Greetings all:

I love my Ford Flex but I am having a weird problem with the passenger side mirror. Many times when I unlock the car with the key fob, usually when I am pushing the button twice, the power mirror starts trying to adjust itself upward and in fact goes so far that it starts "clicking and popping" as it has reached the end of it's travel range but the motor is still trying to move the mirror.

It's becoming quite annoying. The dealer has replaced the mirror and it still happens. Does anybody out there have any idea what is causing this?

I have a 2009 Flex SEL. It does have memory seats but I have set both memory options to be the same with the mirror in the desired position.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

It sounds like the motor is trying to drive the mirror to a memory position that is beyond the stops. It may be that the mirror needs to be "recaged". While I'm not sure of the stop mechanism in the Flex mirror housing, you may be able to reposition the mirror by pressing on the front in the opposite direction that the mirror drive motor is trying to position (in your case down). Again, I have had this problem on other cars, but haven't experienced it on the Flex yet. So, proceed with caution.

Hey! This was resolved by my dealer Metropolitan Ford in Eden Prairie, MN. It was a broken plug that connected the wires to the mirror. They "zip tied" the plug together until a new one could be ordered from Ford. That fixed it. I wanted to post this in case anybody else runs into it.

Thanks!

Mine does the same thing. But only once in awhile. Thank you for sharing. I'll try to get my fixed soon and I'll report back if it's the same repair.
