  • broken power mirrors?

    Power mirrors not working right? Its probably just the switch on door panel. New switch costs about $16 at powerstrokeshop.com and takes about 30 seconds to swap out. Many people assume the motors are bad or something...

    Cheers!

      Yep. Since then I have 'fixed' several more for people who also thought something more expensive was wrong. They must fail pretty often...

        Every time I crack the window a bit, if it's precipitating, it drops right on that dang switch along with the window switches! Vent shades maybe?

            Not to hijack but does that have anything to do with the turn signal in the mirror not working as well?

              hehehe, not to ignore your question (I just didn't see it!!)....

              I doubt it, this lil switch just controls the mirror adjustment. None of my junk is fancy enough to have lites on the mirrors - lol, so I can't help much!

              Thats a GREAT question for the PSD gurus at www.ford-trucks.com - just scroll down to the appropriate section (7.3 or 6.0 or Excursion, Van, etc). There are 10's of 1000's of members there - its almost a sure bet one of them knows whats wrong!!

                  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. May have to pick up some vent shades as well.
