Another way to check is to pull your mirror off and see how many wires are going on the pigtail going to the mirror and then see how many connectors there are in the socket it plugs into. Example: pigtail may have 6 wires and socket may have only 3. so there for the other 3 wires can be your heated and turn signals.

I know a guy at work had a bought a 12 F150 and didn't have heated nor signals, and he bought OEM trailer mirrors with heat/signals. And he plugged them in and they work with no additional wiring
Let me know what you find; I would love to add this too.

Thanks.

I looked up the harness in the catalog and it appeared to only have one harness. If I'm able to swing it ill see of we have a signal/heat mirror in stock and ill try plugging it in to see.

So now that we have determined it might work. Does anyone know how to removed the color cap from the mirror? The new ones come painted black, but i want my Blue Candy caps on mine. The parts diagram on Rock auto look like they might just snap on and off.

They do just snap on and off. They are a pain the rear to remove. There are clips that you have to lift to get it off with out breaking it. Sometimes the mirror pops out and it makes it really easy, sometimes not lol. If you are going from non signal mirrors to signal mirrors you have to buy new caps because signals has a cut out for the signal.

Awesome!. Shouldn't cost that much you'd think.

I looked the cover up and it's 35ish, but on the hush hush the cost is 23 and change. Most dealers mark up 10%.

Does your car already have turn signals on the mirrors? Id love to add that to my car.

Do did anyone confirm if the wiring for the heated mirrors is actually present in the mirror? Just a matter of replacing the stock mirror pieces for the heated ones and plugging the wires onto it?
