sunroof, misc. (RE)

Post by Mstrshkbrnnn » Wed Oct 23, 2019 1:11 pm

I recently uploaded a question, because my sunroof stopped working. It turns out it was my dash light dimmer that was fried, and when i replaced it, the sunroof started working again, but i still have no dash lights. Any idea why? Also, my heated mirrors switch works, and when i engage it the rear defroster turns on, and the passenger side mirror heats up, but my driver side one doesn't. looking for some feedback as to why. Also, i cannot adjust either mirror with the power switch located above the window switches.

These questions are regarding a 96 850r if that matters.

These mirror joysticks tend to get dirty underneath. Try wiggling them back and forth for a while. This should free them up.
You might wanna try spraying WD40 in there as well.
