Well, had my first warranty repair. Everybody knows that the outside mirrors are automatically heated whenever the car is running (if you didn't, now you do
). My driver's side mirror decided to stop heating up and it's getting replaced. Everyone might want to check theirs out. Next time you park your car for the night, touch the surface of your mirrors...they should be fairly warm to hot to the touch. You'll know if it's not working because it'll be as cool as your windows. Do this at night so that the sun isn't playing a part in warming up the surface of the mirrors.

While we're on the topic of warranty repair, did you know that Lexus will replace your windshield wiper refills for you under warranty? Take advantage of it if your wipers streak...

mine has the same problem... i figured i would let them know next time i come in...
my passenger side mirror works great though.
i just need to let them know before winter
so that it would be that much more useful.

I never really had a problem with mirrors fogging around here, so I pulled the mirror heater fuses. Just another power drain...

If I ever take the car into the Sierras in the winter I will put the fuses back in.

I thought the heated mirrors only came on when you put on the rear de-fogger, I guess they changed it because I think thats what older toyotas did.

I may try removing the fuses as well. I still don't understand why they didn't provide a switch to turn them on like on other cars. Seems like an unnecessary power drain.

i'm not sure.. but in pulling the drl's i think it may have freed up a little more juice to my mirrors... and it may have
fixed my small problem of the driver side not working. i'm not sure... but i'll keep an eye on it tomorrow morning for sure.

I don't have my manual in front of me but I believe that is the correct one. It is the middle one that is in the left column of fuses on the passenger side. I pulled mine out and the mirrors are cool now.
