Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

I also show fuse 17 in my factory diagrams. If there is power on both sides of that fuse then the next step is to pop out the mirror switch and check for power on the orange/light green wire. You can also hold the mirror switch in one of the positions and with the drivers door open move around the wiring convolute that runs between the body and the door and see if the mirror moves. I often see wires break in that area from flexing.
