So I was outside installing my led head lights and I got them both in. Turned on the lights and it said low beam issue on drivers side. So I reconnected the led and everything works awesome. I get in the car and I noticed the folding mirror automatic light wasn’t on. So I toggle back and forth and the mirrors don’t fold. But I can move the mirrors around. I get out the car and lock the car. Still no folding. I’m kinda stuck on what could be the problem. And I don’t see anything anywhere! Please help!! Thanks!!

Checked the fuse diagram and it indicated the power to the switch is on a circuit with other items (clock-10A) so I would assume the fuse to be good, if not other accessories wouldn't operate properly. There is a Mirrr-HTD (10A) fuse, but I would believe it to be the heated circuit only.
I would check power at the switch.

If the fuse has not been blown and the mirrors work fine when you remove the LED headlights, then that would be an indication that the LED bulbs might be the issue causing the problem.

If you aren't sure if they are what are causing the issue, try removing them and see if the problem goes away.

If so, you know the issue is the LED headlights affecting the LCM (Lighting Control Module) on the vehicle. (Which I have seen happen before)

Thanks for the reply’s guys. Just a little insight. It’s raining out so I haven’t been able to try anything yet. But the mirrors were working then I noticed that the drivers side led didn’t look bright. So I went and unplugged the and replugged it a different way. Then when I turned the light on it said low beam issue. So I plugged it back the way I had it and everything was fine. It turned out I just didn’t screw the led in the housing all the way. I got done and locked the car and notice the mirrors won’t fold. It is kinda weird. Everything works on the mirror. Lights, I can adjust the mirror. It tilts when I go into reverse. Except the folding features. The little light that says automatic for folding mirrors doesn’t even illuminate. Very frustrating. I was kinda hoping just a bad fuse from when I reversed the connection. I just wanted to give more of a back story

Here’s an update. I put back in the oem headlights and check the 10a fuses and still the folding mirror won’t fold. But the adjusting mirror and blind spot light works. This is getting annoying. Is there a relay? There’s no noise that I hear when pressing Buttons either
