Power Mirrors Function Test

  1. Disconnect the 13P connector (A) from the power mirror switch (B).
  1. Choose the appropriate test based on the symptom:
    • Both mirrors don't work, go to Step 4 .
    • Right mirror doesn't work, go to Step 6 .
    • Left mirror doesn't work, go to Step 7 .
    • Retractable mirrors don't work, go to Step 8 .
Both mirrors
  1. Measure the voltage between the No. 2 terminal and body ground with the ignition switch ON (II). There should be battery voltage.
    • If there is no battery voltage, check for:
    • -
      Blown No. 10 (7.5 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box.
      -
      An open in the BRN wire.
    • If there is battery voltage, go to Step 5 .
  1. Check for continuity between the No. 6 terminal and body ground.
    There should be continuity.
Right mirror
  1. Connect the No. 2 terminal to the No. 11 terminal, and the No. 5 (then No. 13) terminal to the No. 6 terminal with jumper wires, and turn the ignition switch to ON (II). The right mirror should tilt down (then swing left).
    • If the mirror does not tilt down (or does not swing left), check for an open in the GRN (or BLU) wire between the right mirror and the power mirror switch 13P connector. If the wire is OK, check the right mirror actuator.
    • If the mirror neither tilts down nor swings left, repair an open in the LT GRN wire.
    • If the mirror works properly, check the power mirror switch.
Left mirror
  1. Connect the No. 2 terminal to the No. 10 terminal, and the No. 5 (then No. 12) terminal to the No. 6 terminal with jumper wires, and turn the ignition switch to ON (II). The left mirror should tilt down (then swing left).
    • If the mirror does not tilt down (or does not swing left), check for an open in the GRN (or PNK) wire between the left mirror and the power mirror switch 13P connector. If the wire is OK, check the left mirror actuator.
    • If the mirror neither tilts down nor swings left, repair an open in the ORN wire.
    • If the mirror works properly, check the power mirror switch.
Retractable Power Mirror
  1. Connect the No. 2 and No. 7 (or No. 8) terminals and the No. 8 (or No. 7) and the No. 6 terminals with jumper wires, and turn the ignition switch to ON (II). The both mirror should retract (or extend).
    • If both mirrors do not work, check for:
    • -
      Blown No. 10 (7.5 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box.
      -
      An open in the GRY or YEL wire.
      -
      Poor ground (G501).
    • If only one fails to work, check its retractable mirror actuator.
