Default 2003 SSEi mirror question

I drove a couple 2003í* over the weekend, and noticed on one car that when I backed up the right outside mirror automatically adjusted down to see what might be lurking about near the back of the car. The other car didnít do this. Is this some sort of option that may be on some cars but not on others, or is it something that can be programmed on/off, or is one car just broken?

Not sure if this is a mechanical issue or if this should be in general chat. MODS, you be the judge!
Earn your keep. :P

I am pretty sure this it is programmed into the driver setting. You can turn it on and off when programming driver settings. I think it is a basic option more or less put on all atleast ssei'*

If you want all of the information on it, you can read it here.
OUTSIDE MIRROR DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

Or - the part that addresses your specific question is this.

MEMORY MIRRORS - PARALLEL PARKING MODE
If the vehicle is equipped with memory mirrors, it is equipped with the parallel parking mode feature. For this feature, the driver door module (DDM) communicates with the powertrain control module (PCM) over the class 2 data link. When the gear selector is shifted to reverse, the PCM transmits this status via a class 2 message to the DDM. The DDM sends this message on to the front passenger door module (PDM) over the power door serial data circuit. The PDM then applies battery voltage and ground to the vertical motor of the RH outside rear view mirror to tilt the mirror down 7 degrees . This allows the driver to see the curb while parallel parking. When the gear selector is shifted out of reverse, the PDM drives the vertical mirror motor to return the mirror to its previous position.

My 01 has this feature. Be advised, there is a tech pub out about the 00 to 02 mirror tilting down and not restoring to the original position so check it before you buy. My mirror is a victim of this.
