.
Also if you look at the Ford OEM schematic at the Power Fold Module the are two relays. They are just running both mirror fold motors at the same time.
You need two relays for a simple motor direction circuit to work.
Relays are cheap and readily available.

Hope this helps.

I'm really ignorant to relays and circuitry. So in the nutshell the OEM Mirror Power Fold Module is the equivalent of the 2 regular universal 5-pin Relays ?
So If I wanted to go with the Factory (PowerFold) switch, I'd have to get the Factory Relay (8C3Z-14N089-A) in order for it to work, right ?

Yes the Power Fold Module is nothing but two relays. Therefore you can buy two standard automotive relays and wire them up the same for much cheaper.

No, you don't have to buy the factory relay if you want to use the factory switch. As long as the factory switch outputs 12V when you want to fold then it will work. That saying you use the schematic that I provided earlier in this forum.

I've been reading about this mod all over the net and thought maybe others might wanna do this too. So I put together this list with some more affordable options.

Here's a list with part numbers and vendors I could find on the net. If you know somewhere we can get these items cheaper by all means share the intel.

The Power Folding Mirrors are not factory. They're made by KoolVue and are an exact replica for a 3rd of the cost.
The LED light strip, I'm just gonna use that to insert inside the amber reflectors and splice it to the existing signal wiring.

And here's the visual for what these items should look like.

PM me if you want the Excel sheet.

Default Auto Folding Mirror Module

Click the image to open in full size.

This is a Power Fold Mirror Electrical Diagram from Ford that I modified. I added this module to the diagram, it automatically fold/unfold the mirrors on Acc on/off.
Part Number: ZMC-UV1. It's made in Korea. They sell it on ebay just search for "ZMC auto fold module".

I haven't done this to my truck yet but when I do I will post pictures.

Hello, I know this is an old thread but....I have a 2007 supercharged Harley f-150 and the only option it does not have is power fold side mirrors! I would like to do this mod using the factory switches. If you could send me all your directions and schematics for this mod...it would really help me a lot!!! Thanks
