Question about 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2WD

Power mirror adjustment

I have replaced the drivers side mirror and there doesn't seem to be enough adjustment to get the view high enough. Also, after the replacement, all of the power control operate backwards. Where did I screw up?

SOURCE: no controls on driver side of my 2006 trailblazer

sounds like your drivers door module either fried or lost power, if you can get it scanned it should come up with a trouble code, or if your inclined, you can check the connectors on the module for the switches and make sure they are in all the way. just gently pull up on the trim around the switches starting at the rear of the trim, 2 clips hold it in place, it should pop out, then you can check the connectors

SOURCE: how to replace a driver side power mirror on a

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 and mirror. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror assembly onto the door

Why is my heated auto dimming driver side and rear view mirror getting dark when driving


Look in the fuse box for the fuse it will likely have other things on it but nothing to high voltage .
Pull the fuse and see what happens .
Honestly I have never heard of this .
Unless the mirrors lit or damaged somehow from to much heat damaging the coating on the back of the glass making it not a mirror any more .
This sounds like a factory defect

Pretty sure the mirror switch is the culprit(I'm assuming the joystick and selector switch are all one piece).

What's your problem? The side view mirrors on my 2002 Chevy Tahoe do not adjust using the toggle located on the driver side door panel.


The switch is a contact type. When you move the switch it complete the circuit by connect the two contacts points. After some time the switches wear out simply replace the switch.

Driver's side view mirror mechanism ... cable or manual?


Unless the 1999 uses a different mirror from my '96, if it has an inside adjuster lever it's cables in the mirror. You can find aftermarket replacements for around $30 to $40 for Saturns.

Side View Electric mirror can't adjust up enough for my height


You can manually push the mirror left or righ or up and down. It just ratchets on the plastic screw adjusters. It won't do any damage.
If you have floding mirros, make sure they are locked into position.

Rear view mirrors


It's usually a mechanical problem and they really aren't repairable.

I replaced the ones on my 83 Celica GT with replacement units that I bought on-line from Redneck Auto Parts for about $60 each.

Rear View Mirrors Adjustment


The Chrysler voyager van you have has manual mirrors. If it would have power mirrors the controls would be mounted on the drivers side door or the dash panel beside the headlight switch.
