Power mirror system

For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to 8W-62 - Power Mirrors in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

(1) Check the fuses in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the junction block. If OK, go to Step 2.

If not OK, repair the shorted circuit or component as required and replace the faulty fuse(s).

(2) Check for battery voltage at the fuse in the junction block. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the PDC as required.

(3) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Remove the driver side door trim panel and unplug the wire harness connector from the power mirror switch. Connect the battery negative cable.

Check for battery voltage at the fused B(+) circuit cavity in the door wire harness half of the power mirror switch wire harness connector. If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the junction block as required.

(4) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Check for continuity between the ground circuit cavity in the door wire harness half of the power mirror switch wire harness connector and a good ground. There should be continuity. If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, repair the circuit to ground as required.

(5) If the problem being diagnosed is an inoperative power mirror electric heating grid, proceed as follows. If not, go to Step 8. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Remove the front door trim panel on the side of the vehicle with the inoperative mirror heating grid. Unplug the wire harness connector at the mirror. Check for continuity between the ground circuit cavity in the body half of the power mirror wire harness connector and a good ground. If OK, go to Step 6. If not OK, repair the open circuit to ground as required.

(6) Connect the battery negative cable. Turn the ignition switch to the On position. Turn on the rear window defogger system. Check for battery voltage at the rear window defogger relay output circuit cavity in the body half of the power mirror wire harness connector. If OK, go to Step 7. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the rear window defogger relay as required.

(7) Check for continuity between the ground circuit and the rear window defogger relay output circuit cavities in the mirror half of the power mirror wire harness connector. There should be continuity. If not OK, replace the faulty power mirror. If OK, check the resistance through the electric heating grid circuit (Fig. 1). Correct resistance through the electric heating grid should be from 6 to 8.2 ohms when measured at an ambient temperature of 21 C (70 F). If not OK, replace the faulty power mirror.

(8) Check the power mirror switch continuity as shown in (Fig. 2). If OK, go to Step 9. If not OK, replace the faulty switch.

(9) Unplug the wire harness connector at the inoperative power mirror. Use two jumper wires, one connected to a 12-volt battery feed, and the other connected to a good body ground. See the Power Mirror Test chart for the correct jumper wire connections to the power mirror half of the power mirror wire harness connector (Fig. 3). If the power mirror(s) do not respond as indicated in the chart, replace the faulty power mirror assembly. If the power mirror(s) do respond as indicated in the chart, repair the cir- cuits between the power mirror and the power mirror switch for a short or open as required.
