OK, the strangest thing has started happening to me. I start the car, push the memmory button 2, everything adjusts for me. I drive away and about 2 minutes go by and then I notice the drivers side mirror starts to tilt towards the sky. This happened to me twice today. I don't know what's going on and this never happened before. Any ideas?
- when it happens again, pull over, put the car in park, readjust your passenger side mirror and resave your memory setting by holding down the memory button until it beeps (I presume you know how to do this but, just in case...).
I had the same problem (mirror w/ a mind of its own) a few months back, however, it was on the passenger side. Not sure if it had anything to do with it, but it happened during heavy rains for 2 straight days. After the rain stopped and all was dried out, the mirror returned back to normal. Have you had heavy rain lately? good luck.
This happens to me a lot with the passenger side mirror.
Brought it in. Dealer tells me it just needed re-programming.
Picked up the car.
Left the dealership.
Was good for a day.
Then this weekend, I was merging off the highway... took a look, and the mirror was pointed down to the ground.
I am still amazed at the issues I am having with this CTS as compared to my 2004. Amazing.

Re: Need help with drivers side mirror problem
My '08 driver's mirror would not always properly adjust back after using the reverse dip feature. Big problem when merging onto the highway, with mirror pointed skyward. The dealer didn't find anything wrong. I noticed that it only occurred when the mirror switch was in the off position, with no LED's lit. If I kept the switch in the "driver's side adjust" position, with the LED lit, then it did't happen. I tried turning it off a few times, and the problem reappeared, so I eventually left it on, and no more aggravation. Try playing with the switch position and see if that helps.
Hey guys, thanks for the responses. Here's what I did. I just reprogrammed the memory positions with them in the correct position. Fixed the problem. No idea why it was doing it. About a month later the passenger mirror did it twice. Didn't do anything and it stopped doing it. I think as you said all the rain may have caused something to happen, although I don't know what. We've been getting a ton of it. Either way, it seems fine now and it's been about a month.

How do you turn the mirror adjustment led off I cannot figure it out, I thought you would push the middle of the selector, but nothing happens the led stays lit.
Hello guys, my drivers side mirror does nothing at all. I put it in reverse and it wont flip down, I try to adjust it and nothing happens. I checked the fus and it was fine. Pass mirror works well. Any ideas???
