Question about 2005 Honda Civic
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
