ELECTRIC ADJUSTING SIDEVIEW MIRRORS DO NOT MOVE AT ALL (FLORIDA VEHICLE...SO, ITS NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO INSANE COLD)

2000 Oldsmobile Bravada • 165,000 miles

Hello. The electric sideview mirrors on my 2000 oldsmobile bravada have no movement with adju switch. Its not the fuse as the locks works and they both seem to be on the same fuse.I am good with tools and a meter be it a multimeter or 12volt auto tester. Just need help on where to look. I just got this vehicle and it is in otherwise EXCELLENT condition in and out. Its fantastic inside and out and has all the conveniences of a luxury car. Which I love. Thanks for the help

If its not the fuse and power is going thru it-check the mirror motor

Are both side or only one side that is not working?
Have you checked the switch connections and power supply to it?

ok. First, its BOTH mirrors (didnt I say that? Lol). Secondly, I would check power/voltage, it if I knew which wires pair to check. I could easily take of the driver side door panel and get to the harness. Keep it coming guys! I know I can lick it!
(then after this, I have a door hinge pin issue. Just need to replace ONE, the lower driver side pin. Actually the bushing it seems. But dont understand the 'odd' shape of replacement bushing. One thing at a time.)

Thanks for the help thus far guys. I have the panel off and access is easy now. If someone can tell me which wires I should measure for voltage? Sorry for sounding sarcastic or ungrateful. I was only being jovial. I really do appreciate any and all help. This site is a fantastic wealth of info!

Sorry for the delay in replying. Was feeling under the weather yesterday.

I have the schematics here and since both sides are not working, I would suggest starting with the power supply. The Orange wire from the fuse.
