It depends what you are missing, like heated mirrors, electric adjustment. They probably won't do anything until you activate the options in lexia.

If its the heated window option, this is activated when the rear heated window is engaged, but I don't know if the computer get involved with this (probably).


I forgot to mention the external temperature sensor found on some models..
