03 Nav - Mirrors start to fold but stop

I have an 03 Navigator and am suddenly having a problem with my power mirrors. When I hit the button to fold them in, they move a 1/4 inch or so and stop. I thought maybe it was a battery problem, so I tried it while it was running also. I also tried folding them in manually, and then opening again with the button. I hear the click that is supposed to signify theyre in the correct position, but the result is the same, about a 1/4 movement and then both mirrors stop. Any ideas? I havent driven the car in a while but they were working okay just a few months back.
Thanks!!!

Re: 03 Nav - Mirrors start to fold but stop

I tried resyncing mirrors. The directions I found basically say to manually move them to the click point, and the open / close. Problem is they only start to budge each direction. Im not sure what motor would control this function, or if theres maybe just not enough juice reaching them to push through...

Is this on all mirrors? Could be the selector switch.

Worth a try for anyone having this problem if other suggestions fail.

Wait for the mirrors to fold out before starting or start after folding out sometimes they get outta whack when u start it all the power is transferred to the starter.
