St185 power mirror switch replacement?

Hey guys,
I work nights and having a small car sucks because of every other car's headlights. I can't adjust my side mirrors because my switch isn't working good and I really hate moving the mirrors with my hands because I don't want to damage them.
Does anyone know of a newer replacement switch that connects to the plug on our power mirror switch?
Finding a used replacement switch isn't easy to find for my st185

The switch should be the same for all 5th gen/xT18x Celicas, I don't think any of them had manual mirrors.

Well, I was hoping I could use the switch from a newer toyota car and if anyone knew of another toyota that has a switch that would work. That's what I ment to ask

I don't think I could have gotten a better reply! Well, unless it said you'll send me one as a gift :rofl:

Could you give me that part number please?

Replaced with a used one from eBay. My passenger mirror works fine but the driver side is unresponsive :shoots:
Even with the old switch it wouldn't move.
It's either dead or unplugged. I'll investigate since I have the door panel off atm.
The list of little issues is finishing up....


update: I just got home and wanted to give it a quick exam. It was just unplugged and it works perfectly fine :)
Man, I love these easy fixes
