    Hello all,

    I am replacing my mirrors on my vehicle to Power folding from manual folding. The factory option requires memory seats and a programed module to operate. I do not have this, so I am attempting to create a work around with relays. The factory system uses a single momentary switch to activate the fold function in/out. I would like to use the factory switch to keep it clean. This can be done with a new three way toggle switch but I want to see what I can come up with to keep it factory like. The mirror has a pin for "fold out" and a pin for "fold in". The switch is a simple momentary push function. I would like to have a resulting output with one wire(a or "fold in") +, and one wire(b "fold out") +. Push and hold the push button and it provides + to wire(a) to fold the mirror in. Push and hold the push button again, and it provides + to wire(b) to open the mirror out. Basically cycling between a + output between(a) then (b). Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Kerry
