What is a power mirror is not working inspection?

A mechanic will thoroughly inspect your mirrors and the adjacent system, then provide a full report and estimate for repairs.
While improper functioning could be due to corroded electronics, the following are common causes for a power mirror that won’t work:
  • Internal mechanisms are bad (pins, plastic holders, motors)
  • Blown fuse
  • Ice in the mirror
  • Mirror switch needs replacement
Depending on the model of your vehicle, you may need to wait for replacement parts to be ordered.

How to inspect a power mirror that is not working

During this inspection, a mechanic will likely take apart components of your power mirror, such as the panel, switches, and mirror itself. They will also test this system using the interior control panel.
Once the cause is identified, you’ll be given a full report and estimate on the repairs. If you don’t get the repairs done immediately—or have to wait on additional parts—the mechanic will put the mirror back together and realign it as best they can.

When do I need to inspect a power mirror that isn’t working

When you choose to have your mirror inspected is ultimately up to the driver. But it’s critical that drivers can use their mirrors when on the road. This problem can become especially dangerous if the mirror moves without driver input.
