Ok, latest is that I'm getting 8v DC at fuse # F47 (heated mirrors@pwr dist box underhood), when the rear defrost button is engaged. Somehow I'm missing that voltage at the mirror terminals. Bigbot45 or SCM, did you guys find out anything else about either heat or puddle lamps?

After looking through the wiring diagram, I have a few running theories. If you do not have Door Modules but do have front and rear power windows, then you always have power to the turn signals and heated mirrors. This may be the configuration Soaring Cowman is in. If you do have door modules, then the lack of functionality is either fixed by a programming of the BCM, or a replacement of the door modules as I noticed on the parts website with ones that mention puddle lamps. I don't know how many parameters are available at the BCM, but the shop manual only says one should change a handful, for which the parameters we are looking for are not included.
The door modules seem necessary if you have either full auto up/down across all doors or IA. The door modules do not seem programmable; so we may have to replace both the mirrors and door modules to get full functionality. We definitely need to know if this is a BCM function or not.
The car does seem to use one harness for most things; the pins are re-used for different things depending on the configuration.

Wow Bigbot! Thank you for your thorough investigation work. So it may seem like it's either a completely new door module in both front doors or possibly getting the function programmed into the BCM. Now comes up the question; Is having this feature worth the expense of getting new modules or a dealership visit for a reprogram of the BCM?

Plugged it in and all the ice started melting, and I felt the glass as well and it was warm. But as said prior the puddle light didn't work, I'm gonna ask the diag tech at work tomorrow if he can plug up to my car and see if that is a setting that he can turn on.
Hi SC,
Were you able to check the BCM? Does it have parameters for the mirrors?

No sorry guys I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, I'm making a note to my self now to check once I get into work. The door module does explain why ti tony defrost doesn't work. Because I know for the most part all Ti have on push up/down for all windows which means he has a door module were I don't.

I would love to at least have signal mirrors. I have always wanted them on my car! Does anyone know if you can just go into the dealership and order them? I will only buy parts from the manufacturer. It freaks me out to buy from anywhere else xD

the Ford accessory site doesn't have them ):

I'd also love to have heated mirrors, but am impartial about the puddle lights. I already have signal mirrors, as mine is a 2012 SEL 5dr with leather but without the winter package.

I really want to add ALL the cold weather package items just like the came from the factory, the main ones being heated seats, heated mirrors, and the active grille shutters (which I already started a thread about that one).

Definitely watching for this threads outcome.

The parts have shipped; I'm not sure when they will arrive. I just hope I don't have to take apart the door; I'd rather not risk the rattles if I don't have to.

Hey Bigbot, what parts are you receiving and did you find out anything else regarding the door modules?

Not much. I asked the place I bought the parts from if they could tell me what modules came in the door but they couldn't look up my VIN. When the door modules come I'll try my local dealer and see if they can tell me.

I ordered both new door modules and new mirror assemblies.
