    I would check to make sure that voltage is getting to the mirror motor. If it is, your switch/wiring is good and I would suspect the motor or connection to the motor. Do the other functions work for the passenger mirror? I am assuming that you have turn signal and mirror tilt on the mirror?

    Ok, I would suspect the motor that folds the mirror may have given up the ghost then.

    Did find this:

    Re: Power Folding Mirror Motor Replacement
    Well, I started again this morning on the mirror and figured out the problem. The connector that goes to the motor was rusted out. I wasn't getting any continuity to the main connector that goes inside the driver door. I tried removing each of the 4 pins, sanding them, and putting them back and no matter how many times I tried I couldn't get a connection. So I just cut them and spliced them with a butte connector. I would have used some heat shrink on top if I had it but I was working in a friends garage. Took it over to the truck, plugged it in, and for the first time in a year it moved. Put the entire thing back together and on my way. Other's have reported this issue on here as well as the other tundra forum. Most just ended up replacing the mirror, but if I had to guess they probably all have a corroded connection as well. Since the connector is mounted horizontally I think water blows inside the mirror around the chrome molding, drips onto the top of the motor where the connector is mounted flat, it corrodes, and they stop folding in. Was an easy repair. T10 takes out all of the screws inside the mirror, six total, to get to what you need.

    Give it a little push. I've had one of mine over unfold once, that was strange. I folded it and unfolded it, and it hasn't happened since. But winter is on the way, I suspect that ice can get in there and make things wonky. I'd try that first before trying to chase electrical gremlins, they can be infuriating.
