Ohhhkay. More troubleshooting...

I've fooled around with DC motors a lot, ever since my days of slot racing back in the 60's and 70's. I know how brushes & commutators work, and I know sometimes...

PFB, they don't move up or down at all, neither manually nor from memory. I took a chance on a used mirror ecm, but that isn't it. I found a thread on another forum started by someone with the same...

05 ES330 mirror ecm

I usually head for the SC forum when I sign on to CL (99 SC400 owner) but now I have a question on my wife's 05 ES330. The mirrors no longer move up or down. They move in and out OK. The problem...

Exactly. Note my sig below. :cool:

Is that true - only 905 '99 SC4's were built?

Bumping this thread to bring y'all up to date on the '93 sc3 manual. A friend and I took a ride down I-5 to have a look at it.

OK. We got a bunch of opinions.

But nobody stated the obvious.

"A two-car garage? Dude, get a bigger house! And, yeah, buy the SC manual!"

Hey, I'm at least gonna drive the thing. Unless...

Beautiful low-milers, you guys!

There's no output fuse for the sub that I know of. The sub is probably just dead.

The speakers in these cars, even with the optional Nak system, are pretty low quality. The subs and rear corner...
