Briefly pressing the button will move the mirrors, but only back to the wrong position. The off-side mirror is usually OK, but the near-side mirror always points as far down as it can.

Can any of you whiz kids out there offer a solution, or at least know what is causing the problem?

I cant be certain if I can help ..and I do not have the manual with me.
I had similar thing when I used for the first time the second key card recently on holiday. The mirrors were way out the seat was not set correctly and the radio was not my usual stations.

Are you trying to reset the mirrors with the ignition on but before you start the engine. Having set it that way then press and hold the seat adjust button and remove the card. try it afresh to see if it has resolved the problem.

This might be a load of old twaddle, but hope it helps.
