If you are talking about the fold mechanism itself, there is no relay. The fold motors are controlled directly by the Driver's Seat Module (DSM.)

There is a relay for the heat function. It is located in the Battery Junction Box and is shown in the diagram in the owner's manual.

If you are trying to add power fold mirrors to a truck that originally doesn't have them...it will not work. Here is a question asked to the Ford Hotline:

From the Owner:

(Pasted exactly as written, not my grammar or misspellings...lol)

Is it possible to add power folding mirrors to this F150? I see no Dealer accessories for power folding mirrors and I see they run through the drivers door module.

Anthony,
Replacing the factory equipped exterior mirrors with OEM power folding mirrors is not recommended or supported.
Due to differences in module configuration and wiring harness circuits, the power folding mirrors will not function if added to a vehicle that was not originally equipped with them.


Otherwise from what I read FireMe has answered you correctly that there is no relay...it is controlled through the drivers seat DSM.

Actually there is a relay and the 2010 F150 Platinum has power folding mirrors.
The Ford "hotline" is a JOKE and can't answer custom questions. I had raced a 2005 Mustang I put a supercharger on and 6 speed and twin fuel pumps from ford and the hotline was worthless.
there is a few folks on another forum that did the conversion on a 2005 & 2008 they did some custom wiring. Im just going to copy the platinum set up.

Well, for the second time I just looked through the wiring for the power fold mirrors and don't see a relay anywhere except in the heater circuits. The power fold motor in each mirror is controlled through the Driver's Seat Module on circuits CPM-39 and CPM-04 and runs through connectors C341C, C219 (on some models,) and C521 at the mirror.

The DSM gets the fold signal directly from the power mirror switch through circuit CPM22. It goes through connectors C527, C219 (on some models,) C300, and C341C at the DSM.

If you find out where that relay is, make sure you come back and update this thread and I will show Ford so they can update their wiring diagrams.

Okay if you say so

I know there is a relay on the 2006 and 2008............
