SOURCE: when I close the mirrors they immediatly open again

There are micro switches located in the mirrors. A metal tab is broken on one of the mirrors micro switches. Take off the painted cover to your side mirrors and remove a black plastic cover that has wires coming out. The switch will come out with the cover. Inspect for damage. If the metal tab is broken off then a new side mirror will need to be purchased. Could be the drivers side or the passengers side, caution when removing the painted covers, the tabs break if your not careful with them.

I have a Mercedes 311 sprinter which seems to only blow cold air I have replaced the termostat but still have the problem of cold air.

As you are stating that it is a 2010model you should go to the dealer you got it from and let them fix it under warranty, replacing thermostat does not solve the problem as it the heater core that either needs to be bled or replaced.
