I agree - pull the dash face off and disconnect the plug to the cig lighter, replace fuse, see what happens.

Re: acc fuse keeps blowing ???

Yeah, that's the usual culprit. Also, make sure if you leave the socket unplugged rather than replace it keep the plug off the back of it insulated or no where near any metal or other wiring. The orange wire going to it is hot at all times

Re: acc fuse keeps blowing ???

I had the same problem with my GTA a few years ago, checked all the wires only to trace it back to the cig lighter. Unplugged it and everything was fine after replacing the fusse. Didnt realize this was that common of a problem on these cars.

Re: acc fuse keeps blowing ???

If you can't find a mirror switch, I've got a good spare with all tabs intact I can let you have for reasonable, complete with bezel in white print, or yellow if you want that
