Roll down the window completely. There should be 2 screws to remove on the inside of the panel.I believe there is one just behind the inner door handle and I think one on the door panel arm rest. There may be one more so if you see it, remove all of them. Then grab the bottom of the the panel with both hands (palms up) and pry out with a couple of quick hard tugs and the panel clips should snap free. Do this to the bottom, both sides and the top by the mirror allowing the panel to hang. look behind the panel and disconnect the power door lock and the power window connections. To remove the panel completely, push up from the bottom and remove. Keep an eye on the panel clips because they sometimes like to lock back into place while you pop the others out and it can be frustrating unless you are aware of it. There should be 3 nuts holding the mirror on the door to remove that will free the mirror. Reverse the steps to reinstall the panel.

Why do I have no auto night headlights, no electronic mirror adjustments and no auto locks. They all quit on my 3/96 4.6L single cab f150 lariat, why?


after all fuses and relays verified are working it sounds like you have keyless entry on the door panel with a keypad and in either case theres a driver door module inside the door panel this may have gone or the fuse for that has blown I'm ssuming that you have the owners manual with the diagrams if not ford owners .com register then download your manual then go to roadside emergencies and the fuse and power distribution box diagrams are there also this could be you headlight switch so if the fuses are all good then lookat the door module on the drivers side next to the speaker or the headlight switch do the windows work also check the master window switch this is because all components have some borrowed power from other wire circuits so look carefully at all of these even a corroded wire or contact can cause havoc on other systems clean al and a light dab or spray of wd40 will help you good luck Stephen

What's your problem? The side view mirrors on my 2002 Chevy Tahoe do not adjust using the toggle located on the driver side door panel.


The switch is a contact type. When you move the switch it complete the circuit by connect the two contacts points. After some time the switches wear out simply replace the switch.

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 the connections to the vehicle.
    • Check the ignition switch position.
