    Same problem. Never coded my key fob to fold in my mirrors, but about a week ago it started folding the mirror out when I hit the unlock on key fob. Since mirror was never folded in, it rotated past the home position. Now every time I unlock the doors, the problem occurs. Spontaneously folds outward while driving as well. Eventually just took the fuse out so the folding motor doesn't work and set the mirror in place manually.

    I have the same problem, but they will not re-program the mirror; they want me to buy a new $500 servo.

    Driver side mirror unfolds all the way pass normal position on its own. Obviously poor quality materials and engineering.
