Default Auto folding function of door mirrors

Hi, I recently bought a 17reg 308 1.2 Puretech Allure. When I use the remote fob to lock, the door mirrors fold. When I use the remote fob to unlock, the door mirrors unfold.

However, I don't want the remote fob to control the door mirrors. I just want them to be controlled manually when I'm inside the car. Is it possible for me to disable the auto folding function of the remote fob without going to a dealer? Thanks

Yes, this is something that is possible by changing parameters in the BSI. Either you go to a Peugeot rep. to have it done, or you can try someone with diagbox and a good interface that can do it for you...

I have done exactly this that you want on my 2015 308 sw GT, with my interface and diagbox.

On most models you can change the settings by holding the button in the lock or unlock position with the ign on and it then normally give sound or message to activated or deactivated

If you fold the mirrors with the button in the car they will stay folded when you lock and then unlock the car. You will have to use the switch to unfold them.


Thats what the manual says anyway.

Hi, many thanks to those who replied.

Hi Windy1603, I have tried your method but it didn't work.

Hi Rosinsky, your method likely will work but as I still have 6 months of warranty left, I don't really want to use the diagbox to disable it. Besides, I don't have a diagbox at present.

I actually called my local dealer before joining this forum and they suggested set control A (button inside car) to either left or right position then use the remote fob to lock it. However, this didn't work as well.

I will call my local dealer again and let them know. I don't think they know the solution, therefore, I will ask them to contact Peugeot headquarters to obtain the solution. I think the solution is to use a diagbox or something similar to disable it :-)

The handbook does say "The folding and unfolding of the door mirrors using the remote control can be deactivated by a Peugeot dealer or a qualified workshop".

It doesn't make sense to have the door mirrors folding and unfolding continually when entering and exiting the car. This could eventually wear out the motors and quite expensive to replace! Some people will need the auto folding function and some people will not need it like me. Therefore, Peugeot should have added this as an option in the menu to make it flexible.

If you give the swivels a spray of silicone or similar on a regular basis im sure they will last the mirrors still folded fine on my old 307 after 13 yrs and 280K miles

Try again with the ign switch in the Aux position if it has one

These motors will work forever, not a big concern. More likely you break them by hitting the rear view mirror on something than the motor getting ruined by normal use.
I also find the folding of the mirrors quite a good help, for confirming I have closed the doors when walking away...

The peugeot dealer will use their "diagbox" version to do the same...and charge you for it. I think using diagbox for doing this change alone would not invalidate warranty...how could they know you have used it?

You are both correct. But I think ILJ want the reverse: that they donīt fold, and stay unfolded all the time. And fold only when he wants them to...

Hi Windy1603,

It doesn't have an AUX position. I have tried the following:

1. IGN ACC position while holding the lock button on the remote fob and there was no feedback from the display. It didn't disable it.
2. IGN ACC position while holding the unlock button on the remote fob and there was no feedback from the display. It didn't disable it.
3. IGN ACC position while holding both lock and unlock buttons on the remote fob and there was no feedback from the display. It didn't disable it.
4. IGN ON (engine running) position while holding the lock button on the remote fob and there was no feedback from the display. It didn't disable it.
5. IGN ON (engine running) position while holding the unlock button on the remote fob and there was no feedback from the display. It didn't disable it.
6. IGN ON (engine running) position while holding both lock and unlock buttons on the remote fob and there was no feedback from the display. It didn't disable it.

A colleague has a 12 year old 307 and told me his car has the door mirrors auto function enabled all the time and has done 198k miles. The folding mirrors are still operating with no problems so far.
