ISSUE:

The 2005-2006 Expedition Limited edition, 2003-2006 Navigator, and the 2004-2006 F-150 King Ranch vehicles have Power Folding Mirrors as a standard feature. Customers may not fully understand the operation of the side mirrors. Some customers have returned for service stating that the mirrors are loose, won’t lock, are over extended or won’t fully extend. This condition will occur if the mirrors are moved inward/outward manually. The mirrors cannot be manually reset, and must be reset using the mirror switch.

ACTION:

Please inform your customers of the power folding mirror operation outlined below, specific to their vehicle type, and provide them with a copy of the normal operating characteristics from their owner’s manual.

NOTE:IF THE POWER FOLDING MIRRORS ARE FOLDED OR UNFOLDED CONTINUOUSLY (6 TO 10 CYCLES), THE POWER LOCKOUT FEATURE WILL DISABLE THE SYSTEM FOR 2 MINUTES TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO THE POWER FOLD MOTORS. AFTER 2 MINUTES HAVE ELAPSED, NORMAL OPERATION WILL RESUME. IF A CUSTOMER REPORTS INTERMITTENT FUNCTION ON A POWER FOLD MIRROR, ENSURE THAT THE CUSTOMER IS NOT MISTAKING THIS PROGRAMMED 2 MINUTE BREAK FOR DAMAGE BEFORE REPLACING THE MIRROR.
