Turn signal in side mirrors

Ok, so my 2011 Laredo X does not have it, but I WANT IT! If I go and order a set of Limited side mirrors, with the turn signals built in, is the harness available in my Laredo door you think? Any ideas are welcome!

Re: Turn signal in side mirrors

I think he means in the mirror part, like a Ford, and I don't think it does that on any model. There's a blinker at the base of the mirror that shows to the front.

Re: Turn signal in side mirrors

On my Limited, four leds across the bottom of the mirrors blink when turn signal is engaged. Its possible that there is a connector in that harness just waiting for that, not sure.

Re: Turn signal in side mirrors

I would bet that all is needed is the signal mirror. At the most...you may have to tp into the turn signal wire at the front headlight signal

Re: Turn signal in side mirrors

If your able to follow the wire harness up to the mirror, check to see if there is more spots then wires in the connector or wires that aren't being used?

Interesting...do they blink all at once, or do they blink sequentially? And you do mean in the mirror glass, and not in the outside bottom of the housing?

Re: Turn signal in side mirrors

Scottina is right, it is the outside I'm referring to. I will go to the dealer today and see wha they have to say. based on my earlier comms with them I don't have high hopes...

Re: Turn signal in side mirrors

Just curious, but why do you want to add these to the mix? I guess it's a slight safety issue, but I see more value in the Ford stuff that shows the turn in the mirror for folks alongside you.

Re: Turn signal in side mirrors

well, I'm not sure about how exactly it looks on the GC, but on other cars the LED's can be spotted from the side, rear and from the front so the situational awareness increases dramatically for the folks around you.
