Default Mirror Swap 2011 Platinum Tow Mirror to Power Folding

Hello all-
I have replaced the tow mirrors on my truck with the power folding, as well as the appropriate switch.
All of the features are working except the power fold.
Any idea on what I need to do to get that to work?

The harness which fits in to the new switch has wires in all of the holes.

Thanks in advance.

Paul

I'm not sure on the 2011 if all the wiring will be there, but it probably is. At a minimum you will have to take your truck to the dealer to it flashed for the power fold feature. This is controlled by the DSM and SJB.
Good luck.

When you ordered the mirrors, did they arrive folded? Mine did. If so, how did you unfold them?

You can fold/unfold them by hand just like the ordinary ones. This is good, otherwise someone could break them off..

I started hearing cracking when I was trying to unfold them by hand, but after installation I just pulled on it and it unfolded fine. Sorry for wasting your time
