Default Not sure what I did wrong...

Just replaced the electric mirror on the passenger side. When I plugged it in, neither mirror worked and the door locks won't stay 'down' when I use the button. Unplugged the new mirror but no change. Checked the fuses with no luck. Am I missing something obvious here? The replacement mirror is a direct replacement from LMC Truck.

Did you happen to notice the color of the plug on the new mirror? Was it the same color as the plug from the old one?

I did. Both light gray. Three flay male pins and three flat female slots. I'm stumped.

The reason I asked was because sometimes the plugs are the same only grey, blue, or red. Red being heated mirrors.

I must have created a short somehow. Just can't figure out how plugging it in did it and why it's affecting the door locks.

It may have somehow damaged the FCM as it controls the electronics.
