Hi all,
A few days I got in my car and I saw that the external thermometer did not work.
A couple of days later I needed the heating but it was completely ded.
With it, the mirrors do not operate and so does the rear defroster.
I thought that it might be a fuse but I can not find a thing about it.
Can anybody help?

So... what I did was to check all the cars fuses one by one.
I found the one responsible for the problem but I also triggered a new problem.
It was the last one that I tried.
No. 36 described as "IG2 HAC" in the manual.
After 4 hours and 4 burned fuses the problem is narrowed to the left door's mirror or temperature switch.
Tomorrow i am going to update about that.
The new problem is the alarm.
By checking all the fuses, I removed the alarm's fuse as well...
Now it sounds all the time!
I think is time for me to change car.

No need to take the fuses out in most cases. Check the fuses in the fuse-box with a voltmeter or test lamp.
The 'feed side will be at 12V (depending whether it's a permanent feed or ignition switched) and so should the other side if the fuse has not blown.

i.e. If one side is at 12V and the other side isn't, then it's blown.

This is true but when you do not have the tools you need to be inventive.
What, like pulling a fuse and having the alarm go off all the time?:frown2:
It's virtually impossible to trace faults on electrics without a meter of some sort.
Buy an el cheapo digital voltmeter. £8 Halfords, a couple of quid less on ebay.
