I'm looking to eventually wire mine up to fold out when the car is opened and fold in when locked. My system is complicated by the fact that the alarm auto-locks and unlocks the doors, so I can't simply use the central locking as suggested. If your car doesn't auto-lock then with a simple interposing relay it should be simple enough to work out.


I'll need to take mine off the alarm unit itself to find a perm-live that operates with arm & disarm. Not 100% sure if it will work yet.


Great bits of kit though these units. Mine works fine with the turbo timer and the mirrors stay out until the engine switches off.

Surely a simple time delay relay would do the trick without the hassle?

In answer to your question, I have a test rig here that I test all the units on before they get sent out. If you could return the one you have, I'll test it when I get it back. If there's something wrong with it, I'll refund your postage (around 3 quid). I'll include return address label so you can re-use the jiffy bag.

2 minute job to exchange the unit now that you've done the wiring

Dozza went "Off the reservation" for quite some time.


Mine is still working and as I wired it differently it still has the heated mirrors which are a god send in this weather!

It does it you wire it the way the OP suggested as it effectively cuts into the incoming power to the window controls and cuts the heated mirror line. I think a few pages back I said how I'd done mine connecting into another 12v source instead.

I will have to find your link as heated mirrors are a must as not only frost but just mist etc gets on them fire the heaters on for a few seconds clear...
