Power mirrors wont fold in

Hey guys just brought an 08 F350 lariat 40k on it and the mirrors function fine as far as powering them out or in for towing well the driver one does iam not sure if the passenger is suppose to do it though. I can adjust the mirrors them self fine but when i want to fold them in and pull the button back just how it saids it on the plastic piece they dont fold in anyway of checking the switch if its bad or an common failures in these?

Both Mirrors SHOULD telescope in and out.

Both Mirrors Should Power Fold in and out.

I had a loose connector that wouldn't allow them to fold. I'd check there first...

i am a walking screaming hell. a thing of torture to behold. this vivisection splits my soul. a thing of torture to behold... yeah!

Make sure the switch is in the center position.
