Power Mirrors



Diagnosis & Testing
  1. Check the fuses for the mirror circuit. Verify there is 12 volts at the fuse terminal. If voltage is not present, check the wiring.
  2.  
  3. Disconnect the outside rearview mirror switch.
  4.  
  5. Probe the battery positive voltage circuit (terminal E) of the power mirror switch with a test lamp that is connected to ground. Connect a test lamp between the battery positive voltage circuit of the power mirror switch harness connector and the ground circuit (terminal D) of the power mirror switch harness connector. The test lamp should light in both cases. If not, check the wiring.
  6.  
  7. Connect terminal D of the mirror motor connector to ground. Connect 12 volts to each of the motor control terminals (E, F, G and H). The mirror should move in each position; if not, replace the mirror.
  8.  
  9. If all tests are normal but the mirror does not function, replace the switch.
