Very insightful ideas! I'll have to do some testing on the mirrors once they arrive to figure out exactly how they function. I just hope that they run on 12v DC and are not actually stepped down at the ETACS module.

My guess would be 12V servos, they would probably want something stronger since there could be some weather exposure. Good Luck!

Motors did end up running on 12v, which is great! I tried out the 535T to see if it would work for this application, but it only moves the mirrors an inch and stops. This is after several attempts at end limit programming. Not sure why it doesn't want to move completely in both directions.

Are you using the orange status inpit trigger? I know the 535 is a little different and think if that wire sees ground the one touch will not work which would pulse the output. Did you try the 12v switch leads as triggers?

Correct, I tried to trigger using the 12v switch wires. The orange status wire was wired up to the "ground when armed" side of the alarm, but I never set the alarm to test the feature. It looks like it fails to detect the folding end limits of the mirrors during the programming cycle.

Disconnect the ground when armed wire and try it, I believe that the 535 added a failsafe to stop the window up motion so it wouldn't trigger motion sensors as part of the logic upgrade from the 530 along with the "Learn" feature to set the motor stop resistance threhhold

Sounds like a plan, I'll give it a try and report back to see what happens
