Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again
if the fuse is good, check the switch that controls the side to side adjustment, these go bad pretty often for some reason,, try flipping it back and forth a few times, and try it,, if that doesn't get it,, your going to have to remove that switching control,, test it for continuity when the passenger side is connected, if it has none, replace the switch
Probably a blown fuse. Find the fuse box, (make sure car if not running, key out of ignition), open fuse box cover. The cover usually has a description of what fuse does each power task. Find the radio/ACC fuses and removing them one at a time (don't have 2 out at once), hold them up to the light and look for a broken band inside the fuse. If you find one, replace it with a new one of the same size and amperage. It is the cheapest place to start.
check to see if there is a fuse for the mirrors and replace if bad.
check mirror control switch to make sure its working, also check contacts and make sure there clean, u can use a volt meter to see if there is power going to and from the switch, but if both mirrors are not working the rule of thumb is it must be something that would effect both and not just one mirror such as bad fuse bad switch or a break in the power line goting to the switch.
Here is repair information from Mitchells: 1) Disconnect power mirror switch connector. Connect test light between power mirror switch harness connector terminal "A" (orange wire) and ground. If test light illuminates, go to the next step. If test light does not illuminate, repair open in orange wire between power mirror switch and righ rear power distribution center fuse block No. 1 (located under left side of rear seat). 2) Connect test light between power mirror switch harness connector terminals "A" (orange wire) and "J" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, check for poor connections at the power mirror switch. If connections are okay, replace power mirror switch. If test light does not illuminate, repair open in Black wire between power mirror switch and ground.
There is relay in the fuse box under the hood that Ford had a problem with in late 2003. I don't know if was a recall or not. You might check on line for recalls for your year of truck. It sound like the relay in the fuse box under the hood my good friend had the same problem with his '04. Hope this helps.
I have allot of experience with these mirrors, if your just stopped working it lasted longer than most, many never even made it out of factory warranty, the problem is the mirror not any fuse, the cost of the new unit is around $200.
