      I'm not sure if this thread is still active but thought I'd throw my 2 cents in as I'm planning on adding heated mirrors soon.
      I snagged that part along with all the other components recently, including the SJB recently to see what I can do. I noticed that the heated mirrors seem to be part of the DATC with some of the earlier Explorer/Mountaineer Limited/ Premier packages (07's at least). Maybe I'm wrong or there's something weird about how Ford implemented this.
      Personally I was just going to wire it up manually with a separate switch and the relays. This way I don't have to mess with the programming in the SJB.

      i was fixing a squeek in my driver door and took pictures of the harness for the mirrors, i will post them later.( Non Heated.) but i am hopping someone with heated could do that same, maybe the hiring pins line up differently?

      Rain-X always helped me on my previous vehicle without heated mirrors...it could be a temp fix until those heated mirrors are up and running. ;)

      I ordered some heated mirrors and will be receiving them soon...
      So looking at the wiring diagrams:



      show a relay in SJB for defrost and F13 (15A) that supply power to the relay (mirrors)
      how to enable it? - disconnect pin 86 of the relay from SJB and wire it to switch to ground - this is slightly dangerous since the supply to the relay is hot all the time - this means if the truck is off, and the (override) switch is turned on - the mirrors heaters will stay on.

      or figure out which setting SJB would enable that function in conjunction with defrost switch

      i bought the Muuth Systems heated mirror with blinker. i have installed just not wired as i ran out of time to wire them. should be done this weekend. i have some issues already tho. the mounting system on the back of the Muth mirrors is shallower then the stock mounting system ( i have pictures ) so it sits deeeper inthe mirror housing and it doesnt allow full articulation of the mirror adjustment.
