I know there are various threads here involving heated mirrors & rear defrosters not working, however none of them have a definitive end point.
I recently (on 9/5) purchased an 07 DGM LGT. In the past couple days the temp has dipped (I'm in MO btw) and it has been damp.
I press the button for the rear defrost (which as I understand it should also fire the heated mirrors as well), I can hear the relay click, and the climate control indicator turns on. However, the glass is still cool to the touch after being initiated for 30+ minutes.
So I have a few questions:
Do the mirror indicators light up when powered (amber in color I would guess)?
Is the system common ground between the rear and side mirrors?
I have tinted windows, I realize it is possible someone pulled a connector when doing it (by the previous owner), could this be the cause of all the frustration I am experiencing?
I would like to actually close out this thread with the resolution to my issue. Rather than pointing me to the SubaruTech site for the WD, I would appreciate any input from others with experience first.
