power side mirrors not working need help

I have a 2001 GMC and the power mirrors are not working on either side. I can understand one going bad, but neither morror will move in any direction. I have tried to find the fuse but neither box has this labeled. (don't have a manual) I'm going to assume that the switch is bad or it's not getting electricity. I don't know if there is a relay though, so if anyone has any experience please let me know.

Re: power side mirrors not working need help

it could be the fuse, but more likely the switch, all I can say about the fuse is check all of them, or post back with what kind of truck it is and I can tell you which fuse it is.

Re: power side mirrors not working need help

It's a 2001 GMC Jimmy 4x4. It's not the Envoy but does have the power drivers seat (no leather though) As far as I know the only other thing it doesn't have is the heated seats. The mirrors supposedly are heated as well but I am just getting the vehicle and it hasn't been snowing around here in a month. We pulled quite a few fuses and didn't find anything burnt, so I'm willing to bet that the switch went as well. Will try to find power though before I pull the door panel off and disassemble everything.

Thanks. I remember seeing the door lock label on the fuses, but it said nothing about mirrors. That explains it and will check. Thanks.

Re: power side mirrors not working need help

my 98 blazer had the same issue...turned out to be the switch in the door...best way to check is to find someone with the same truck 98+ and will work

and swap the switch...it will take you 5 mins
