I just installed new side mirrors on both doors. Now my windows will not operate. I was very careful with the wiring, nothing came loose. I am thinking it's the relay under the instrument cluster, but i am not sure. any suggestions?

Your new mirror is possessed park by a church for five minutes. If its a fuse problem, it is the window fuse. Otherwise you probably loosened up the contacts for the door panel controller or did not plug something back up when you installed the possessed mirror. You didnt say if the windows were working before or not
If its a power mirror there is more thing you will have to remove to get to the wires but if not there is a screw on the corner piece on the inside of the door. just pull the screw out and the bolts (3) that hold the mirror on are behind it. If it power then you will have to remove the door panel to access the wiring to disconnect it
