    Best to scan the electrical system computers with a factory level scanner, not a parts store scanner, and see what is out of sync. These cars are complex and each system has its own little computer, i.e. every door has a separate computer etc.

    We would start out by checking the fuses. You may have a blown fuse to the power mirror circuit. I believe the fuse box is located in glove box, but you can double check with your owner's manual. If you'd like to stop by, we'll check fuses at no charge.
