    Hi all,
    I bought an 03 Tacoma a few weeks back with chrome (ewww) power mirrors, so I purchased new black ones off ebay. After replacing them, I checked to make sure they worked, which they did. The next day both mirrors would only go up and left. I took off the driver side mirror and saw that I pinched a wire between the mirror and the metal when bolting it down, so the next day I spliced a piece of wire to replace the damaged section. Now they dont work at all, even after plugging in my old chrome mirrors (which were working before). Is it possible that the mirror switch has gone bad? Please help.

    Did you check the fuse? A grounded/pinched wire could pop a fuse.

    the fuse for the side mirrors is the "acc" fuse, which is not blown. so unless there is a fuse somewhere in between the switch and the mirrors i have no idea.
