You have a short in the wiring of that fused circuit, or less likely that one of the mirror motors has a short. A short is an unintended path to ground, like an exposed wire touching body metal, or an internal motor failure. If that fuse is only for the mirrors and nothing else, it will be easier to find. A likely place will be in the door openings where the wires can get stretched and chafed. Pull the protective boot away from the wires where they enter the door, and check carefully. You may need to get to the mirror motors and to the switch for them. If everything looks okay, better get a multi-meter to check sections of the wires for continuity. A wiring diagram will be needed to find the right color wires that you will be looking for. I am guessing that each motor will have 4 wires to it, 2 for side to side, and 2 for up and down. These 4 wires will come from the switch on the driver's door that operates them. Power travels from the fuse to the switch, and then to the mirrors, as the switch operates them. The ground wire for the mirrors will originate at the switch, or it may be a shared common ground at the driver's master switch for the mirrors and the power windows. The short may be in any of these wires, or in the switch (evident at the connector to the switch as melted plastic, perhaps), or a short in one of the mirror motors. Good luck and good hunting.

2001 chevy malibu dome light not working cant find the right fuse and power mirrors not working either


Dome light runs off the interior fuse. Dash, radio and others also. If the work, could be a bad bulb, switch or wire. Mirrors power comes from the master switch. Could be the mirror switch or mirror motors. If both quit working at the same time, look to the switch. If they died separately, After time. Replace the mirror assembly if you want them to work. They can be adjusted by hand.Push on the mirror.

2001 chevy malibu fuel pump fuse keeps blowing


Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.
You could unplug the harness at the tank to verify.

Check your owners manual for the location of a SECOND radio fuse. There are usually TWO fuses for the radio. One is the for the circuit to operate the radio when the ignition switch is turned on, the other is when the switch is off. The second one provides power to the radio when the key is off. It keeps the clock running and your radio presets. The radio requires BOTH fuses to operate properly.

Good Luck . . .
