O.k.,if no other interior lamps are staying on with this issue here the most common cause is a fault with what is called a Puddle Lamp Relay.It will stick on needing replaced.This relay is located in the Central Junction box fuse panel as shown below.In some cases you can tap on it and it may release and turn off the lights helping indicate it needs replaced but with it only causing the mirror lamps to stick on I'm fairly confident this relay is stuck on needing replaced.This fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering wheel/column near the brake pedal assembly.
