Installing Heated Mirrors
Correct, and if you follow the link I posted above than you also have the ability to enable global windows. (Use your remote to put the windows up or down). That feature is only if you have express up/down windows on all for doors.

|JayDeZ||Wait. So the ability to easily upgrade is based on the intelligent access (key vs no key)? I thought it was dependent on the type of power windows. My SEL has an actual key but auto up/down on all 4 windows. Can I plug-and-play heated mirrors? I can't stand that they don't even clear rain on the highway (stupid aerodynamics). I would love to have heated mirrors again like on my past 2 cars.|

Otherwise, if your Focus has IA, you'll need not only the heatable mirrors but also the LF and RF door modules, (P/N's above post). After everything is installed, update the BCM by selecting the "long arm heated mirror"option and you should be in business. My mirrors also had the puddle lights so I went ahead and enabled those as well. Hope that cleared things up a little.|

So I'm trying to piece the information here together in a summary. I'll edit this post as people correct me.
-SE or SEL models without intelligent access can simply replace their mirror assemblies with ones which are heated, and plug in the wire. No BCM updates required.
-Models with intelligent access need to replace the mirror assemblies, replace both front door modules; then update the BCM using FOccCus (select "long arm heated mirror" option). No complicated wiring is required as mentioned in previous posts.

|Titanium Tony||After reading the following thread; http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/mk3-focus/402666-focccus-central-ecu-config-edit.html, I was able to enable my heatable mirrors that I bought almost two years ago. I also had to buy two new door modules (CP9Z-14B291-E and CP9Z-14b291-H) right and left front door modules that have the heat and puddle lamp capability. These were purchased from Tasca for around $80. 30 minutes later, I have both options enabled. This info is for folks, of course with IA.|

Thanks wylee, maybe I'll just do that. I do agree with you there. My 2013 Titanium came with the heated mirrors and seats, and I probably only used them three times this winter, which was one of the worst winters we've had here in the northeast in quite some time. It's just a shame that they're not plug and play across all of the models...

|wylee||Honestly, I'd wait to see if she really needs the heated mirrors. Had I known in the fall what I know now, I don't think I would've gone to the trouble of installing my heated mirrors. The Focus mirrors just don't get frosty like my Corolla mirrors did.|

It looks like I'm going to have to install these mirrors on my sister's CPO 2012 Titanium that she just got. We got a great price for her on a 2012 Titanium with 28k miles, and the dealer agreed to install the heated seats for free and give us the heated mirrors at cost so she'd have the winter package minus the mats.
I was just wondering if anyone had figured out another way to get these installed on a Titanium/ST w/intelligent access? I just wasn't sure if there wasn't some way to enable the feature through a programmer or through the FoCCCus software or something along those lines? I have no issues doing the wiring, but I'd like to avoid having to mess around with the actual pins in the harnesses if possible.

I don't remember all the panels and fasteners I removed, so I won't be doing a complete step by step write up. Sorry.
No connections were added to the modules in the doors. The 12V+ heat & puddle wires from the mirror to the module were rerouted to the new wires I ran from under the dash to the inside of the door. I only removed the door module pins so I wouldn't have loose unconnected pigtails coming out of the modules. The C238 heat connection is the only pin I added. The puddle lamps run directly to the battery via a relay. The relay is triggered by the footwell lamp ground.
Hope this helps.

Pictures showing which connector, where it's found. Which pins to add to what connector and where.
