Thumbs down Heated Mirrors

Is there anyway to make sure my exterior heated mirrors are working?

Wait till cold weather and see if ice forms on them in the morning.

You could try turning them on and then holding an ice cube on them, if it starts to melt then they work.

My mirrors keep a light mist off of them also. There is water when you start the truck and pretty soon it is gone, same with a heavy dew.

You can actually touch them and feel the difference up to about 70 degrees. It was 63 here today and I reached out and touched my mirror. It was definitely warmer than the other surfaces of the truck.

They are always on so if they feel warm, they are working

I'll tell you what, I had a bunch of days this past winter when we got snow or ice, and ther mirrors didn't melt, so I don't think mine are working.

Heated mirrors are always on... they're not regulated by temperature.
