On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls and your mirror. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror to the door

Power Mirror Wiring Schematic 92 Buick Lesabre 1992 thru 1997 & More


Here is a schematic which my dad & I devised over the course of two hours for the power mirror wiring on our 1992 lesabre, as we couldn't find any wiring info to handle this issue.

http://www.iqmetals.com/else/lesabre/

That's our/my website, and that folder will let you see & get all of the pictures & diagrams

The wiring harness for the power mirror switch was acquired through Rock Auto, and the wire lettering scheme was embossed onto the plastic.
Here's a written breakout of the wires & their locations/purposes.

A= Ground
B= Common Left/Right Motion(Splits to both sides)
C= Common Up/Down Motion(Splits to both sides)
D= Left Side - Left/Right Motion
E= Left Side - Up/Down Motion
F= Right Side - Up/Down Motion
G= Right Side - Left/Right Motion
H= Positive 12V

Now Assuming that all of the power mirrors are wired & color coordinated the same, that would connect....
B -- Light Blue wire of Both Mirrors
C -- Green wire of Both Mirrors
D -- Gray wire of Drivers Side Mirror
E -- Dark Blue wire of Drivers Side Mirror
F -- Dark Blue wire of Passengers Side Mirror
G -- Gray wire of Passengers Side Mirror

In our circumstance we hooked up the power and ground inline with the power window Power(Pink) & Ground(Black) wires which are nearby in the door. The fuse/circuit should easily handle the minor load of power mirrors, even if you were using the windows and mirrors at the very same time... a rarity I do suppose.

My right mirror on 325 i 2005 doesn't work. When i change my seat position with the memory, the seats goes on but not the mirrors. I can adjust my left mirror but not the rigth one; it never move.


I would safely assume your right mirror may be inoperable period then by your statement you are leaving the switch for the mirrors in the middle during switching correct and during adjustment are switching to R/L mirror on the switch? Mirrors are on the same circuit so both should be operable. Have the mirror checked for operation before heading any further. I Think you will find during this its unplugged from its source of power or inoperable period and needs replaced. Remember to rate my solution and leave testimonial PS please purchase you a Owners Manual for your car you will thank me later.

2003 gmc mirrors do not fold in


The power mirrors are controlled by a module (computer) DDM - drivers door module an the PDM - passenger door module .
Folding Mirror System
Folding Mirror System Controls
The folding mirror system requires signals from 2 separate switches. The mirror select switch must be in the neutral/fold position and the mirror direction switch must be activated to the left/extend or right/retract positions. Both switches are integrated into the DDM and provide direct signals.
Folding Mirror System Operation
Upon receipt of the required switch inputs the DDM will supply battery voltage and ground to the mirror fold motor control circuits to perform the requested extend or retract function. The DDM will also send a class 2 message to the PDM indicating the requested function. The PDM will supply battery voltage and ground to the mirror fold motor control circuits to perform the requested extend or retract function.

Power Mirror System
Power Mirror System Components
The power mirror system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module--Class 2 module with integrated switches and requires programming when replaced
• The passenger door module--Class 2 module with integrated switches, requires programming when replaced and also contains the RFA receiver
• The power mirror direction switch--Integrated into DDM and is a 4-position momentary switch that provides a signal input to the DDM for up, down, left/extend and right/retract with a mirror switch activation
• The mirror select switch--Integrated into DDM and is a 3-position switch that allows the operator to select the left or right mirror and also a neutral/fold position
• The left outside power mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
• The right outside power mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
• The body control module--Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced, serves as the power mode master and is the main message handler
• The DDM 10A fuse--Located in the I/P fuse block and is hot at all times
• The PDM 10A fuse--Located in the I/P fuse block and is hot at all times
• The memory switch, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied power by the DDM and provides a voltage signal to the DDM upon a switch activation
• The horizontal and vertical position sensors, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied a 5-volt and low reference by the DDM/PDM and provide a variable voltage signal to the DDM/PDM that is proportional to mirror position
• The park neutral position switch, if equipped with memory mirrors--Provides transmission gear selection information to the PCM and is used for memory recall and mirror tilt in reverse functions
• The powertrain control module, if equipped with memory mirrors--Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced and provides Class 2 message indicating transmission gear selection
• The driver information center (DIC), if equipped with memory mirrors--Part of the instrument cluster which is a Class 2 module that requires programming when replaced and is used to personalize the memory recall and mirror tilt in reverse functions
• Fold motor in each of the outside mirrors, if equipped with power fold mirrors--Provides extend and retract movements of the mirror and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
Each of the outside power mirrors contains 2 reversible motors to provide horizontal and vertical movement of the mirror glass. The vertical motor operates the up and down directions and the horizontal motor operates the left and right directions. If equipped with power folding mirrors, each outside power mirror will contain a reversible fold motor to operate the extend and retract functions. Each of the mirror motors are circuit breaker protected.
DTC B1722
The driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM) switch the mirror fold motor control circuits to battery voltage and ground in response to mirror extend or retract command.

• If DTCs B1580 and B1590 are both set, the left 5 volt reference or low reference circuit(s) maybe open, shorted to ground or battery.
• If DTCs B1610 and B1620 are both set, the right 5 volt reference or low reference circuit(s) maybe open, shorted to ground or battery.
Need a factory scan tool to test !
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With the scan tool, observe the mirror horizontal and vertical position parameters in the Driver Door Module (DDM) and Passenger Door Module (PDM) data lists.
Operate both the left and right mirrors through the full range of movements.
Does the scan tool indicate that the left and right mirror horizontal and vertical position parameters are within the specified range?
0.50-4.75 V.
Your best bet , take it to a GMC , Chevy , buick or cadillac dealer

Side View Electric mirror can't adjust up enough for my height


You can manually push the mirror left or righ or up and down. It just ratchets on the plastic screw adjusters. It won't do any damage.
If you have floding mirros, make sure they are locked into position.

Right Hand mirror doesn't retract


i would check the switch first and also the passenger side door jamb wire harness also i know it sounds simple but ALWAYS check ALL of you fuses before beginning any electrical fault tracing, try removing the switch and identify which wire powers the mirror and manually jump power with a paper clip to the mirror in question there should only be three wires one will have power and the others will be left and right mirror retraction if this works your switch is bad if not go to the mirror and power that manually and if no dice you got a bad motor -jeff
