No switches for the mirror heater. When your OBC (on-board computer) goes "ding" to warn that the temperture is 38'F, it turns on the mirror heater.


I drove to work this morning through thick fog, at around 5.30am. When I pulled up at work I noticed the drivers mirror was perfectly clear, but the passenger's was misted up. The drivers was warm to touch, so I guess they are heated. My question is how are they controled - there are no switches, so it must be automatic? Any help would be useful.
