The instrument cluster receives the value of the ambient temperature from the outside temperature sensor and makes this available via the PT-CAN. The Body Domain Controller evaluates the signal and triggers the activation of the mirror heating via the local interconnect network bus. The control of the heater output is dependent on the ambient temperature.

The mirror servomotors are activated by the mirror electronics. The request for adjusting the exterior mirror is received by the mirror electronics via the local interconnect network bus.

The exterior mirrors still retain the folding in function, but now they can be programmed to automatically fold inward when the vehicle is locked. This feature must be activated in the CID by selecting My Vehicle.
