skiboarder119 What is the difference between long arm and short arm heated mirrors in focccus? When set to long arm I get no voltage to the mirrors (except 4v when the switch is of which I don't understand). When set to short arm I get a solid 12v at both mirrors with the switch on.

sailor I've got unheated power mirrors myself in an '04.

You happened on a thread for the MkIII ('12+) models, MkI section would be better if you want to talk about adding heat to your model.

Jerk2006 I'm new to this Talk forum I have a 2006 focus with power mirrors and no heat the plug that goes into the mirrors has 5 wires the power mirror only uses 3 of them

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.

Titanium Tony Models without IA, (intelligent access) do not require any modification other than to remove and replace your stock mirrors with heatable mirrors and you're good to go, nothing involving the BCM. 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.

skiboarder119 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.

usa414 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...

Thanks again!

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.
