Hey everyone,
I took delivery of my F250 Lariat Tremor today, and got into the advanced settings in the gauge cluster (steering wheel menu) and see the Autofold mirror option under Mirrors but can not check the box to enable this feature. Any idea how I can enable this feature???

I have had mine for 1 week and this is driving me crazy as well! I’ve tried everything, eventually even including FORSCAN changes to enable Lincoln style folding mirrors, but it would seem that box would still need to be checked because i get no folding. I’ve asked the dealer to address it when it’s in next week for the winch install. Hopefully they can figure it out…

While I don't have an answer, and haven't experienced this myself, trying to gather some more info in case it helps me or other folks have actual suggestions.

When you try to check that box does it check and then immediately uncheck? Or does nothing happen at all when you try to check it? (By "try to check it" I mean pressing the "OK" button on the steering wheel when the checkbox has focus.)

Any chance someone could share a video of the behavior for us all to analyze?

I woke up tried it again now it works. So weird, my guess is the trucks computer reset or something over night. Weird.

Good! My thought was to pull the battery cable and reconnect to force a reset of the module.

When you make the change to Lincoln Style mirrors in Forscan, make sure you activate both the left and the right side mirrors. They are separate codes and if you only do one of them, it will not work.

I will also add, being a new truck it may take several key cycles for everything to activate properly. If you make a Forscan change, for instance, it does not always register on the first restart. Since your truck is new it wouldn't surprise me if the same phenomenon occurred on that particular module.

@jrhaze another thing to try is to say "no" when Forscan asks to load an existing profile. This will force a module rescan.

Mine did the same thing. After driving if for a day it mysteriously became selectable. Glad to hear it worked for you.

I will try that’s- didn’t know. Thank you! Mine is still not working but encouraging to hear that it magically started working for others I’ll keep trying until my dealer appointment.

Another note, do I need to “undo” forscan changes prior to a dealer visit?

I made the change in 2 different modules (pdm and bdm if I remember correctly?) but I don’t think I need left and right.

The box just won’t check. No check ever shows up, pressing “ok” just does…nothing.

No need to undo Forscan changes for dealer visit.
Agree. I would, however, either backup the changes you made or make note of them. If the dealer resets any module as part of their troubleshooting you will go back to the factory settings.

Thank you both, I’ll do that.

Forgive my lack of knowing something. Is this only on 22's or can the 21's do this?

Real easy to check. Tab all the way over to the gear icon/settings and scroll down to vehicle, under vehicle select mirrors. It'll have one option listed: Auto fold mirrors, with a check box.

BTW: tried every thing I could think of to troubleshoot this minus disconnecting the batteries, and still doesn't work.
