Power Outside Mirrors

Print

GENERAL DESCRIPTION



The power mirrors are controlled by a switch mounted on the door trim panel, integral of the door handle assembly on Vista series and on the center console on Colt series. Each mirror is moved by an integral set of motors; 1 motor controls the up and down motion, the other controls the left to right motion.

The mirror switch consists of a left-right change over select knob and control knobs. The switch is ready to function only when the ignition switch is in the ACC or ON position. Movement of the mirror is accomplished by the motors located in the mirror housing.
