Re: clock and side mirrors
The fuse block is usually under the dashboard, as well as additional fuse box under the hood. Your owners manual would give u that info, if u don't have one, it can be purchased @ Lexus site, don't know how much though. If fuses aren't labeled as u say, just pull them out 1 at a time and check to see which one is burned out. An auto parts store would probably help u locate the fuse box under the dash, (which is where I think the blown fuse is) they want to sell parts, and offer a lot of free services to customers such as testing components, installing wipers etc. good luck countrycurt0

is this a plow truck? Either way i would start with the switch. Try doing simple continuity tests on the switch. if power doesnt flow when the switch is pushed in a direction, then replace the switch. If its not that i would try jumping wires on the mirror it self to test it. You have to know which wire is ground coming from the mirror.
First, make sure you do not have the mirror control switch in the "neutral" position. If it is, neither mirror will work. If the switch is in the correct position to operate each mirror and neither of them work, the next thing I would check would be the MIRRORS fuse (2 Amp) located in the Body Control Module Fuse Block under the right side of the dash near the blower motor. If the fuse is blown, you probably have one of your mirror circuits shorting to ground. In this case, I would replace the fuse and see if it blows again when I operate each mirror. If one side works and the fuse blows when trying to operate the other side, then you at least know which mirror circuit is shorted and you can diagnose accordingly. If the fuse blows immediately (without operating the switch), or if the fuse is not blown, then you most likely have a defective mirror control switch or a broken wire in the umbilical that goes between the body and the driver's door.
Since the locks stopped working as well, my guess is a fuse is blown. The first thing you should always do when accessories or lights or electrical things stop working is check all of your fuses (sometimes you'll have them in the engine bay as well as under the dash). I can't tell you how many times I've spent hours trying to track down an electrical problem only to discover that work I was previously doing had made a fuse blow.
It may also be a bad relay but I'd start with the fuses first.
the fuse for the mirrors is in the fuse block inside the car on the left side of the dash-however the mirrors do not fold in with the switch,you fold them in with your hand-usually for storage(car cover)
