Two things to check. First, depending which is easier (check that one first) you need to see if you are getting power to the switch itself. If neither mirror works, then the switch is dead, or one of the wires going to the mirror is dead. That is the most likely. The second would be to check if you are getting power out of the fuse box going to the power mirror switch, that way you can help determine if its a wirring problem.

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.

Hello, I want to put heated mirrors on my 1997 chevy tahoe and want to know if I can piggy back off the rear defrost switch. The elements pull 3.8 amps for total. There is the convenience center located...


Yes, you can grab power from the rear defog at the switch or the power wire under the dash at relay for mirrors, most of these trucks come prewired, so if its an option they just add heated mirrors, the wires are all in place on the newer one, check yours and see, the only thing you would need if prewired is the switch and the mirrors.this being a 97 might not be prewired but like you said you can wire it, you have the right idea this way the mirror work when the defrost is on, i will see if i can give you a wiring diagram of the rear defrost. hope this helps.johnjohn2_29.gif

2001 explorer sport trac side mirros not working"


did you check power mirror fuse? if ok, remove your power mirror switch at the driver side and clean the contact area, take a test light and check all wires for good connection. one by one test the voltage output,-/+ by pressing the switch, if all wires have output -/+ , and mirrors still not working, remove the switch connector, find out the three wires going to power mirror and direct it to - and positive voltage alternately, if the mirrors move, repair the wire that cut on the moving area, if still not moving repair or replace the two motors inside the mirror

Power mirrors don't work. Which fuse controls this


Here is repair information from Mitchells:
1) Disconnect power mirror switch connector. Connect test light between power mirror switch harness connector terminal "A" (orange wire) and ground. If test light illuminates, go to the next step. If test light does not illuminate, repair open in orange wire between power mirror switch and righ rear power distribution center fuse block No. 1 (located under left side of rear seat).
2) Connect test light between power mirror switch harness connector terminals "A" (orange wire) and "J" (Black wire). If test light illuminates, check for poor connections at the power mirror switch. If connections are okay, replace power mirror switch. If test light does not illuminate, repair open in Black wire between power mirror switch and ground.
