It's the same fuse as the cigarette lighter..15A
Bottom left second one from left
It will be in the fuse box located on the kickpanel inside
your vehicle.

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.

Where's the fuse box for sides mirror, or electric diagram for it

USA car? (this is USA forum so USA wiring it is)
electric side mirrors 95 kick
i can tell you right now, its not called MIRROR.
as the fuse cover clearly is missing that word, so, only a real FSM has that, I have just that .

the 1996 its the radio fuse. marked radio.f15 white-black power feed
95, ? i think or USA car did not have this in 1995
its missing in my 95 FSM.

tell me all wires colors to the mirror switch
and i can tell you what fuse. sure.
The colors are different in other countries. lots are.
so.... be the first to post country.
my guess is USA or Canada, for Sidekick name and not Vitara
but in canada they have different wring , DRL and some have
unique colored wires, but id bet not this wire. (no laws regulating mirrors yet, is my reasoning)
what is your VIN number. (put x's on last 3 digits)

i see one post with radio dead and mirror for 1995
so, radio fuse. blown
i have a russian fsm that shows, same color. 1995 as above
radio fuse

"from Russia , with love?" google is my friend.

W/B wire it shows, and is RADIO. BINGO

Where do I find the number for the side mirror fuse of a Peugeot 407 ST Saloon. The hand book does not list the number?

Not an expert on Peugeot but the fuses should be labelled on the inside of the fuse box cover. Failing that just remove each fuse one by one to see which is blown.

Mirrors do not operate electric

Assuming your car actually has power mirrors. If its just one mirror, if could be the control pad is worn out or, the motor in that particular mirror has worn out, and will need to be replaced. If it is both mirrors though, it could possibly just be a shorted fuse. The fuse for the mirrors should be located on the interior fuse box, and will be labeled on the back of the fuse box cover which fuse needs to be replaced.

The electric door and miirors are not working

Normally the owners manual will have a diagram of the fuse panel and what fuses are where. It may be by number with a table that has the names. Then you'll have to take the manual to the fuse panel so you can tell which is the top and bottom.

You could also just take fuses out one by one and look through the side to see if they are blown. A good fuse will have no breaks or burnt spots in it. A blown fuse will have a gap somewhere. If there's a doubt, get an ohmmeter and test it. It should be less than a half ohm, but a blown fuse will be open.

The fuse box panel is located to the left of steering wheel, remove the panel and use the cover diagram on the inside of the panel to ID the correct fuse. This fuse may be part of another system so if you don't see a fuse marked Mirrors get a cheap test light from Kragen or a store like it and test the fuses with the key on check both sides of the fuse, both sides will light if the fuse is good, one note make sure the clip lead end of the electrical test light is hooked top a good ground.

Electrical Problem

I would operate one by one mirrors left-right,radio, electric locks.
I would first dont operate side mirrors and observe if fuse remain then leave radio disconected (dont power on or remove its wire harness). If with radio disconnected fuse is not blown, i would use electrical locking and test again.
Good Luck
