'01 tow mirrors blowing fuse
I just purchased a pair of tow mirrors and installed them this evening. Went to adjust the DRIVER mirror and blew the 10 amp fuse that controls mirrors, dome light, and radio. Thought it was a fluke and replaced it and same thing happened. So I threw a 20 amp in there and it didn't blow. Switched to the PASSENGER and the mirror will only adjust three directions, just not upwards. At the same time I'm adjusting passenger mirror, the overhead lamp dimly lights up!
I'm horrible with electrical gremlins like this.
It seems like an issue with the passenger mirror but the fuse was blowing when adjusting driver. I'm not sure if I should just try to return the passenger side and see what happens.
I've only had the truck for two months and I never noticed any mirror issues before but I'm not sure how much I had to adjust them for me compared to the previous owner.
