Heated mirror not working?

hey guys i need a little help. There was a little frost on my truck this morning on the way to work. I turned on the defroster and after a while i realized that the passenger side mirror was defrosted but the driver side one was still frozen. Any help on what the problem might be and how to fix it?

Unless you added heated mirrors they are not a factory feature.

I've hadn't heard that the mirrors are an option in 09's. How do you turn them on?

you just turn on the defroster. Part of the cold weather package.

Heated mirrors on second gens are not a factory option. I could see dealer installed, but it's definitely not factory or port.

I have an 09 and I even asked the dealer about that before I bought my truck and he told me it isn't an option. There's a guy on here that rigged up some 4runner mirrors, I'm not sure if they're heated, I know the have the lights in them that shine down on the ground, but can't remember if they are heated. He paid an arm and a leg for too.

I never heard of this package. Definitely not from factory, but could be a dealer's customization though. Have you talked to them yet?

maybe we all have heated mirrors, just none of us figured out how to work them.

All you guys are right!!!! i found my old window sticker and i see nothing on there about a cold weather package. Looks like the salesman either lied to me or didn't know what he was talking about.

Come-on, salesmen don't lie, and they all know what they're talking about, don't they?
