lol ... talk about a delayed happy ending .... congrats
I dont believe that there are heated mirrors on my 05.
Early KJs include the heated wiring in the plug for the powered mirrors. So if you buy heated mirrors off eBay or other source its a simple plug-n-play. Remove the current mirrors replace them with the poweredheated units. Bob Sent from my iPhone using jeepForum
oe asked the dealer yet. If you have please let m eknow what they charged and what wording used... The dealer sales folks look clueless when I asked about when I can my car last week. Maybe I should have just gone to service instead. They can on the KKs provided you have the memory seat option (comes with the Premium Group II I believe).

I had my liberty in for its lube oil & filter when I asked about it. He made it sound like I was asking him to rebuild the transmission. I cold called another dealer about it and they also wanted 40 or so to do it. Id try the bet if the guys I was working with were cool but the guy I talked to at my dealership was a grade A jerk. Whenever I can get around to it Im going to fire off a letter to the
I thought the point of having auto-dip side mirrors was to help the driver in parallel parking (i.e. get closer to the curb without scraping a wheel). If that is the case why would you need to have the drivers side mirror dip at all True you might have to parallel park on the left side of the street in some circumstances but the driver is less likely to need the visual cue from the mirror since the driver is on the same side as a lefthand curb.
It is nice to have the drivers side mirror tilt down too. I often back into a parking spot and its easier to see the painted lines with the both mirrors down. I dont have much need to parallel park anymore but the passenger side mirror really makes that much easier. With the tilt down mirrors and the lights and backup beeps its pretty foolproof backing up. Im almost scared to back up my Dodge Ram that doesnt have any of the backup assists.

In CT Ive had them fog up many a time and the heat clears them up fast I also think it decreases the time the auto-dimming mirror takes to dim as the liquid crystal works faster at higher temperatures. As far as the wiring harness(es) go I do not know for sure Im meerly stating what I find in the service manual.

Also if you leave
In 03 they added the drivers side mirror to the auto-dim package. Quite frankly one of the better options on the jeep. The rear window is so dark it doesnt need a daynight feature but the side mirror is another story all together.
I live in the snowbelt on the southeast side of Cleveland Ohio. I regularly have to brush scrape wipe off snow slush ice water from my mirrors. Sometimes its snow-drift sometimes that plus melting and refreezing etc. Thisll be my first winter with heated mirrors and Im looking forward to it Of course its 55 degrees here now...
If its a sudden problem Id suspect the mirror switch being dirty or broken. Seems kind of strange that both mirrors would croak together.

So some points could work while others dont. And when you switch from left to right it could
