New Jeep Recall Heated Mirrors

Just took the 2011 Wrangler in for the heated mirrors catching fire. Right now they hav no parts so they are pulling the fuse for the heaters in the mirror. No eta on parts yet. Wrong time of year to not have the heaters but, better than a fire. Life still goes on....

Got mine just the other day, no fix as of yet.........My recall letter stated that they would call/notify me when the parts/fix are in at the dealer's and ready to install. It made me laugh, with all the water leak troubles (Sued Chrysler)and now my mirror's are going to start a fire........Keep your insurance paid up!

Ale: Do still take it in and get the fuse pulled by them. Then your family will be safe.

OK, Seems the infamous "Water Leak" problems they have is the root of this recall!
Chrysler Recalls 786,000 Vehicles For Heated Mirror Short Circuits, More €“ News €“ Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog


Heated power side mirrors on the 2011–2013 Jeep Wrangler can short and cause a fire due to water dripping on the door panels, thus confirming the suspicions of Jeep devotees that the Wrangler was never meant to have heated power side mirrors (they became optional for the first time in 2011). Water on the door panels can run along the wiring harness inside the doors and trickle onto the connector, which can cause a short and a possible fire. Chrysler said it had tracked down 27 incidences after first learning of three Canadian Wranglers with damaged mirror connectors, which were traced to winter weather conditions. Chrysler redesigned the ground connection for the 2014 model year and will repair existing models starting in December by moving the mirror’s power cable away from intruding water and shielding it. A total of 313,236 vehicles are affected. No injuries have been reported.
