Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Do the mirrors or windows make any noise at all when trying to operate them?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
O.k.,I will take a look for some bulletins and electrical info on this system here.I will post back here shortly.
O.k.,the mirrors and windows are controlled by the General control module.This is a very common component that fails out of the blue like this here.It is so common there are companies that will actually rebuild yours instead of having it replaced.They will usually also walk you through removal and installation for it.Below is a link to one of these facilities that can repair your general control module.If this occurred out of the blue and nothing was used when it occurred and with the very common fault of this module this isnt a fuse or relay fault.The general control module has built in relays for these functions here to control the windows and various other electronics.Some of these electronics are listed in the website info below.I have had to either have this repaired to correct this issue or removed and replaced to correct this fault here in the past before several times.

You would need to purchase it new from a dealer or in some cases you can purchase it rebuilt from the company I listed above in the link I provided.But it is a "general control module".

That is the module.You will need to have it programmed/coded by a dealer or authorized repair center after install.
