    Hey guys,
    How warm/hot ,to the touch, should the West Coast type (7x16") mirrors get when on? Mine don't seem warm enough to melt ice but I only had them on for about 7 minutes. ( just wired them in on an existing truck)

    And does anyone know if you buy the heated mirrors with the light in it does it just light when the mirror is on? It only looks like 2 wires coming out of the ones I saw,
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Don't know bout the west coast mirrors. But mine are off an 08 ford and I will say they get hot to the touch. Look again at your wires, should at least be 3 maybe 4
