Heated clears off ice on the mirror by heating it. Stock ones usually don't I don't know if it would work if you don't have the stock setup.

to look totally stock, look to buy a switch, wiring harness, and two mirrors. I honestly don't think it's worth the $. Give the mirrors a good cleaning (after you replace the one), then put rain-x on them. really helps keep frost off the mirrors. Harder when your car cools down overnight outside, then frost is pretty much inevitable, ya know?

i love heated mirrors on the es, on foggy morning and or when it rains, just a trun on the switch and within minutes the mirror is visible...only downfall is that it leaves water sports!

This is a little off the topic. I bought a used 98 Camry LE and its side mirrors aren't working at all. I don't have the owner's manual either. So, can you tell me which fuse controls the side mirrors so that I can check if its blown?
Thanks.

The Les' did come with the heated mirrors, but they were a option on that model, so not many have them. My only concern on switching to the heated mirrors is that you might have to install a relay to get them to work, but I'm not quite sure. The equipment may already be there and it might just be a plug and play. But I'm a bit a hazy on it.

Yeah, there is a fuse for heated mirrors, but that doesn't mean you have them. I don't have heated seats, and yet I still have a fuse for them. Besides, don't heated mirrors have a little symbol on them that says they are?

Edit: Sorry wasn't reading. I don't think it would be very hard to put heated mirrors on there, but as it's been said before they don't help much.

My wife has a 98 XLE we purchased new. I know the XLE's have heated mirrors but there is no manual switch to turn them on and off. They simply go on when you turn the dashboard switch to defrost mode.

i think it would be nice to have heated mirrors up north where it snows as it will come in handy. Not in the hot and humid south.

I just had the 2000 XLE's passenger side mirror replaced. If I recall right, the harness connector is a 5 wire plug.

2 for heat, 3 for movement.
Now I am interested to look on my 98

Would imagine you are going to have to have some kind of switch or relay or something to actually be able to supply power to them once you get them on. Like Ranger X said jsut because you ahve a spot for the fuse doesnt mean anything is hooked to that fuse. I have several empty fuse locations for a lot of stuff that isnt on my car.
