    XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    Does anyone know how to actually make the side mirrors fold automatically? I have the option enabled, however enabled or disabled does not seem to make any difference.

    Where is the option enabled? As far as I know, the XTS doesn't have power folding mirrors...at least not in the U.S.

    My Platinum doesn't have folding mirrors. But, it does have reverse tilting mirrors, which I had to disable because the passenger side gets stuck when tilting down and doesn't return to the normal position consistently when shifting to drive. I will have the problem looked at when something more substantial needs fixed as well.

    In the settings, vehicle settings, comfort and convenience ,auto mirror folding, choose auto mirror folding on or off. Let me know if you can figure out how to actually get this to work I.E. how to get the mirrors to auto fold. Attaching photos of menu choices.

    That's interesting! What trim level is your XTS? I have the Luxury trim and my screen stops at the reverse tilt mirror option.

    I have the Premium edition...

    Regardless, it does not seem to work as designed....

    Re: XTS Auto Folding Side Mirrors

    Hmmm, just checked out my XTS Premium in the driveway after reading this thread. My vehicle settings menu options stop with "Reverse Tilt Mirror." There is no "Auto Folding Mirror" option on my ride.
    I took delivery on 7/10/13, perhaps cars having the Auto Folding Mirror option (whether or not it actually works) are later builds?

    Happy New Year

    According to the owners manual section 2-19, move the left right switch selector to the middle position and press the down arrow. Press the down arrow again to unfold the mirrors. Is that what you have been doing?

    Ha! Yes, that was the first thing I tried. I have had several Cadillac's (CTS and 2 SRX's) and they both work in that manner. Not this baby...

    Mine was purchased in December.

    How the heck did you take delivery 7/10/13? Lol

    Seriously though, mine stops at reverse mirror tilt as well. Build date 8/12 plat edition.

    I checked the window sticker and it states "power dual outside mirrors adjustable, w/auto dimming.
    It states nothing about folding and the sequence described in manual does nothing for my car either.

    Did you get a software upgrade by chance and that is why it shows in your cue?

    I have also had this issue. It appears the mirror housing was not designed to have sufficient clearance for the mirror to rotate to the limits the motor allows. The mirror is oversized for the housing.
