Turning signals in mirrors
I have a truck that is NOT equipped with turning signals in the side mirrors. I was wondering if I purchased new nirrors with the turn signals in them, will they work or is each truck equipped with a special wiring harness for various features??? My 09 had them and I kind of liked them My 11 doesn't and I was thinking about making the upgrade if its possible. Maybe Mike or one the other guys can answer my question!! Thanks

I'm kind of interested in this as well. Of course, I don't have any power or accessory options so I think I will be a little more involved in it but am still curious on what it might take to do this mod.2005 Chevy Silverado W/T

There is a good chance if your truck did not come equipped with turn signal mirrors your current mirror harness will NOT be equipped with that feature. Almost all aftermarket turn signal mirrors come with instructions on how to wire them into your existing wiring for the truck turn signals.
good Luck and post some pics when you get them installed!

I did find that I have the DL8 mirror package on my truck which is power/ heated mirrors. No turn signals or power folding. Just wondering if I getting mirrors with turning signals if they will flash or just plain old not work??

Maybe I wasn't clear. Plug them in and the signals will work. No extra wiring....no flash. This mod has been documented countless times on various forums. The signals in my tows work and I only had power/heat before with no signals.

Thank you Blackout 07!!! You answered my question!!

Yep, Blackout is right. The truck signals are wired to the plug in the door, the plug on the mirror without turns just doesn't have that pin in the plug. That's how mine worked anyway. You should go with the tow mirror upgrade.2008 Silverado LT 5.3, Rancho 4", 18x9 XD Addicts, 295/70/18 Nitto Trail Grappler m/t's, Westin brush guard, Go Rino steps, Truxedo lo pro cover, magnaflow, tow mirrors.
