What else can this car do?


Recommended Posts

No questions this time, just a gasp of amazement, as it were.


Just as I was getting used to my car's seat, steering column and pedals taking up their pre-determined memory position when I get in the car, I've now noticed that the mirrors do likewise.


We are surely cosseted beyond measure in these cars :D

Paul does this mean that when stationery the mirrors return to the closed position? If this is the case then it solves our little dilemma of power mirror modules, I suspect they are controlled by the ECU like the seat etc

No Kenny,


if somebody else has used the car and adjusted the mirrors, they will return to the original memorized position.


Remote folding is something I'm actively looking into at the moment ;)

Because they have modules controlling them I believe its going to be hard to find an answer to that one Paul, they must surely be controlled via the ECU with the electrical diagram showing forward and reverse motors for each mirror along with resistors and heater elements obviously being controlled by an outside temperature sensor which probably inhibits mirror movement in case of seizure.

The modules in figure 10.2 shows both driver and passenger side having two individual motors with no indication to witch is forward/reverse therefore, no they will not have different polarity unfortunately. The module also shows a resistor bank albeit just two resistors without icing any indication of resistor values or why they they are in the circuit and the heater element circuitry.

There is a lot of cables going into each module which can be identified buy the colour codes but without knowing what the individual components are within other than the fact the motors are show along with the resistor bank and heater I wouldn't like to hazard a guess in drawing a electrical diagram with the information available to us.

Wow - two motors where most other manufacturers rely on one?


I'm even more pleased that I bought this car :)


Thoughts continue regarding remote folding Kenny. Maybe we'll get there between us. Thanks for your help so far.

Yes, I was a little surprised in the complexity the designers have gone into to develop these modules. The only way I can see us getting to the bottom of this issue is by locating the modules and measuring the voltages as they are plied for opening closing etc. Obviously I would need to be with you to apply my experience due to the fact I don't have an S Type. Where in the West Midlands do you live? West Midlands would include the City of Hereford which is only an hours drive for me, I was brought up there
