Switch could be faulty.

Remove the panel it attaches to and check for voltage first. By that point you will aready know what it takes to replace it.

The heated mirror feature was discontinued starting with the 2003 model year.

The heated mirror feature will not work unless the car has the required wiring; which is wire (blk/wht) from the rear window defroster switch to the dash fuse box (fuse #18, 10 amp) and then out to the mirror connectors (lt bl/yel).

This wiring can be added as I did when I replaced my manual mirrors with folding, heated power-mirrors
