Hey so I just...

Hey so I just got new power mirrors but they still don't work they didn't work on my other mirrors either I have power going to the switch and power to my left mirror but no power going to my right mirror I checked the fuse and it's good I have no idea could it a wiring issue somewhere in the door?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It's consistent

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2000 f150 lariat

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am well I haven't gotten a new switch yet cuz I don't know where if the switch or the wires going to the switch I looked at the fuse and the connector to the switch and the connector has power and so does my left mirror

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it thank you!!

Hi My name is Jay

When you flip the switch to right mirror and move the switch do you get any movement of right mirror in any direction? When on drivers mirror does it work in all directions?

No nothing works at all even when I use the switch

Do you have mirror switch wiring exposed and have a test light or volt meter to do a couple checks?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I do now

Check to see if voltage is coming into switch on orange wire?

Showing 12.3

Flip switch to right mirror and check purple wire and move switch in all different directions to see if any power goes to purple wire?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
It's only showing 1 should I be on ohms or dcv
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Because I was on ohms when it was showing 1

Should be testing voltage.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Okay I tried it on voltage and it showing nothing reading

Then the switch is not sending power to mirrors and should be sending power from orange wire to move mirrors. Replace mirror switch and retest system for proper operation.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
