I can't tell squat from the service manual. I'd sure be happy if that ends up being the case, because I'd really like to have them.OurPathfinder wrote:So, does anyone know if Nissan uses the same wiring harness for heated mirrors on the S, SE, and LE?

The Canadian spec base models have heated mirrors and are built in the same plant. On the other hand when I asked about it my local parts guy said they were not the same harnesses... Doesn't make sense to me.OurPathfinder wrote:So, does anyone know if Nissan uses the same wiring harness for heated mirrors on the S, SE, and LE?

My T4R mirrors fogged easy too but the heating got rid of the fog quick.Marginjoey wrote:Me too, why do they fog up so easy? I've never seen mirrors like these.. (I owned a glass shop for many years, trust me).

The heated mirrors and non heated mirrors use different plugs but the wire colors are the same.
The heated mirrors have 5 wires, Yellow, Purple and Blue for the glass movement, and then two black wires for the heater. I cut the connector off of the old, non heated mirror, and then using red crimp connectors, spliced it onto the new, heated mirror. This connects the Yellow, Purple, and Blue wires to the door harness and makes the mirror move up/down and left/right. After That was connected, I plugged it back into the door. This left the two defroster wires to deal with...
To connect the heater/defroster, I extended (use 16 gauge wire and a couple of crimps) the two black wires coming out of the new mirror and ran them through the door, into the dash, and then into the driver sill plate. I grounded one of them (doesnt matter which one) and the other wire, I connected to the thick, grey wire in the door sill harness. Thats the rear defroster wire. Now, whenever the rear defroster is on, the heaters in the mirrors comes on.
It took about 3 hours to do it all. I used about 15 red crimp connectors, 15 feet of red 16 gauge wire and 15 feet of black 16 gauge wire, and about 2 dozen zip ties.
