Hey guys,

I fairly regularly adjust my mirrors. The other day I tried to adjust the mirrors, and they didn't work. Any advice on where to start looking? Do the switches tend to break? Is it more likely just a loose/stripped/cut wire in the door or something? Thanks in advance for the help!

Did you bother to check the fuse prior to posting this thread?

Bimmerman. First thing you need to check after the obvious is(ie fuse) look at your connector plug on the drivers side door. Look up on the net to which pin is for power mirror. I had and still have a similar problem since the door plug is corroded and I either need to replace the plug(not easy to find) or re-solder those pins.

Also it might be a good idea to check the on drivers side door switch cable.

Please update us on your progress since I fixed the door plug one on driver side but the passenger side seems to be acting up after a couple week of use.
