How To: Nissan Armada Power Folding Mirror Conversion

Postby Code Pathfinder » Mon Feb 15, 2021 8:56 pm

I ran across this article on one of the xterra websites regarding a mirror swap

https://www.thenewx.org/threads/how-to- ... ra.278054/

I am going to attempt this conversion and let everyone know how it goes!

I am also going to post a easier to read wiring diagram for those who have troubles with electrical projects.

Can't wait for the outcome of your project!
Please do copious documentation for our little gang of merry men here. :D

I would have clicked on it sooner if I had realized you werent asking a question on how to do it (Which I dont)

Once you post up your documentation I change change the title of the thread so folks know its a how-to. :mrgreen:

PS: Can you make a separate thread talking about your tire spare carrier?
I need one to carry extra fuel

I read through the thread and a bit confused about the wiring. Looks like a fun mod, I'd do it for the signals on the mirror and not for the folding :mrgreen:

Good luck!

Nissan Maxima Switch with open and close button:

Heated Mirrors switch (you can also tie the heated mirrors into the rear defrost system but I opted for a separate switch and relay.)

I am attaching a PDF Document with simplified instructions on the installation.

I will also be uploading an in depth video to my youtube channel.

Link for the video will be posted in a different reply.
