@  Stratuscaster : (18 April 2014 - 09:46 PM) OK - 2014 SIM and AlternaSIM details posted up...
@  Stratuscaster : (18 April 2014 - 07:46 PM) Good grief. Not so good when you forget your own password to your own site.
@  KennyL : (18 April 2014 - 04:05 PM) Ran the car up and down the driveway, worked the coil-overs and spun the rubber some.
@  KennyL : (18 April 2014 - 04:04 PM) Well, cleaned the inside of the Stratus some today. Had to jump, but she still fires and runs. Also, since it's dried some I was able to rock it out of the holes the front tires were sunk into, heh. Need a good graveled area, can't afford a paved area just yet.
@  BeaterStatus : (18 April 2014 - 01:34 PM) Hey guys, hope life is giving you all time to work on your projects.
@  Dylan214 : (18 April 2014 - 12:27 PM) whats up guys
@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:41 AM) Really need to sorth through the random junk inside from where the wife and I moved so I can get back to stripping down.
@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:40 AM) With all the funky rain and snow, my Stratus has sunken somewhat into mud. I might need assistance moving it from its current location, heh. Dad can tug me out, I'm sure. Need to get it fired and roll it a bit again, been a while.
@  KennyL : (15 April 2014 - 04:01 AM) Fresh oil and filter for the Grand Prix yesterday. Gotta keep the supercharged daily screamer running right, heh.

I have a 2000 Cirrus with non-heated powered mirrors. My driver's side mirror got sheared off, so I'm trying to find a replacement. I can find plenty of manuals, and plenty of powered HEATED mirrors.

From what I understand, the difference between heated and non-heated is that the heated have an additional two wires for the heating elements, and of course this means a different connector.

My thinking is that I could get a heated mirror, cut off the connector, and figure out which of the two wires are for the heating elements, and cut those back. Use the old connector from my broken mirror, and I should be all set.

Does this sound reasonable? If so, does anyone have an idea how hard it'd be? I figure it shouldn't be all that hard with a multimeter and a little probing around.

Otherwise - anyone have a source for NON-HEATED powered mirrors? From what I've found so far, aftermarket only makes heated powered, and the salvage yards I've checked with only have broken mirrors.

I don't know much about heated mirrors but i know that you should be able to figure it out and the installation should be simple and it has to be a easy electrical thing. i think heated mirrors would come in handy after a frost or freeze never knoe when those come arround... id keep goin with the heated mirrors and try to figure it out... it would be a nice lil addition :naughty:
