Hi, the picture below may not be exact for your model, but designs are similar. There will be several bolts or screws, especially around the handle used to pull the door shut. These may be hidden by small plastic covers that you can pry out with a small screwdriver. If there are hidden or visible screws in the door latch recess, remove those also and the recess trim, if it comes out. Once all screws are out the remaining fasteners are either push-in types like the #3 in the pic (pull straight out to dislodge these--reach under the panel to pull closer to the fastener, if possible), or they may be hooks (along the bottom?) that you have to pull up on the panel to release. Once all fasteners are free, swing the panel out and up to get it off the window ledge. Disconnect all connectors by releasing the locking tabs and pulling off. The panel should now be free. There may be a vapor barrier on the door. Remove this carefully as needed to access the wiring. The tar will stick to anything, so be careful not you get it on good clothes. Also, the sheet metal of the door will scratch/cut your arms, so take care working inside the door. To replace the panel, always start by setting it on the window ledge and then swing down. If there are hook at the bottom, lift up slightly to engage and then let down again without letting the top of the panel slip off the window ledge. If you get stuck, please let me know. I can also help troubleshoot the circuits, if needed.

    By the way, you can often test the switches without taking the door panel off. Check to see if the control panel has screws--if none, it may just pull up. Try using a putty knife to pry it up around the edges.

Side view mirror light on 2003 GMC Yukon not working

GM calls these the exterior illumination lamps. They receive power from the driver and passenger door modules. The lamps could be bad or something is preventing power from getting from the door modules to the lamps. The "repeater" turn indicators in the mirrors are powered separately so they could be OK while the illumination lamps are not
