Default 2005 Accord lx auto dimming mirror issue

Hello everyone,

My auto dimming mirror does not work. There is no power feed (12V) at the connector of the mirror. I checked all the fuses in the under dash fuse box. According to wiring diagram, another inline fuse exist. I couldn't locate it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What are you using as your ground when you are testing the blk/yel wire to the mirror?

I can't find a wiring diagram in the shop manual. Looks like the auto-dimming mirror was an accessory. Does your mirror also have a compass?

I found the installation instructions on the handa accessories (spelling is correct) website. The 4-cylinder and 6 cylinder accords had different installation instructions. Is your accord a V6 or 4-cylinder?

My mirror has a compass. I have a 2.4l 4-cylinder engine.

Finally, I found the fuse holder. The fuse was missing. Now my problem is having power all the time at the mirror connector. I realized that inline fuse is connected between black/yellow and black/yellow wires. Can I solve this problem by switching between black/yellow and yellow/green wires? Does it make sense to you?
