Right mirror memory screwy

Recommended Posts

My right mirror has started to adjust itself to the full, pointing up, position when opening locks with keyless entry.  Memory feature has always worked fine until just recently.  Power mirror still functions normally from the switch, but overtime I have to adjust it back to a normal position after unlocking.  Any suggestions where to look for the issue here?

Try resetting the memory for seat/mirrors.  With key in ignition and switched on (both doors closed), set the desired positions for seat and mirrors. Keep memory button M depressed and press either 1, 2, or 3.  Turn ignition off and remove key.  Then try it while locking/unlocking car.  I know on some modern cars the seat/mirrors positions are saved along with the key fob, but I'm not sure that is the case with our 996's, at least not my 99 key fob.


The manual also states that when pushing the memory button, the lumbar support and mirrors positions will be completed even if the memory button is not kept depressed.  I have heard that sometimes the electrical contacts in the memory button panel get gummed up, and removal, cleaning the contacts and testing clears things up.
