    The passanger side mirror is continuously running all of the sudden. I have replaced the switch and the same issue pops up. It only stops when I pull the switch from its connection. Is this a something people have run into? Thanks.

    Sounds like a short to ground in the harness somewhere. I would check the hinge area of the door.

    Booo goes the mirror...

    Thank you Paul. I thought I had a visual on the worn wire, taped it up, and found that it still wanders around without guidance. I will keep looking - I picked up this car to play around with it and learn how to work on them, and I truly appreciate the guidance you provide everyone.

    I'll see if I can find any sort of wiring diagram. I am happy to help. I only ask one thing:

    Remember, it is "all of a sudden" not "all of the sudden"
