They either come on with the ignition or when you turn the heat selector to defrost. Not sure which, but there are no buttons to turn the mirror heat on seperately.

does the mirror have the defrost symbol on the out side. it should. there is 2 wires that are supposed to be hooked up to the mirror. did someone change the outside lenses or mirrors? if they are changed maybe the wiring is not pluged in.

IF you have heated mirrors as said before there is a symbol in the upeer outside corner of the mirror. And IF you do have them, they are ON all the time.

If you don't believe me touch them with the back of your hand when it's 100* + outside, no more questions after that...

They should automatically defrost when the key is on as long as it has the little defrost symbol on the mirror

I'm not telling you anything except what I know and have experienced. It will burn your little hand.

Either doesn't have it or the mirror glasses have been replaced before because they had been broken. I'm pretty sure that all the Lariat models had heated mirrors.
