Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Hey, I have a 2000 silverado and the power mirrors on both sides won't work. Only the mirrors don't work. I've checked the fuses and they are good. Any ideas?
Silverado power mirror/s do not work.
Assuming you have power to the switch, the switch contacts are bad. Each contact may go bad at different times.Pry the switch panel from the door, disconnect the plug to the switch, a small screwdriver may help. Remove the switch by pushing the retaining lugs in & pry out.
Now take it to a clean workbench along with 2 small thin screwdrivers.
Insert 1 driver in beside one of the keeper lugs & pry slightly, continue to the next until the switch comes apart. No springs will fly out.
You will see a control knob & housing, A blue vinyl like cover, Lift the blue cover off, now you will see the contacts on the board.
Take a cotton swab with carb cleaner & scrub the contacts, even a piece of 320 sandpaper.
Next, on the under side of the blue vinyl like cover there brass like contacts fixed to the cover, they need cleaning.
I cut a few 1/8'''x1/8'' # 320 sandpaper,A 1/8'' dowel & hot glued a piece of s-paper on the 1/8'' x6'' dowel.
I then carefully slowly spun the s-paper on the contact. then to the next contact with a new piece of sandpaper & so on.
Lastly cleaning with carb cleaner & blowing dry.
Reassemble, hookup & test Walla! both mirrors work. Time, 20 to 30 min.

Check the power on the switch. To do this remove the mirror from the door and connect your test leads from your multimeter (set to DC 20 V) to the connector coming from the mirror after you disconnect the mirror. You should have 12+ volts(you may have to have the key on in the ignition). If you have nothing then your switch has gone bad. This is a common problem, assuming the fuses are all good.
Hope this has helped, please remember to rate this fix.
