So far in 1 week ive had a problem with the oil level sensor / air bag light and NOW THE DRIVERS MIRROR hAS REFUSED TO MOVE INTO THE OUT POSITION.
On dismantling the mirror i found the black sealed electronic box had given up the ghost due to water ingress. I bypassed this box and connected the motor straight to the suppoly and the mirror now moved out and in perfectly, but that box ive bypassed has a job to do and what are the consequenses of removing it from the system?
Am i right in thinking this box is there to stop the motor overloading & continually trying to run if the mirror mechanism jams ? or is there some other obscure reason that fiat put this box in there.
