    Default Drivers door mirror

    Hey all,
    My drivers side door mirror changed from being independant to operating at the same time as the passenger side.
    it has now stopped working completely and after three trips to the stealers they have said that it is a control module that has caused it. Which control module could they be talking about?

    The drivers door module (DDM) controls the mirrors however the passenger mirror and drivers nmirror do work together its in the handbook I think only the passenger mirror works on its own, but to save some money I would try and clean the drivers door switch which are known to get dirty and become intermittent especially on switch functions like the mirrors that don't get used that much.

    Thanks, for that, but my manual says press the switch and it operates the corresponding mirror. if it was the switch I would have thought that the passenger mirror wouldn't move either. Although it could i suppose be the the selector switches. I;ll give it a go, nothing to lose.

    My mirrors work independently of each other, I think it may be later models that both mirrors move.

    I can confirm that my mirrors are now operating independantly again, although I had to push for them to use tech 2 do do it.
    The mechanic still insisted that they should both move together as he has a Vectra the same year and says that his is like that. After he had done it he said that no one has ever asked for that before, but I had asked every time I went in. The service Manager says I can have his job.
    What other secret lie in the Tech2 programming?
