Does anyone know which fuse controls the electric side view mirrors?

It's not listed on the fuse panel, nor in the Haynes.

I noticed today they don't want to work... A fuse would be convenient, rather than a bad switch.

If the switch has not been used in a while, the contacts become tarnished, and it can seem like it does not work. For a while, mine worked up and down, but not side to side. I figured out that was because I was using up and down more... :roll:

I don't know which fuse, not without pulling it.

If you have a bit of time, just push the switch firmly a couple dozen times, if it is tarnished inside, that will wipe the oxidation off.

Haynes 12-24
Power mirrors..
Fuse 3 and 4; then fuse 7.
Ignition switch relay and the heated rear window relay
Not a simple circuit at all.
I hate to think how many good switches end up in landfills due to a lack of easy maintenance.

You are a wise man. It has now come back to life, albeit begrudgingly.

Up and down, first, and later this AM side to side.

Simply pushing on the switch, as you suggested, did the job.
