Door Mirror

Good Morning
My 1997 Turbo R has a near side door mirror that decides it wants to go in to looking at the floor all by its self !!!
i have tried resetting the Memory and it works for a bit and then just decides to move on its own
any body else had this ?

Hi Michael
I've seen cars do this when put into reverse.
Mine has never done this though.

It might be the driver ECU seat, under the seat.
Have you replaced the battery inside ?
They leak after 10 years or les and destro the ECU tracks...

Does sound like a possible seat ECU fault ( but Im very much a new kid on the block ).. are the 2 interchangeable on this model? Might be worth swapping them over if possible and see if the fault swaps to the off-side..

Hi All
Yes you can swap them over , but take the lid off anyway to check the battery condition.
If leaky cut them out and throw them

Michael, almost definitely the seat ecu.

Do take them both out and check the batteries as Jean suggests. THIS INCLUDES EVERY OWNER WHO HAS MEMORY SEATS. If you don't know if your battery has been changed in the past ten years then do it now. Before the damage is done. It's cheap and easy to replace or even remove the battery on a working unit. Expensive when the acid has damaged the ecu.

Swapping the Ecus will help diagnose the fault but the drivers side does left and right mirrors, so don't expect the problem to swap sides.

Hope the links work.

Hi John,

Under each front seat.
Depending on the year of your car you may have to ECU under each seat.
On my 1997 Contiental R, for the left driver side, seat ECU is the left one when you are sit in the car, same for passenger seat, the left one ( more difficult to take out)

Don't throw anything away, there is the best specialist in UK to completely renovate them, even i fhe tracks are dammager by acid from batteries.

Hre is an interesting topic

And for those who have original alarm, this is another main important issue, except for European cars from aabout 1996 with Clifford alarm. There is no battery on ther ECU...
When the battery leak you might not be able to close the door with remote control.
This battery should be replaced too with ECU seats batteries.
