Sounds like the switch is sticking. Try to clean the switch with contact cleaner, or spary it with WD-40 to see if it will help????

2003 BMW x5 rear view mirror fell off how to get it back on?

if the mirror clips/slides onto a small bracket that is incorporated into the windshield then it is a case of sliding it back on , check that the ridge either side of the mirror bracket are'nt cracked or chipped as then the mirror wont stay in place ,on some models the mirror base sticks directly to the windshield so will need to go to a repair shop to get the appropriate glue , hope that makes sense

Saturn ION 2 rearview mirror is still fully attached but when you move mirror into a position it will not stay in that position.

Time to replace the mirror...the circulating ball must be jammed or worn out...At the bottom of the mirror head that attaches to the windshield is an allen screw head or small Phillips head...this must be loosened for the mirror assembly to pull off of the windshield...Best bet is to try your local salvage yard for a Saturn replacement..."Pic A Part" is a national yard...You should try working with an old mirror so you don't damage your current mounting...of course if the windshield magnet comes off, it can be re-attached with mirror adhesive stores and auto dept at Walmart...Hope this helps.

Driver's side mirror won''t stay in the mid-position

Check the hinge on the doorpost,,,its likely that the pin holding the arm that holds mid open position has sheared (look at other door and You will see how it's set up) If it;s broken you can use a small bolt or even a cut off nail to replace it!

Electric mirrors on my Amanti not staying fixed when set after cutting engine off

I've noticed a similar problem. Try manually setting the mirrors and seat and then set them as setting one or two on the memory. When you get out, hit the lock button on the key-less remote (in lieu of the lock button on the door) and see if that locks them in for you.
