These switches can be replaced independently that is what i would recommend. also try a local bone yard that is a lot cheaper than the oem factory replacement

Is you car fitted with a childlock safety switch for the rear windows?

If so the windows will work from the front but will be locked out to the rear seat passenger

The windows are controlled through a computer module referred to as the BCM, it must be scanned to determine why it is not letting the windows operate.

My side mirros dont work


The exterior mirrors:
  • are controlled by power controls on the LH front door trim panel.
  • are of a foldaway design.
  • may contain turn signal indicators.
  • may be heated when the heated back window glass is activated.
  • may have a programmable recall memory option.
Driver Seat Module
The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Exterior Mirror Operation
The power exterior mirrors are controlled by the DSM and are operational all the time, whether the ignition switch is on or off. Using the power exterior mirror switch, the driver can adjust the driver and passenger exterior mirrors four ways.

    • Check to make sure the program card is correctly installed.
    • Check the connections to the vehicle.
    • Check the ignition switch position.
