Hi All,

I attempted the mirror mod, which due to my technical ineptitude has not gone to plan.

I wired it up & it didn't work, so I simply reconnected all the wires.

I hadn't noticed I had cut an additional wire, when I tried to unfold the mirrors and raise the drivers window they were totally unresponsive.

I've checked and rechecked the connections and everything is connected back fine (twisted together and held by a chocolate box connector)

I've unplugged the battery (-ve) and left it for 15 mins

Any ideas?

Is there a 'module' which thinks the window is up or something daft? (On my volvo even the window switches were coded to the car!)

I'm tempted to splash out the £100 for a new door harness and just take it to the dealer (Its under warranty... eeep)

I found the window one yes and that is intact, all the other windows work also.

Any idea which is the mirrors one ? (Although that is the one which concerns me least night now!)

Thank you for the link, the folding mirror one is covered too! thank you!

Its probably just blown all sorts!

Next dumbass question, sorry I am in work so not near the car / manual but want to make sure its clear in my head when I get home:

I assume from looking at the fuses last night that they're mini *Edit* Sorry MICRO Blade */edit* blade (Hoping I can buy from halfords on my way home) Or is it still only possible to buy from the dealer ??

I know we are going to talk later, but something similar happened when I did mine and cant exactly remember what I did to resolve it. I'm sure it's not a fuse, but more to do with the fact the car does not know it's un-locked. Did you try locking it with the key itself?

Yes, on the fuses, Halfords do sell them... well my local one does.

Hi Pete,

Thanks, I just want to make sure I've got everything for when I call, spare fuses can never hurt!

I have tried locking / unlocking it all with the ignition on and off, with it in position I and II etc :-D

*Edit* Although the non working aircon worries me now, that isn't vital!

??? That's strange... then it does sound like fuses. Is it just the fan that does not work?

I was randomly punching all the buttons on the left side of the dash and they're all unresponsive! (don't light up or anything)
The radio / screens etc all still work fine!

So it's not just the AC not working but the whole climate control system?

Could be a fault with the climate control unit or the MICU then?

It appears to be the whole lot yes :(

I'll check the fuse when I get in tonight as I am not sure how anything I've done could have effected the climate control?

Just had a thought while reading Bog's post about the car being confused.
Might be worth disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes or so the car resets itself.

It's a long shot but it might work lol.

No idea why fiddling with wires in the door would effect the climate control either. Don't even know where the control unit is located.

Maybe you shorted a wire or a ground's come loose somewhere? Just grasping at straws TBH mate :(

Yeah I left the battery unplugged last night for about 20-25 mins (Although only the -ve if that makes any difference?? )

No I can't think of any logical reason at all! Unless the fuse has been tripped by another one going or something!

Don't know how this has affected your CC and A/C. Are all the wires definitely connected properly. Because I've done stuff like this and I've been certain everything is connected I check it 100 times and then on the 101st time I realised I've missed something.

Sorted!

Issue with the door mirrors was a wiring one, when I was re-hanging the door card, it was pulling one of the connectors :)

Issue with the window, dickhead here didn't check fuse 1!!

Issue with the air con... weird one this.... while under the dash I checked every plug was still tight and they were, but after replacing fuse one it worked... not sure if maybe a plug was just a tiny bit loose or what!!
