Magical Mirrors!

I know this isn't a very high demand question, and it doesn't matter a whole lot to the performance of my Jeep. But, I do have an interesting question regarding my outside rearview mirrors.

I have a 98 Grand, and it has those memory mirrors where you push a button on your key fob, and it adjust the mirrors to the preset memory.

Well, I have noticed several times, when I get into my Jeep, that I have to push the preset number 1 (several times) to make the mirrors return to the correct spot. I don't think anyone is playing a trick on me, but no one else uses my vehicle, and so the mirrors should be in the same spot. Obviously I can just adjust the mirrors by using the control for the mirrors, but this does get annoying after having to readjust them every time that I get in.

By the way, the mirrors are always tilted in a downward direction from the last time that I left them.

I didn't know if anyone knew of a common problem that does this, or if I'm just losing it. Maybe I am just growing taller, and don't realize it. That would put the mirrors in a downward direction

Thanks for the info. I'll keep it in mind.

I haven't had any problems whatsoever with my windows, it's only the outside mirrors. And the mirrors only get affected while the vehicle is not running. I also don't have to use my key fob for the mirrors to go down. I don't lock my vehicle overnight, and when I get up in the morning, and go for a drive, the mirrors are tilted down, and I never used my key fob.

But that does bring up another interesting question. How far does your key fob work? Mine works at about 50 yards. Just wondering if my key fob could be dirty, or need a new battery. Not that it is affecting my mirrors, but something else to consider.
