TESTING

Mirror Motors & Switches

  1. Ensure fuse is okay by operating interior lights. If
    neither mirror operates, check for battery voltage at power mirror
    switch assembly. Connect a voltmeter between terminal "G" (Red with
    White stripe) and ground. If battery voltage is present, connect
    voltmeter between terminals "G" and "F" (Black). If battery voltage is
    not present, check circuit at Red with White stripe wire and Black
    wire.

  2. If one mirror does not operate, connect a voltmeter across
    power mirror switch assembly terminals. See Fig. 1. Voltage will be
    present when control switch and mirror select switch are operated for
    that motor.
