Default Power Mirrors - not working

I went to adjust my power mirrors and neither is working. Power windows work just fine. Are they on a common fuse? IF not which fuse is for the power mirrors since the manual does not indicate that.

Thanks for the help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I am experiencing this same problem. Checked the switch wires for power and there was none. Checked what I think was all the fuses and all seemed good. Searched for answers on here and not having any luck. Also noticed my warning chime is not working either. Anybody know where to go from here?

For the power mirrors not working you probably need to replace the mirror switch http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trks...at=0&_from=R40

Mine never worked from the day I bought it, then I bought the part off of ebay and now they work fine. swapping this part out took literally 5 minutes to do, I think it was just two screws that needed to be taken out of the door handle and then you could remove the switch.

Default Re: Power Mirrors - not working

My daughter's Ion had a problem come up with the power mirror when the weather started to cool down. It wasn't the fuse. I drove her car recently to check this out. It turns out that the switch is getting less touch-sensitive. When I sharply "tap" the switch quadrants, then the mirror motors work. Gently pressing doesn't work. I am going to remove the switch, and clean it up and spray in some "DeOxit" into it, and that hopefully will cure the sensitivity (or lack thereof) issue.... WD40 might also clean the internals of the switch, but Caig DeOxit actually removes oxidation on contacts.

Caig DeOxit has solved a number of switch and contact related issues for me over the years. It was suggested by a friend of mine who was an electronics service tech. I believe you can find it on Amazon, or at any electronics supply house (not at Radio Shack). I also use it on oxidized light bulb contacts -- basically it can be used anywhere in an electrical circuit that has some kind of mechanical connection.

I hope this helps....

WD-40 is a wonderful product (like Duct Tape) but (just like Duct Tape) it shouldn't be used for Electrical Repairs. It may work in a pinch but not the proper tool for the job.
