Passenger mirror acts weird (2001 300m)
I recently acquired a 2001 300m that was exactly what I wanted. All the toys minus the extra rare chrome interior parts and obviously no Special parts. Has heated seats, memory, etc.
Anyway, I love the mirror tilt down feature and the key fobs which are programmed to the mirrors however the passenger mirror sensor isn't working.
What happens is that when I hit a keyfob, the mirror then starts to change to the memory position however the mirror keeps going down down down until it finally shuts off. The mirror never returns to the normal upper position on its own.
Same thing happens when I put the car in reverse, the pass mirror tilts down and keeps tilting down until it finally stops. Same thing, the mirror never returns to the normal upper position on its own.
Its acting like the sensor that tells the mirror what position it is in for the down isn't working and the mirror always thinks its still up and not moving down hence forcing the motor to keep trying to tilt it down.
Is this repairable or do I need a new mirror?
