When I put my car in reverse the passenger side mirror automatically tilts down so you can see the curb but it doesn't return to the original position. I am constantly re-adjusting it. Can I tur this feature off or how do I stop it from doing this? Brian.

Check "Personal Choice" features in the owner's or service manual. For example see https://my.buick.com/content/dam/gmownercenter/gmna/dynamic/manuals/1997/buick/riviera/1997_buick_riviera_owners.pdf

Flip the mirror control to "R" right side. That disables the feature.

You're welcome. Mine works as it should, but in the winter months, I disable it in case the mirrors freeze up with ice and snow.

That makes sense, my car is now garage after 20 years of laying outside and rotting LOL.

Using a Tech II the reversing mirror can be re-set. It's a set point just like the set point for Personal Choice, but the drivers door buttons don't let you get to set it (I was told).

I bet there is a work around such as setting the mirror with the driver's door's mirror keys while car is in reverse, pressing set, then some other button or sequence of buttons but I don't know what that might be.
