Power fold mirror issue?

Hello, I bought a 09 F250 back in May and I have noticed every so often when I was driving the passenger mirror was pointed at the ground. Not thinking anything about it(maybe I hit the knob as I was getting in or the door vibration). As I was leaving work today I unlocked the truck with the remote from just outside the passenger door, I heard the motor in the mirror running and watched it move. So I readjusted it back to where it should be and hit the lock and unlock, it did it again. So I then tried unlocking it with the keypad and the key and it didn't move. Has anyone else had this problem?
Other then that I love this truck and have had no issues as of yet.

Wonder if you got a bad switch with a short in it? This could suck if it starts draining your batt's in the winter time....

Yeah that could be. I better fix it soon it was down to 50* last night. What would be the best way to test them? I am still learning all these luxury features have had a bare bones 03 f-150 before.

Does your rig have the seat memory function? There may be an issue with the processor for that if it does...

I'm learning my "buttons" too! Just figured out the mirrors automatically fold away!!!

Yeah it does...now that you say it the seat seems like it moves as well...but I push the button it doesn't do anything. I'll have Ford look at it when it goes in for the free oil change in a few weeks. Hopefully just a program glitch or something like that.
I hate to admit this but it took me a week to figure out the climate control!!!
Folding mirrors are so nice for parking, no more worries someone will walk into them or hit them with a car as they drive by...

Had this happen on a car once... there was a feature for "curb view" for the passenger mirror so that you would run over anything with the tires while backing or parallel parking. It sounds like that is active and programmed in a seat memory function for either driver 1 or 2. You can usually turn it off in the program settings or just re-save or overwrite the passenger setting to a new setting based on a configuration you like.

Ok thanks for the advice, I'll give the manual a look at after work tomorrow... Guess my trip to Tennesse wasn't long enough to learn everything about the truck. Most of the things I have learned has been here or learning by accident.
