Here we have our upgraded tow mirror for the 2008 to '16 Toyota Sequoias, as well as the 2007 to 2016 Toyota Tundras. Now we understand there's been some confusion as to how you hook up the power fold feature in vehicles that were not equipped with factory power fold. To make it clear, we're going to show you exactly where this harness connects into your mirror as well as where you should be expecting to make these other connections to hook up your aftermarket power fold feature.

This red wire will be stripped and installed into this butt connector here, which leads to our add a fuse circuit here—which will remove a factory five amp or higher fuse from your fuse panel. We recommend something like your cigarette lighter, that will only work with the vehicle's power on. You will remove that fuse. Install this and install the fuse you removed into this open terminal here, while this will supply power to the switch. This black wire will be attached to a rust free clean bolt on bare metal somewhere underneath your dashboard to ground this switch to the chassis.

The green connector will connect into your switch, which you'll cut a hole and mount into your dash. Now if your vehicle did not have the factory power fold, this connection needs to be tapped into the mirror. This is where a lot of people have been having trouble. What you have to do is peel the backing here off the base plate of the mirror. Down where your connector is that your factory wiring harness will plug into. Inside you'll find this white and yellow connector here going into the connector for your factory harness.

This is looped from the factory to make sure if your vehicle had factory power fold that this option is plug and play. However, for those of you watching this video, to add this feature to your vehicle, you want to disconnect this connector, run it through the small opening and this shielding, lay the backing back into place and connect the appropriate side of the harness included with your kit to that connection. If everything is hooked up correctly, this will allow the power fold function to work off of the aftermarket switch and harness included in your kit.
