I would imagine it's a duff motor. Only way to check really would be to get a multimeter on it and check for a supply.

Its quite a common problem. There's a small resistor in the mirror, that fails sometimes and needs replacing. Honda will try and sell u a new mirror for around 280, this part is only 31 I think and can be replaced yourself. Have a look for it on other threads, il try and find the part number tonight and hopefully that will help

If u take the wing mirror plastic cover off, you will see a small black box about 1inch square, it has 2 wires in it which I think are blue and brown. It simply unclips. Takes about 5 min start to finish
