I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, first, I need the year of your Isuzu, and I need the last 8 of the vin number as well to pull the schematics.

I also need to know if all other mirror functions work correctly or not

Hi Eric
It is a 2012 KB 300 d-teq Double cab
Yes, only the left mirror is doing this
After 90 000 km I have not had a single other problem of any kind whatsoever
It is a brilliant vehicle

Ok, I can pull the vehicle up by the last 8 of the vin, but no schematics for the mirror so I will need to opt out and see if another expert can help

Hi im kevin is there a chance mirror has been hit at any point?

HI Kev
My apology for not reacting soon as I have been out of town unexpectedly for a while.
I do believe the mirror was knocked back in the car park at the mall which may be the cause.
I have been told it may be a faulty earth but if so where do i find it.
Enjoy your dayVIC
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Its unlikely to be an earth as every function on mirror shares the same earth its normally a damaged mirror position sensor witch is part of mirror you will need to replace mirror body to cure .this is quite common if they have taken a hit
