    My 2011DC does not have the wiring in the doors for anything except mirror adjustment. You need to check on that before you buy anything.

    I have the limited mirrors with puddle and power fold. Everything works except those two items. Need the switch and add additional wires. That is where i stopped for now. As soon as i get the motivations and time i will try to tackle this. Don't have the info on how to wire it up. Will need to do some research.

    Just put new Tow mirrors on our '08.
    Wiring at the factory mirrors was 3 connectors. Left is (from upper left corner) Green, Red, Black. Right is White, Orange, Black, also from upper left corner.
    The upper section of the mirrors can be aimed as before with the switch. The lower section can be adjusted by hand. The entire mirror telescopes in and out manually. And the turn signals on the mirrors do not flash.[​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    To get the other functions to work I'll need to add wiring and change out the switch.
    Another day.

    So I do want to have the turn signals on the mirrors to function. How do I find a wiring diagram with detail that shows the cable to the doors?

    Drove the truck to check mirror aiming and such.
    These mirrors have 2 LED (?) clusters on the out edge. One for turn signal? other for Parking Lights?
    No "Puddle Lights" (would shine down?).
    Looks like I've got to take the door trim off and see how many wires and what function in the cabling there. Then get hardware to add new circuits to the mirrors from the cabling either in the door, preferable, or in the footwells.

    I posted a link to the "cloud" a while a while back for a complete wiring diagram but I'll be darned if I can find it now. If you have some time, stroll through my posts. It is out there....

    Well, the file is too large to post and I can't figure out how to post a link to the PDF file I created in the cloud. Afraid it will require some more work on my part. Forgot how the hell I did it last time....

    Yeah, 1265 pages is a lot to ferret through but the major headings are listed in alphabetical order for the most part. Hope it helps.

    Whoa. Lots to digest there!
    I need to isolate the circuitry at the mirror (side of the connector) and figure out which is ground and which is power for the various functions. Probably best to remove a door panel and make up a set of 12v test connectors from a battery pack.

    Might be the quickest route to go. I know that the diagrams can be pretty intimidating to try and follow.

    The mirrors I bought have tilt and swivel motors, turn signals, clearance lights, and heaters. If they have motors to extend them or fold them I can't tell yet.
    I've been able to ID most of these connections from the wiring diagram and will try to post which wire goes where.

    I also sent an email to the vendor asking for an internal wiring diagram for the mirrors no response yet.

    Cool beans! Looking forward to your write-up. Glad the wiring diagram helped.

    See if I can't figure whether there's a motor to extend/retract the mirrors by putting voltage to the connectors not identified.

    Bummer, after all that work! If I thought it would keep my wife from wanting to drive my truck, I'd put them on mine! :D
