Did they give you any wiring diagrams or information you can show us that would help out?

Right now I'm kind of thinking that we'd need to supply each wire from the switch to a relay and then over to the mirror. But there has to be a better way.

Vehicle is '99 *-10 p/u. Mirrors are from '06 Cadillac w/pwr fold, signal in mirror, and pwr adjust options. I got the pwr fold to work OK , then bought pwr mirror switch on EBay that is rated for 12v and 150ma. Seller said I would need relays for adjust feature so that I wouldn't damage switch. Thought about wiring a 40 amp relay to input side of switch and hopefully that would protect the switch. Have checked mirror schematics for 03 Chev and 06 Cadillac and cannot find any relays in the adjust circuit. Hope this helps. I am not too computer savvy regarding sending photos, schematics, etc so please bear with me in this respect.

Did the *-10 originally have power mirrors and you are replacing them with cadillac mirrors or are you trying to replace manual fold? You might have to setup a whole new wiring setup if u are replacing manual fold.

one relay before the switch isnt going to protect the switch, and gm wouldn't of used a switch rated for less than the mirror draws, in order to use the switch you would have to have 4 relays with a 4way switch,
do you have any specs on what the mirror draws? i tried those links and they dont work. i would think just getting a switch from the type of vehicle the mirrors came from would be an easier process
