Power Mirror Switch

Print

The power mirrors are controlled by a single switch assembly, located on the instrument panel. The motors that operate the mirrors are part of the mirror assembly and cannot be replaced separately.

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.
