2000 chevy venture power mirror fuse keeps blowing when trying to ajust mirrors replaced swicth still blows fuse


The most common issue is a wire is grounding out. I can not tell yo how many times i have found a broken wire in the boot between the door and the body, the wires are found in the 1.5" rubber that you can see when opening the door. You will have to pull it out of the door and the body to expose the wires, it is a real pain to fix once you find the bad wire or wires after it is repaired double shrink seal it for a bit more rigidity. only twice have i found the issue was the switch itself, be prepared for a very time consuming task, after the repair be sure to push both of the ends of the rubber sleeve all the way back in. Be sure you check for rough or sharp edges before putting the boot back in place. Good luck, hope this helps.

My power mirrors on my 2012 Chevy Malibu and I found the fuse for it which was blown. I replaced it and went to use the mirrors again and the fuse blew again. What is the problem?


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.

2008 Chevrolet Malibu 2LT mirror fuse keeps blowing


Remove the door panel and isconnect the mirror and see if the fuse still blows, if it does the wiring is at fault to the mirror, if no fuse issue the mirror motor is shorted.

2004 Lexus keeps blowing ECU-B fuse


A bad outside mirror motor will also cause that fuse to blow. Is your fuse blowing when you adjust the mirrors or when you put the car in reverse? If yes, then the mirror motor is the problem.

The wiring harness to the mirrors is likely rubbed through, pull the door panel off on the driver side first and check the mirror harness.

Both elec door mirrors stopped responding same tme, why?


First, make sure you do not have the mirror control switch in the "neutral" position. If it is, neither mirror will work. If the switch is in the correct position to operate each mirror and neither of them work, the next thing I would check would be the MIRRORS fuse (2 Amp) located in the Body Control Module Fuse Block under the right side of the dash near the blower motor. If the fuse is blown, you probably have one of your mirror circuits shorting to ground. In this case, I would replace the fuse and see if it blows again when I operate each mirror. If one side works and the fuse blows when trying to operate the other side, then you at least know which mirror circuit is shorted and you can diagnose accordingly. If the fuse blows immediately (without operating the switch), or if the fuse is not blown, then you most likely have a defective mirror control switch or a broken wire in the umbilical that goes between the body and the driver's door.

When I try to use the power mirrors the fuse blows.


A common problem with a short in the mirror circuit is the wiring that comes from the body to the door. When you open the door you will see a wire loom between the door hinges. If the fuse blows when attempting to adjust either mirror it would be on the drivers side. If the fuse blows only when adjusting the right mirror check the loom on the passenger side. From bending back and forth it is common that one or more of the wires in the loom have broken and possible shorted together. That would be the first place I would start to look to find this problem.
