I have a vauxhall astra 2002 1.6 sxi. Ive just put in a mirror switch as the last was broken when I purchased car. The switch has been tested and is working but the mirrors dont work? Cant find a fuse which is specifically for that. Can anybody help?
Check your fuse for the windows and locks, water has shorted out the switches or cased a fuse to blow. But check the fuse first. The fuse location would be listed in the manual or on the inside of the fuse door panel.
Try check the fuses. If they are ok, then try checking the switch panel, it might have accumulated some water or liquid that you used which later caused some short circuit or corroded the terminals, Meaning there is no complete circuit for the mirrors.
i kind of dought there would be 1 fuse for one mirror if anything there be 1fuse for both mirrors. chances are what happend is this, they work like your rear window defroster on the rear window you see little wires that run across the window, same with mirror, the wire that heats them little wires most likely broke.
check behind the mirror glass there are little plastic rods that are easily broken when mirror gets hit or moved manually. mirror should pop out when pulled carefully by one of corners. be careful not to put to much pressure on the glass when pulling outward
Look in the Engine bay fuse box at Fuse #12 this should be for the power windows.
If this checks out OK, it could be a fault with a bad ground wire in driver's side door harness.
You should be able to pry the runbber boot from the drivers door, and check the larger Black wire that goes through it. These have been known to break after a few years use. If it is the cable, cut neatly, strip the ends anu use a crimp splice.
Hope this is a quick and easy fix for you.
