Don't change fuses unless blown. Usually, in the G8, the aux power F14 20 amp fuse blows before either the F22 or the F13. I bet that's what is blown in yours--it's usually what blows in mine.

Without having the vehicle an doing some testing we'd only be guessing . Your best bet would be have a qualified repair shop look at it . You replaced the starter but the battery light stays on ? That's because the starter has nothing to do with the charging system . The battery light is an indication the charging system has a problem . The charging system on your vehicle is controlled by the PCM - engine computer . The first thing to do would have been to hook up a scan tool an check for codes in the PCM & BCM .

Electric in tank fuel pump is defective or the relay or wiring for the pump is faulty.

Generally weird stuff like this is caused by the gears in the headlights being stripped. You can search for tutorials on opening the motors and flipping the gear. It only uses half the gear so if it's flipped you use the other side.

Since you know you reversed the wires, I'd look into the headlight control module. Probably zapped it.

If you are replacing the entire mirror assembly you have to remove the door panel.

First remove the switch plate by prying upward at the rear of the switch plate and unhook the connectors. Then remove the two armrest screws. The door panel then has to be pryed away from the door to release the clips. They don't give up easily so yo may have to force it a bit. Once the clips are loose pull up on the panel to remove it from the window reveal molding. The mirror is held on with three 10mm nuts. remove those and unhook the wiring from in the door. Install is reverse of removal.

Good Luck

a problem axle will vibrate worse the faster you go but the vibration will be there up or down so for the moment I will set that aside.
if it is vibrating during acceleration but stops when the accelerator is released, it indicates and engine /transmission management problem
first I would run the fault codes as the problem could be from a faulty cam position sensor
servo/solenoid that has the cam too far advanced for the engine rpms and power setting
next it could be a problem with injector control or fuel flow/ pressure
have the fuel pressure tested at rpms to ensure that the pressure regulator is operational
what you describe occurs from misfiring or the like so go to an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote
back to the axle --it could be a problem wheel bearing failing or needing adjustment so keep that in the back of your mind if nothing shows up in the fault codes or diagnosis from a shop with experience
