It might have something to do with the temperature/location sensor. Have it checked out by Toyota.

sounds like a sensor problem.

Might need to be reset (should be a way to do this)

Could also be broken.

Just checked my papers that came with my car and I had a sheet with the instructions to the Mirror. Under trouble shooting it says

The visual display reads "OC".
The Mirror detects that the temperature sensor is open. Check the temperature probe for damage and connection to Mirror via harness.

The probe should be attached to your front bumper and also check you wiring harness, hope that helps.

btw, problem fixed a few weeks ago. the sensor wasn't attached to the harness. it's clipped underneath the front bumper along the center for anybody who might encounter this problem in the future. thumbsup
