Default Passenger side power mirror doesn't work

I had some work done on my 01 EX Coupe (Automatic). I had the passenger side door replaced and now my passenger side power mirror doesn't work. The driver side power mirror works perfectly fine. The passenger side power mirror worked great before I had the work done. The mechanic said he used my old mirror from my old door.

The mechanic tried telling me it was a fuse, but I checked my Civic Owner's Manual and it says that there's only one fuse which controls both power mirrors.

I'm thinking it's either a pinched wire, or a dead motor. When I try to adjust the window via the window controls (next to steering wheel), I don't even hear the motor making any type of sound.

Any ideas/input/advice would be appreciated.

Pull the cover off and make sure the mirror is actually plugged in.

Where the wiring harness (2 bundles of wires with clips) connects under the glovebox, the two wires for the mirror were ripped out of the connector. Did some soldering. Works like a charm.

Now to swap this window with my tinted one. (Retard mechanic used an untinted piece of glass, instead of my tinted piece.)

They got anxious and yanked the door too quickly. If it were a fuse, why didn't they just replace it?! Very professional.


At least it was an easy fix. (and cheap)
