Retro fit 'Auto Stow'?

Recommended Posts

20220216_200127.thumb.jpg.cc4233379afaa80326514271cffd4b94.jpgHi. I have a 2008 Vellfire 2.4 It is an 8 seater and has a single powered door and cloth seats. I'm not sure what model this is; G,S etc?

The electric mirrors do stow, but with a single small button next to the mirror controls. Can the mirrors be converted to 'Auto Stow'?

I have found out from several people that most older Toyotas have wiring looms fitted with wiring for most  accessories produced for each model. Is the wiring in for upgrading to Auto Stow?

PS. Are there any other Vellfire owners on the Wirral????

I did this, I brought a little box gizmo that you wire into the door electrics, and the mirrors fold when you press lock the doors, but I think you could wire them to lock on any other signal you wanted. Think I posted about it somewhere, but too many forums so who knows. I brought some of the Toyota connector pins, and re pinned some slots to take the additional wires and do a tidy job.
