Well here's my problem, maybe these wires need to be connected to something lol :bangshead:

I've connected the three wires necessary to make the mirrors function. Now to study the write ups to learn how to wire up the folding option.

Now that I've learned a previous owner had mounted power folding mirrors on my USDM car at one point in time and that they were never wired (not even the three wires for the mirror adjustment on each side) I have decided to complete what was started. I purchased the switch & relay box pictured in the original post. The parts came in the mail and I have already studied the wiring diagrams from other members who have successfully adapted these mirrors to function on a USDM ST185, one like this:

It all seems easy enough. I'm gonna run the four extra wires to each mirror but I would like to know where to properly mount the mirror control relay on my USDM 1992. Member DeeCee responded in an earlier post that "The relay box is located underneath the drivers side panel next to the steering column on RHD cars.", what about a LHD Celica? If there isn't a proper place to secure it I guess I could just mount it anywhere like under the radio.

Securely mount the relay box in an under dash location where it will not get knocked around - don't be tied to doing things in a perfect OEM way - be practical and logical :)

Should be fine. Just ensure you have room for the loom to go to the unit and its done like a done thing :)
