I didn't realize the power mirrors could not be folded/unfolded manually without damage to the activating system. Not a good thing if that is the case. I have folded mirrors from time to time when the person parking has done so in a way that makes it difficult to get by, or open the car door without hitting the mirror housing. Never thought about it, now I will be more considerate and only fold them if I absolutely have to. You might be able to get a new folding mirror from a dismantling yard for cheap. Good luck and I hope it is just a system failure you can reverse.
