Here are some tips to consider prior to performing your installation:

  • Verify that you have the correct kit for your vehicle.
  • Work in an area that will allow you to open your doors wide without damaging them on walls, benches, another vehicle, etc.
  • Wear safety glasses and gloves.
  • Make sure you have use of either a voltmeter or a test light so you can verify that you have the correct wires prior to making the connections.
  • Read the instructions!
  • If you are installing the Wide Angle Signal Mirror®, Brake Module, H-MOD or MultiFunction Module, keep in mind that the instructions for these kits do not contain specific wiring directions and you will have to determine the correct wires yourself. You may be able to get wiring information from your dealership or a business that specializes in 12 volt accessories. You can also “pull” your tail lights and see what color wires are there to see if those same wires are available under the dash area. If you’re not sure, it’s recommend to seek professional installation.
  • If you are unclear about something with the instructions, please request help.

 

Troubleshooting tips:

  • At any time, you can first check the function of a Signal® Mirror with a 9-volt battery by connecting directly to the pigtail behind the mirror. If the mirror lights up, the problem is located with the wiring in the vehicle.
  • Signal® Mirror(s) won’t activate with the vehicle’s turn signal:
    • Check to see if the Signal® Mirror is plugged into the wire harness behind themirror glass
    • Test the connection behind the Signal® Mirror by probing for power
    • Verify the Signal Mirror® wire harness was not damaged or cut during installation
    • Check the connections to both the vehicle’s turn indicator wiring and the ground
    • Probe the vehicle’s wire that was tapped and verify it’s the correct wire
  • Signal® Mirror(s) worked for a period of time after installation and stopped working:
    • Check to see if the Signal® Mirror is plugged into the wire harness behind the mirror glass
    • Test the connection behind the Signal® Mirror by probing for power
    • Verify the Signal Mirror® wire harness was not damaged or cut
    • Check the connections to both the vehicle’s turn signal wiring and the ground
  • The fuse “blows” when the turn indicator is activated (check the side that causes the fuse to blow):
  • Check the Signal Mirror® harness for a bare wire that may be contacting the body of the vehicle
  • Check the wire tap to be sure the metal jumper is still covered and not contacting the body
  • Check the Signal Mirror® harness to see if it has been pinched and the wire insulation may be damaged allowing the wire to contact the body
  • Wire colors and/or location of wires the instructions say to tap are not correct:
    • Check for a bundle of wires that may be wrapped up hiding the wire colors
    • Pull the tail-lights and probe there to determine what the wire colors are; try to find that color in the same location that’s been called out in the instructions
    • Check in the door sill on either side of the vehicle for the correct wire color(s) from the instructions and probe to verify they are the correct wire(s)
