Help with Electrics pweeese

Hi silly one this but wondering if anyone can help. I have purchased some carbon fibre mirrors, going for a complete front end before long. However when removing the original electric mirrors and unplugging them, having fitted the carbon ones and put the door card back in, the only window that now works is the drivers one???? Any ideas what might of happened here? Are the electric windows fused on the electric mirrors or something? Anyone know. If you can help i would really appreciate it. Kind Regards Gareth

Make sure the connector block is pushed all the way in and check it again

just a quick thought while you are looking at that connectors try spraying some elecktrical contact cleaner in the contacts and working them in and out a few times, will help make a better contact hope it helps.

Thankyou the pilot. Ive never used that switch, thought it was a central locking switch and low and behold switched it and all the windows work. Thanks again
