2013 all weather package: how do i turn heated mirrors/windshield wiper area on?

I have no idea. It's not in the manual insofar as I can tell.

Thanks!

On my '11 AWP they come on when I use the rear window defroster.

Mediocrity:
You push the button on the climate control panel that has a picture of which defogger/defroster is on - there are 2 of threm - it would be the one to the right of the front windshield defogger/defroster button. It works in conjunction with the rear window defroster/defogger - when the rear one is on, the side mirror defogger is on as well!

Thats good to know, especially with the 2 feet of snow we got at our house but they were probably working and I didnt even know it because I had the rear defrost on a lot the past couple of days.

And just for information, your Dealer can program the rear defroster so it will remain on any time the switch is pushed on. In cold weather it is a nuisance having it turn itself off after a few minutes!

So the warming of the front wiper also comes on when the rear window defroster activiated? I thought that I read that from some on eposting here that these items were programmed to come on when the temperature got below a certain level.
