If you have power mirrors on both sides and they both only work side to side, most likely the switch.Highly unlikely but it is possible for both sides up and down to go out. without a wiring diagram and a test light you would be best to attempt to replace the control.

SOURCE: both side power mirrors won't work on 2000 silverado

Silverado power mirror/s do not work.
Assuming you have power to the switch, the switch contacts are bad. Each contact may go bad at different times.Pry the switch panel from the door, disconnect the plug to the switch, a small screwdriver may help. Remove the switch by pushing the retaining lugs in & pry out.
Now take it to a clean workbench along with 2 small thin screwdrivers.
Insert 1 driver in beside one of the keeper lugs & pry slightly, continue to the next until the switch comes apart. No springs will fly out.
You will see a control knob & housing, A blue vinyl like cover, Lift the blue cover off, now you will see the contacts on the board.
Take a cotton swab with carb cleaner & scrub the contacts, even a piece of 320 sandpaper.
Next, on the under side of the blue vinyl like cover there brass like contacts fixed to the cover, they need cleaning.
I cut a few 1/8'''x1/8'' # 320 sandpaper,A 1/8'' dowel & hot glued a piece of s-paper on the 1/8'' x6'' dowel.
I then carefully slowly spun the s-paper on the contact. then to the next contact with a new piece of sandpaper & so on.
Lastly cleaning with carb cleaner & blowing dry.
Reassemble, hookup & test Walla! both mirrors work. Time, 20 to 30 min.

How can i fix my temperature problme on 2000 Silverado ?


Really? You care that much? Probably the sensor which tells it the temp, but could be the wiring or the display itself.
Does anything else not work? Check fuses.

Drivers mirror will not work


First you can take the triangle shaped plastic off from inside behind the mirror if you know what I mean .. and there are three nuts take them off and DONT drop them .. unplug the mirror and see if you have power from your switch coming out to the mirror or the heater with a tester ... this might save you alot of problems and its simple. You might be able to just unplug the mirror with out unbolting it from the door and test the wires from there. look it over .. thanks Jerry
