Question about 2000 Acura TL

Drivers seat heater, sideview mirror switch

I have a 2000 Acura TL and the drivers seat heater does not operate at all.  Also, the side view mirrors do not operate from the switch.  Seems both issues started at the same time.  What do you think I need to check.  I have checked the fuses inside the car.  Thanks and happy holidays!

    I need to know what to check with my 99 tl drivers side seat heater.Switch light comes on , fuses are good, but no heat. I heard there's a relay somewhere that might be bad. I haven't checked yet. Does anyone know where this relay might be located?

The wires in the seat heater will burn out if they are left on HI for too long. You can take the seat out of the car, remove the seat covering, and solder some new wires in place of the fried ones. Then put it all back together and hope you don't get a shock in your **** when you flip the switch for the first time. I just did this to my 2000 TL today and it took about 3 hrs to get it all worked out. For step by step instructions go to: http://joshsworld.com/cars/acura-tl-seat-heater-fix/

Power mirrors only function right and down, 05 acura TL


I belive you are right in saying it is just the direction switch because i have never heard of both mirrors going out just like each other and at the exact same time. you do not need to go to a dealer to get the switch but you can go to any parts store and get it and this will save you about 25-50% off the acura dealers price

Replacement sideview mirror casing


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Sideview mirrors dont move certain ways.


I researched the maintenance manual. The fuse you need to replace is fuse 20 in the under dash fuse box. It controls side windows, washer motor, rear view dim function, and possible seat memory. There are a couple that link to the mirrors, but this is the one for this problem.
