Mirror question for 2001 ford focus zx3

I have a 2001 ford focus zx3 dohc. I hit a deer recently and it took my mirror off. I have powered mirrors with out heat. The mirrors without heat have a 3 prong connector and with heat they have 5 prongs. Now when i went looking at the connector for the electrical wires i noticed it had a 5 prong hole connector on the inside of my car. My mirrors connect to that same head but only has 3 prongs. Could I just buy the heated mirrors with 5 prongs and put it on or is something probably missing to where i cant do that? Could anyone help im just curious because i live in the mountains and winter season is here and i wanted to just add the heated mirrors anyways. P.S. The 3 prong and 5 prong connectors from the mirror both connect into the 5 prong connector on the car. And if i cant just connect it and it work then what do I have to do to get powered mirrors. What fuses and what wires would I need and were do they need to be ran to thanks!

The rear defrost relay runs the heated mirrors according to the wiring diagrams I have. As you've discovered I think the car is pre-wired for heated mirrors. You need to add a fuse (location 50 - 7.5A may be slightly different for your year) if one doesn't already exist. The 4th and 5th pins on the connector should be the mirror heating element and ground. i haven't done this mod myself so it's all just an educated guess. FWIW.
