Hello, did a search couldn't pull nothing up so i've desided to post...

My power mirrors dont seem to work at all and i dunno why. the switch gets power yet it still doesn't work. I've tryed loopin the wires to check if the switch doesn't work but power doesn't go upto the wires in the power mirror...

Only prob is tracin the wire they are hiddin rather well behide this big black peice of fome which i know is gonna be a killa to get off. So before i take heaps of stuff off does any one know how to fault find it?

I dunno if there is a fuse or not, or what would go first. All i know is that my mirrors move when i put 12v's to them, and there is power on the switch lead and i can't loop power to the window so yes... any help would be nice...

Maybe an earth problem ? but i dunno where that place would be and like i said i'd rather not dive into takin half the underpart of the dash to not find it... thanks :P

----edit----
it's for a ford EL
