Question about 1993 Toyota Corolla
I have a 93 toyota corolla sprinter JDM version. The car comes with retractable mirrors but mine stopped retracting sometime ago. One mirror was retracting but the other one wouldn't though i could hear the motors running inside the mirror housing. Recentle replaced that mirros with a used part that would retract when i power it up externally without issues...
Now my problem is once everything is fixed to the car, both the mirrors are no retracting. The mirror glass panel can be adjusted without issues and also both mirrors retract when i power them up externally with a battery...
I'm assuming there is something wrong with the car electrics...
Heard these cars came with a mirror control relay...
does anybody know where this relat is located?
if so how to test whether it's burnt out?
Planning on taking it to a shop but i would be happier knowing what the problem was :)
thakns in advance

If you have checked all the fuses under the dash, Make sure you look at those closest the battery near the engine.
If these test fine, There is probably a cable fault.
If you have a meter, take out the 15A fuse for the lighter, and use a probe between the contacts and ground (steelwork/ Negative)
You should get 12V or thereabouts. If you don't - check engine bay area fuses in the same manner one by one, then replace after testing.
Pull the fuses relating to the radio in the same manner, one by one.
You should be able to identify the fault this way if you are methodical about it.
Hope this resolvesthe problem for you. If it does, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya!

in reality nothings happen, and your saying what do you need to do so you will not encounter this problem again well honestly you cant depend on life on catalytic so i suggest to do your general tune up like changing spark plug,wires,check timing,fuel filter,oil change the way they should be change so it helps the engine burn near stoichiometry because during the oxidation happening in your catalytic if your engine rich or lean or misfiring it could cause a defective catalytic converter.

SOURCE: Seatbelt won't retract
1)move the plastic cover over the seat belt out of the way to gain access to the two mounting bolts for the seat belt mechanism. Use a 10mm wrench and a 14mm wrench and remove the two bolts holding the seat belt mechanism to the body. Use a small drill bit or small screwdriver and make one hole in the plastic cover on each side of the seat belt mechanism (the covers say "do not remove plastic cover". Spray lots of wd40 in each hole. Then exercise the seat belt. When the mechanism allows the belt to be retracted, retract the belt all the way out and exercise the seat belt. Reinstall mechanism with both mounting screws in original position and put plastic cover back in place. Good luck. New seat belt costs $100.00 from dealer and are hard to find working in junk yards. I have fixed several of them this way.
