Cigarette Lighter/Side View Mirrors...

I don't really know when it started happening, but one day I ended up realizing that my electronic side view mirrors ended up stop working, later that day I also realized that my cigarette lighter did the same, but I ended up not using either for like a couple weeks so I can't really explain when and what i did to it before hand...

Any Ideas?

If the cigarette lighter stopped working also then I would first suspect a fuse blown. or just a bad fuse connection. try this first. hope this is all it is because it would be an easy fix.

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

How do i find out if its the cigarette lighter port or a fuse that needs replacing on my 2008 Mazda 5?


I pulled fuse 4 from the inside fuse box on the passenger side dashboard, but quickly realized it is for the rear power outlet, not the cigarette lighter outlet. The cigarette lighter outlet is fuse number 6. They are both blue 15A fuses.

My radio, ac, heat, cigarette lighter, clock went out. Does anyone know which fuse I need to change? I don't have a manual book to tell me which exact fuse I need to replace.


Sounds like the most obvious place to check is the cigarette lighter and its fuse, many times folks stuff a penny in the lighter port without realizing it and cause the fuse to constantly blow.
Now finding the fuse panel is fun....not really....buty it is there don't give up!!
under the dash where you rest your left foot on a drive...the fuise panel is to the left side kick panel half buried by the carpeting, it is has a black flat cover marked fuse, open it and the whole fuse arrangements are clearly and consisely marked for replacement.
Happy Motoring!!

Sideview mirrors dont move certain ways.


I researched the maintenance manual. The fuse you need to replace is fuse 20 in the under dash fuse box. It controls side windows, washer motor, rear view dim function, and possible seat memory. There are a couple that link to the mirrors, but this is the one for this problem.
