Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Side view mirror

The drivers side view mirror has lost its "breakaway" function?
I took off the inspection panel on the bottom of the mirror and can't
seem to decipher the problem? No spring or retention mechanism
that I can see? Any ideas? Is the mirror repairable?

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

The driver's side control panel won't work. i.e;


There's a 50 amp fuse in box under hood. Could be the problem as far as I can tell there are no fuses in car. Check all connections. This just happened to my car. I tried using my passenger side panel an drivers side and drivers side window starting working. I put the drivers side panel on the passenger side and all other functions worked except my initial problem. I found my main auto switch on drivers side panel was bad which was causing all other functions not to work.

Putting new mirror on passenger side door?


Behind the passenger-side front-door at the bottom of the window
you will find a molded triangular panel with a tweeter [audio speaker].
To access the nuts that affix the side-view mirror to the door you will
remove the panel. Gently pry on the top of the panel to remove it but be careful as speaker wires will be attached. Quick way to replace the mirror assembly is to support the panel and don't put stress on the wires. Open the door and find the nuts that hold the mirror onto the door. If you have electric powered mirrors you will need to separate the connector that sends current to the mirror for the remote function. Remove the nuts and be very careful not to drop the nuts into the door cavity. Good luck!
