If the machine is saying there is a move out of the machine limits this is what the problem is.

Is the fixture located in the center of the bed?

Is the datum position the centre of the car in the Y axis?

Are you using the same datum for both sides of the car?

Have you mirrored the correct axis?

Steves questions are all valid, and need thinking about...

If you have set the front corner of the car as your datum, then Mirroring in Y will require you to shift the Y datum to the back corner of the car, etc..
