I did a search and found a couple posts on this subject, however my mirror seems to be acting a little differently... Yes, I do understand how to program and save the settings for the mirror position and mirror dip position.

When I both set up how I like them, they seem to work fine the next 1-3 times I get in and use the vehicle. Then all of a sudden I put the car in reverse and the mirror does one of a couple things...

1) It may go all the way down (further then I had stored) and return to the proper position when in drive.
2) It may go all the way down and stay in that position when in drive until I manually change it.
3) It may turn in toward me the driver and return to the proper position when in drive.
4) It may turn in toward me the driver and stay in that position when in drive until I manually change it.
5) It may move somewhere else.

This has been happening for the last 2-3 days and it is driving me nuts! Lazy entry is OFF.

Any help?

FYI: This is only happening to the driver's side mirror. The passenger side seems to remember everything and work properly...

Is it possible to reset the ECU that controls the memory to the seats/mirror? How?

There is a memory module replacement TSB if you haven't gotten it already. Once you get it, the TSB states you have to program ALL keys with ALL memory positions (1,2,3). This solved my issues.

I agree with 3E. If possible, first make sure Reverse Mirrors Dip is enabled in the Settings menu and then try reprogramming the dipped mirrors position for ALL 3 seat memory buttons. If you use both keys, repeat the same procedure with key #2. It's a bit time consuming to do, but Land Rover said a while back that because of a software issue in a batch of seat memory ECUs the dipped mirrors could start acting up if, for example, you accidentally turn Reverse Mirrors Dip off and back on from the Settings menu (the memory will clear and you will have to "teach" the position to the module once again.)

It is just weird that they do random things... Sometimes in, others out and sometimes way to far down...

I have reprogrammed all using my key, but will try using all keys tonight.

Yup. Mine pointed at the sky when backing out of the garage... :lol:

If reprogramming doesn't do the trick you may want to check if the wiring going to the module - mounted under the driver seat - shows obvious signs of chafing / friction wear, or perhaps one of the connectors behind the module has come partially loose from its socket. Otherwise your 2006 driver seat module may indeed be defective (although I find it very strange that it would only start acting up now and only affect one mirror, after all this time.) The TSB for this issue is # LTB00042, attached below. But if your factory warranty is up it won't do you much good I'm afraid, and you may be stuck with the repair bill unless you have an extended warranty that covers these electronic modules. /:(

PS: Didn't you also have some front power window issues recently, and found a loose or corroded wire in a harness to be the cause? Perhaps something similar happened to the electrical harness powering the driver's door mirror, especially if the passenger side mirror appears to be working fine and only the driver side is consistently acting up.

So all I did was position them again and they have been working perfect since last night... Weird?

Nah. They'll work fine for <insert any time period here> and then all of a sudden start acting up again. `)

And its back. I will follow the steps in the TSB tonight.

You'll most likely have to get the memory module replacement and then follow the instructions, but you never know.

I ordered the memory module today also. This is going to get taken care of one way or another...

After installation did you perform the memory settings for all keys again?
Only the keys that I use every day. The other set has been in the safe since I bought the vehicle... Do you think that could be an issue?

According to the TSB, yes, all keys need to be programmed into all the memory positions. Crossing my fingers for you. :pray:

let us know if you get this resolved. is the module replacement free even though out of warranty?

Not free outside of warranty. Sorry
