How to Set Reverse Tilt Mirror Location


Recommended Posts

Newbie here...

I have a new 15 Sierra SLT with the reverse tilt mirrors. When you put it into R the mirrors automatically tilt downward to a specific location. For me, the location selected does not work...I want to modify or move where the mirrors point to when the truck is placed in R. I can't seem to locate how to do this. When in R, I can change the mirror location, but it does not remember that same location the next time the truck is placed in R. Help?

 

Thanks,

-James

OM suggests that only the pre-selected location is available.

 

Reverse Tilt Mirrors
If equipped with memory seats, the passenger and/or driver mirror tilts to a preselected position when the vehicle is in R (Reverse). This allows the curb to be seen when parallel parking.
The mirror(s) return to the original position when:
. The vehicle is shifted out of R (Reverse), or remains in R (Reverse) for about 30 seconds.
. The ignition is turned off.
. The vehicle is driven in R (Reverse) above a set speed.
To turn this feature on or off, see Vehicle Personalization on page 5-46.
I wonder if it just tilts down from the original position, so that if the original position is set wide then the tilt down is also wide?

I am fairly certain my '04 2500HD LT had this capability...oh well. Maybe this is something GM could engineer into future builds.

It did, as does my 2015. In reverse, set your mirrors to where you want them then place in Park. They will return to that position (if feature is on) each time you put it in reverse. Just checked it...

Makes sense that they could be adjusted that way.

Hmm...just tried this. Put in Reverse, the mirrors tilted down halfway, I modified their position (still in R) then finished parking, placed in Park. Turned off truck then put back in Reverse....still only tilted down halfway. Thoughts??

Year, model, brand?

Mine doesn't seem to save the down position independent of the up.

 

It appears to maintain a fixed number of degrees between the 2 positions.

 

If I adjust the 'down' position to be lower, then when the mirrors return to the up position, it (the up position) will also be lower. In other words, adjusting the mirror in either the up or down position seems to affect BOTH, but does not seem to change the angle between the 2 settings.

With my vehicle in reverse, I changed the position of the driver's side mirror only. Took it out of reverse, and BOTH mirrors stayed in the last positions. Had to adjust both back to normal position.

That sounds like the "time out" issue talked about in other threads. When you come out of reverse, if you have the feature turned on in the menus, they should return to the memory saved position.

      So up until yesterday the truck was driving relatively smoothly, there was the occasional hard shift from 1st to 2nd (which I believe these trucks are known for). I stopped at a stop light yesterday and started going and then at about 20 MPH the truck decided it didnt want to shift. This happened a few times throughout the day and seemed to get worse as the day went on and at this point it now does it every time it gets down into the lower gears. I switched to manual to see what gear it was stuck in and it showed 2nd and then 3rd after it shifted and didnt want to shift up. 
       
      EDIT: Transmission temps when I was looking did not appear to get above 205 F, Fluid is red like it should be, level seems fine. 

      Is there a known issue with these transmissions or an easy fix I can attempt? Transmissions are voodoo to me

      Hi everyone, first time posting, but long time reader. I usually try to avoid posting when I can, and  just browse the threads and read about related problems and figure it out from there. Even though I've found many threads that are similar to the problem Im having, I still can't narrow it down to my next step. so if anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      Ok so, BAD oil leak problem with my friends 2005 GMC Sierra 1500. It's had this leak for a while, but it's gotten to the point now where it's starting to leave puddles. I power washed the entire area, and I actually got it pretty clean. Today when I looked again to see if I could trace the source, I had a much clearer picture of where the leaks are actually coming from. From what I've read it seems as though it could be the valve cover gasket, the crankshaft sensor, the rear main seal, or even the oil pan gasket. My problem is that to me, it looks like it's coming from almost all these places. I looked inside the bell housing and I don't see it looking completely soaked in oil. It does however, look like the leak is mainly coming from in front of the bell housing behind the engine, in between the two. I'll attach some pictures. These would be from overnight after I power washed it, so the oil hasn't blown anywhere from being driven or anything. Thanks so much to anyone who's got any ideas!
