Had somethign similar, my mirrors moved when i hit unlock on the fob...never figured what it was but I disconnected the harness on the back of the door panel that connects to the 1 2 memory buttons.

mirrors work and stay put, just lost memory function

Re: Power mirrors tilting all the way down
What you could try to do is move the mirror completely to all end stops electrically one or more times. There is a feedback potentiometer in the mirror, which gives a certain resistance value for the memory function. This potentiometer probably gets some dirt or corroision on the resistance surfaces and gives wrong resistance values, causing the mirror going to wrong positions.
By moving it all the way several times, the resistance surface is wiped clean and the memory function returns to normal.
