Not all vehicle vehicles will be equipped with heated outside rearview mirrors. If yours is, this can be a handy tool to provide extra visibility in the colder months. Your side and rearview mirrors will automatically heat when the rear window defog button is selected. The rear window defog button, labelled with a symbol of a rectangle with wavy arrows pointing upward on top, is located in the center of your dashboard near all other climate control buttons. When selected, the button will illuminate and deluminate to indicate whether the mode is on or off respectively.
