Side mirror & memory function

When I use one of my car keys, the passenger side mirror does not work at all.

When I use the other key, the mirror glass starts moving to the left, and the mirror motor just won't stop--even continues for 30 minutes after the engine is shut off.

What could cause this weird behavior? I suspect it's linked to the seat / mirror memory, but not sure how...

You should run a diagnose via the obd2 plug and bmw software: those little engines often break and error codes are shown. For the first key, perhaps side mirror with rear gear not activated for that key.
