Side mirror are not heating up when I press the defrost button it blinks

My car has 74000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. In most cases when this occurs, it’s due to an electrical fault; either a relay from the switch to the mirror heating element or the switch itself. The best way to diagnose this issue is to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to complete an electrical problems inspection.
