Somebody posted that the outside air temperature sensor is on the bottom of the passenger mirror. I don't think it was there on my 08. Some tidbits from service manual...
C650 Ambient Air Temperature (AAT) sensor; (on bottom of passenger mirror).
Ambient temperature sensor (optional — can be serviced separately from the mirror)
When the vehicle is started using the remote start feature and the outside temperature is less than 0° C (32° F), the heated mirrors will be activated. No climate control adjustments are recognized during remote start operation. Once the ignition is cycled to the ON position, the climate control system returns to the previous settings
Assuming we live on a perfect world, can I add the extended power mirrors to my truck
I am assuming as I have the XLT package the mirrors do not have motors so I would need to orders those.
If I were to order them are all the harnesses in place already so I just have to plug and play?
This would also pertain to the drivers door mounted control switch
Is what i am proposing even feasable?
Anything possible if you want to put the time & money into it.
I don't think it's just a matter of adding the motors. You'd be better off ordering the complete unit that power folds and extends. You Probobly won't be able to tie into your existing mirror adjustment stick because your truck didn't come with them, but this will give you the opportunity to install them how you wish. Maybe set them up to open/close with the ignition on/off or something. Just a thought.
