Question about 2005 Honda Civic

2005 Honda Civic A/C inop

I was trying to reconnect my AT side mirror which broke off, with part of the wires still attached to the mirror, part to the door, and don't know much about electrical stuff at all... there are three different colored wires and instead of connecting them to their corresponding colors, I intertwined all of them, I mean all six metal touching (3 on one side, 3 on the other)- and then I cranked the key without turning on the engine. Well, this obviously didn't work, and a few minutes later I was driving to the library (can't remember if the a/c, heat, and defrost worked then), but definitely noticed none were working on the way home. No air coming out at all, and the lights that usually come on when you hit the defrost, circulate, or other buttons don't come on at all. Thought I had blown a fuse but I checked all they are ok- any suggestions for what may be wrong and if I can fix it myself? Any info is greatly appreciated- thanks kindly for your time.

OK.....First, unhook all the wires to the mirror....if wire ends are exposed with metal conn. or bare wire, either tape each one up with electrical tape, or cut off ends with sissors or wire cutters. If your A/C is on the same circuit as your mirrors, ck. the fuse panel on the inside of the car (look at the legend in the owners manual under fuse panel.) You may also find that there is a maxi fuse under the hood somewhere ( A large fuse that carries a whole circuit of items) again, ck your owners manual. If you can locate the relay, pull it out, and put it back in to verify connection. Another possibility is the connector at the compressor (Turn engine off first...also beware of electric fans that can come on without warning) In addition, find the A/c dryer/reciever (Looks like a silver bottle about the size of a 1 liter coke bottle with lines coming off of it) There will be a connector located somewhere on it that needs to be plugged in or jumped across for the compressor clutch to activate. Good luck...PHB

    Also, as it pertains to a/c compressor, your fan and lights can also be powered by fuses inside the car as well as under the hood!

Honda civic wing mirror indicator replacement

Do you mean the turn indicator located in the mirror assembly? There is no way to replace that other than to replace the entire mirror assembly. I would be checking the wiring harness to the door before replacing the mirror. There could be a broken wire in the umbilical that goes between the body and the door.

I hit a fence and tore off the passenger side mirror this morning. It's hanging by the electrical wires. Called Honda and they said they'd have to order the part. In the meantime, can I do anything to...

No temporary repair, but If you want to remove broken mirror parts, you must remove inner door panel so you can access wiring harness connector and attaching screws. rayo49.

I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey and broke the passenger side mirror. It is still attached and the power still works to move the mirror. But the glass is cracked. Where can I purchase, just the glass mirror...

If you go to a parts house, they can order you a mirror face for around 10 to 15 dollars. It simply sticks to the mirror that is broken with adhesive. It is very permanent and if the mirror is still working and in tact mostly (only broken glass part) it should fix you right up. Look at autozone, oreillys, or even JC Whitney or Pep Boys for example. Been there Done that! :-)Hope that helps.. Thanks!

How do you install a driver side mirror?

hey, I replaced a mirror on a 2002 civic lx coupe.

1) Pry off the small pastic traingular piece from the interior of your door.
2) Disconnect the wiring to the mirror
3) There will be 3 bolts that attach the mirror to the car, remove these and the mirror can be removed. To put on the new mirror just do everything in reverse

Just make sure you order the right mirror, I accidentally order the mirror for the sedan model the first time and they are not interchangable.

Hope this helps
