Someone help me!! Lol. Bought my 01 heaven on wheels a couple of weeks ago and it came with the newer box style tow mirrors. Come to find out the previous owner just bolted then on the truck and never wired them up. Spent the past couple days reading through forum after forum trying to find the right wire color match up. Took me so long Bc my mirrors only have 5 wires not 7. Dig in a lil deeper into the mirror to find that the turn signal and marker light are both completely gone!! Bulb socket, wires and all. Can someone help me with where I can find the bulb sockets to fit the mirror.

If you have questions I can help you out.

A heads up to anyone adding options not originally installed on your truck, such as turn signals or power fold, 1A Auto will void your warranty. I added power folding and even asked 1A Auto customer service questions about the wiring, but was told after I installed the mirrors that my warranty is void since I wired my truck for power folding. I made no modifications to the 1A Auto mirrors. The description of the mirrors state some features may not work if not originally equipped, but no mention of the warranty being voided.

I have a question I hooked up the heat on my mirror. I hooked it to a carling rocker switchthat is 20 amp. Do I need to install a relay or something? How many amps do the heated mirrors pull? Thank you

Hey can anybody help my wires seem a bit off? Brown and green are for my lights, black is ground, black white tracer is heated mirrors. I have a red and blue with silver spots, they are for the power mirror and then 2 yellow wires that are connected together at a splice. My truck is a 2000 that only had the small power only mirror. When i hook up the power function the mirror moves in a rolling motion instead of a straight up/down side to side motion. The truck wiring is yellow, red and blue

Quick update, I'm on a second set from A1 Auto. The first set is on my F350, the recent set is on my Excursion. Even after I ordered the 08 version instead of the 02 version, A1 Auto saved me from myself. I will say their customer service via phone was frustrating (understatement) but when I messaged A1 Auto on here..very quick results and I'll continue to purchase from them in the future.
