Remove this fuse, are the connections to it burnt or discolored and is is a 5 amp fuse?
Thanks, ***** ***** left dash fuse box do the same check at the LT DRS fuse 30 amp and in the right dash fuse box same inspections on RT DR WINDOW MTR 30amp fuse. So far its all pointing to a failed circuit board inside the fuse box.
That would be correct, a new fuse box, and that is just to resolve the odor. Though that repair will not address the faulty mirrors, the fuse for them is is good. The power mirror switch needs power on the red/violet and ground on the black. Are you SURE the smoke came from the fuse box? I find it odd for all the fuses effecting the 2 issues you have to not have any damage and are powered.
Can you jump over to check the power and ground to the mirror switch, since that caused this, the fuse is powered, and its still not working. Wiring i nthe door jam or near the fuse box is what I am leaning most towards.
Do you have a volt meter or test light?
Unplug the mirror switch, clamp to chassis ground, and probe the wire color pin I mentioned that is power. Clamp to something powered, and probe the ground wire I mentioned to see if the switch is getting ground.
That is correct, its the wiring since you confirmed the MIR WINDOW MDL 5 amp fuse is good and powered. Can you trace this wire red/violet through the door jam to the fuse box to look for a break or burn.
Best of luck at the shop. Glad I could help up to where your skill level was reached.
I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.
