Couple of issues - door autolock and sidemirror autotilt

my car's got non threatening issues.

the door autolock and passenger side mirror autotilt (when reversing) stopped working. the autotilt is flaky bcos sometimes it works and most times it doesnt.

any leads to how to troubleshoot and hopefully fix these 2 issues.

Can't comment on autotilt because I disabled it myself, the door autolock, sometimes just needs a simple recode with BMW scanner. Should be the case for both.

Check that the mirror adjustment select switch is not set to the passenger mirror because I think that disables the autotilt.

that'd be strange why a recode would be the fix unless someone messed with codes?

No idea, this happens to me a lot too where one day the car just wont autolock anymore. Usually a restart remedies it. Also if you switched keys- this is also a culprit. The valet key doesn't do memory functions or any coding of the sort.
