There are micro switches located in the mirrors. A metal tab is broken on one of the mirrors micro switches. Take off the painted cover to your side mirrors and remove a black plastic cover that has wires coming out. The switch will come out with the cover. Inspect for damage. If the metal tab is broken off then a new side mirror will need to be purchased. Could be the drivers side or the passengers side, caution when removing the painted covers, the tabs break if your not careful with them.

2001 explorer sport trac side mirros not working"


did you check power mirror fuse? if ok, remove your power mirror switch at the driver side and clean the contact area, take a test light and check all wires for good connection. one by one test the voltage output,-/+ by pressing the switch, if all wires have output -/+ , and mirrors still not working, remove the switch connector, find out the three wires going to power mirror and direct it to - and positive voltage alternately, if the mirrors move, repair the wire that cut on the moving area, if still not moving repair or replace the two motors inside the mirror

How do you replace the glass in the driver side mirro?


Try Pep Boys or Autozone for a replacement mirror glass. They come in many different sizes cut to fit many different mirrors. Get one that is the same size as your old one, peal off the back sticky tape, and stick it onto the broken mirror glass if it's still there. No need to replace the entire mirror.

Front driver side window problem in ford edge


try this, it may or may not work. Using the window button, put the window down and continue to hold the down switch while you count to 10. Release the button. Next put the window up with the window button and continue to hold the button in the up position while you count to ten again. Then put the window down and hold the button and count to ten again. The window operates on current draw to know when it is closed. This should retrain the window to know its open and closed limits.
But once again this may not work but it is worth a try. Hope this helps.

PROGRAM PRIUS GARAGE DOOR HOW DO I PROGRAM THE BUTTONS ON THE PRIUS' REAR VIEW MIRROR TO OPEN THE GARAGE DOOR


There was a minor change for mine to work.. see below..

- you must park your Prius close to the gate opener, leaving it running (obviously not in the way of the gate closing)
- Hold the button the the mirror and then push your garage door remote button and hold until the light on the mirror starts to flasyh fast. THIS programs the button on the mirror, but not the garage opener - yet (this was key for me)
- locate the "learning button" on the opener itself
- press the "learning button" on your gate opener and then get back into the Prius within 30 seconds (more time than it sounds) and press the SAME Homelink button you just programmed above. I don't recall how long I held the pre-programmed button, but the light will flash as I recall.
- Then, when working the garage door, you may need to hold the mirror button for a good second for it to work - but I had tried for months to get mine to work, and finally after reading many posts, the above sequence worked on my 2008 Prius with my Lift Master, Security + rolling codes garage opener.

Just - program the button on the mirror with your remote FIRST.. the garage opener will not work.. then use the Learn button on the garage opener and the SAME BUTTON you just programmed.. and it worked great for me. Not programming the mirror button first will not work. Using only the Learn button will not work. You must program the mirror first with the remote, then use the learn button and the SAME button on the mirror. Hope this helps.
