I have a 1997 Ram that had the same problem. The good news is that it can be fixed. the bad news is that you will have to remove your interior door panels and mirrors to do so. Inside the portion of the mirror that bolts to the truck there are a couple of screws that maintain tension on the round swing arm of the mirror. Disassemble your mirrors, tighten the screws and you'll be back in business.

How do I fix the electric rear view mirror


Most are not fixable...listen to hear if you hear any movement in the mirror you are working on...if you hear movement but it is not moving then the assembly needs replaced... if you dont have movement check to see if cycling the switch to opposite mirror engages opposite side....if the other moves the one you are working on doesn't then it is the moter in the mirror or a bad switch

This sounds like a typical Ram radiator problem. Im willing to bet it does'nt overheat quick. It does it slowly. Even while at highway speeds. If so change the radiator.

Heated mirror on 04 explorer cracked


are you referring to the heated side mirrors? the power output to the side mirrors is no more than a rear defroster on a car, so I dont think it was what caused your breakage. Pressure on the glass might have been the culprit.

How do you change the mirror on a 96 Dodge Ram 1500?


All D/W-series standard and wide-view exterior mirrors are removed by removing the mounting screws and lifting off the mirror and gasket. Low-profile wide-view mirrors are removed as an assembly by removing the 4 mirror brace mounting screws from the door.


Good luck..
