Odd issue when unlocking doors via remote

I have a strange issue that comes and goes but only happens when I unlock my truck with the factory remote. As soon as I press the unlock button on the remote my drivers side power mirror adjusts up as far as it can go then starts clicking like it's trying to go up more. After about 5 seconds after I press the button the mirror stops moving and I'll adjust it back as needed.

I have no idea why it's doing this but when it does, it'll do it every time for a few days then stop and act normal. I can only assume that there is a short somewhere in the electrical.

I'll also say that it will happen regardless of what position the mirror switch is in and doesn't happen at all with the interior unlock button or the exterior keypad, ONLY using the remote it does this.

Any one else have this problem?

Your factory remotes control memory settings 1 and 2 on your memory for power seats, mirror and pedal position. Whichever one is tied to that remote, is causing the adjustment. My mirror was doing something similiar once that as best I could tell, was due to a poor connection on the mirror switch. I popped it out of the driver door, reseated the connections, and it has never done it since. I would first pop that out, clean and reseat the connections, then set your memory 1 and 2 as you want. If you are the only driver, set them the same.

The manual will confirm the way to set them but iirc, set what you want, then hold each button down(memory 1 and memory 2) for 3 seconds till you here a beep.

The point of the remotes is to where the remote you have, will cause the memory to adjust to your preferred settings and the remote another driver would have, would memorize their settings.

Thanks for the reply, I think it's odd that it only happens every once in a while. I started about 3 months ago and lasted for about 2 weeks then went away for about a month. Then it came back and lasted a few weeks and now it's been gone for a couple weeks. I'm the primary driver but my memory setting do have my wife and I both programmed. Neither program actually has that mirror programmed that out of place.

I guess I'll have to check the connectors first which I'm assuming is where every other mirror connectors are at behind the door panel, correct?

The connector I reseated is the one under the mirror adjusting switch. The panel pops out easily there and there are, I believe, 3 connectors. I reseated all of those. Mine began when I picked up my truck from having tint installed. My assumption is when he pulled the door panels, the connection wasn't made properly. Reseated those and it went away. Mine didn't just happen when I would press a button though....driving down the road it would randomly take off....made me afraid it was breaking something....but hasn't happened since pulling those and doing that.

Thanks Jason, I'll check those connectors first. My truck may have a ghost of something messing with me?!? Who knows.
