Question '03 Limited Heated Mirrors

Can Anyone for sure tell me the exact ways to tell if my car actually has these? I have the heated seats, I have the button for it under the radio on the far left? [ squiggly vertical heat lines], empty slot, the rear wiper/defroster?, empty slot, and then the cigarette lighter/power plug. My car does NOT have knock back mirrors and does NOT have the [heat wave squiggly] window on the mirrors. I have tried everything I know to try or check but IF they are heated they're not getting hot. I believe the rear window does defrost though and for sure wiper works. Any SURE FIRE SIGNS Based off the info mentioned? I don't want to pull the door panels or the mirrors .... unless I have to and am swapping the for sure heated '01-'02 knock back marked heated mirrors.

Hopefully somebody understands all of this and Thanks for input

my 02 has squiggley lines on the mirror face. I would like to think if they are not there, then it doesn't have heated mirrors.

My '02 had heated mirrors. If I recall, they were turned on by rear defroster switch under the radio. (A rectangle with wavy lines).

When factory installed, (until discontinued supposedly in 2003), the heated mirrors were wired to come on with the rear window defogger switch. The left switch in my attached picture.
Locate one of the door harness connectors. Open a front door to get idea where to look under the dash. Likely some plastic needs be removed.
If you have heated mirror functions, both L&R connectors will have a light blue/yellow wire at pin #1, a corner pin.

Thanks the 3 of you. It's a '03 Limited Edition supposedly fully loaded. I was asking because my '01 Limited's heated mirrors worked off the switch sanatanadharma posted that's on the left side. The 01' Limited's mirrors has the squiggly lines on the mirror glass. Main reason I asked was because reading around on here I thought maybe Chrysler just cut some corners by not putting those squiggly lines on the car in 2003 up . Anyways .... I believe I'll just change over the knock-back style mirrors and wire them as need be sometime. I kind of like the solid non knock back style mirror but I liked the idea of those heated mirrors in the winter They're awesome when SC gets snow and ice.

sanatanadharma that wood grain trim kit and those chrome a/c trim rings looks amazing in your car If I could afford it I think that would set off my black interior nicely

The rings are likely still available from Race and Street

Good karma alone supplied the out-of-production molded wood-grain interior set (8 pieces) in rare American Walnut rather than the usual Burl and Rose woods. Luck and diligent eBay shopping.

Thanks for that link sanatanadharma. I'll look it over. They came to pick up my '01 Limited PT last night to have it inspected to determine it's totaled. I guess once they make me a payoff and if I can buy it back I'll be doing some added OE swapping
