    04 DHS mirror "curb view" not working??

    I went into the programming menu today and turned on the curb view feature for the pass. side mirror but no go in reverse? The car has the memory package, both mirrors function perfectly either by manual control or by driver memory but nada on the curb view. Any ideas?

    Are you setting it for the correct driver (1 or 2)?

    The key fob I was using was #2 and the menu that came up was for #2 so I think I did it correctly.

    A look in the manual seems to indicate that it is a global feature and not tied to a specific driver.

    Are you SURE you did it right? I think I had to read that damned manual 3 times before I got it right.

    Now you're making me go back outside to check this out again

    Tried four more times...went step by step and the system confirms that the feature is switched on but still no mirror action.

    My 99 worked sporadically. Never worried too much about it but didn't realize how much I liked it until it didn't work

    I guess I have a mystery to play with sometime. It isn't an issue in the least if or not it works given that a lot of things I regularly have to parallel park (with or without trailer) make that Caddy look like a comparative go-cart size wise. I think I can deal with it

    I don't even get to find out if I like it and AFAIK, this option has never been turned on previously in this car.

    Since you are trying to activate it I assume you live in the city and would use it regularly. Since you have memory and it works, your other option is to manually adjust the mirror when you need it and then let the memory put it back to where it was when you leave. Not quite as convenient as the auto function, but a doable work around.

    Actually Ranger, I live in the country but I work in Toronto where my personal vehicle is rarely driven. It sits in a security lot at whatever studio we're filming in and gets a weekly run around the neighbourhood then back in the lot with it. I have a company vehicle for however many months the production runs.

    The mirror is a non issue other than the fact that the car has it so I thought I'd try it. Today I did the same programming in driver #1 mode and got the same result..the system says active but the mirror won't respond.

    Your solution works just as well and I have actually done that a couple of times since I got the car. I'm still learning what this DHS version has in the toy box and so far I like it! Every new feature I discover is like Christmas morning and I'm ten years old.
