Open all windows and moonroof is still an available option.

I did it myself using Techstream and one of the knockoff Mini VCI cables they sell on Amazon. It took a while to get the software installed properly on my laptop but there are instructions out there if you Google for 'Techstream'. Also the first cable I bought was defective so I had to return it an buy a second one.

Do you have a model built for the US market? You show a Canadian flag. My understanding that Canadian market cars do not have Remote Connect which is apparently required for these functions. I have an AWD Limited, which has pretty much everything you can get here.

2019 Limited AWD. Ruby Flare Pearl. Black interior.

I have a Canadian Trail trim. Now when I hold down the unlock button on my smart key all the windows go down and the moonroof opens at the same time.

Sorry. My mistake. This is a function enabled by the dealer. The default is "Off". Pg 686 of the Owners Manual. There is no indication that Remote Connect is required.

Called the dealer, he said:

They don't know what to say or do.
Is there a cost? Dunno
Anybody done it? Dunno
Can I do it? nope
All this grand accumulation of knowledge was shared with me after being on line for over 20 minutes, (was in a traffic jam anyway).
I'll just wait for the first complimentary check up and ask.
Advise to new owners, have them activate these systems before taking delivery of the vehicle, (if. you actually want them activated).
I'm not really interested in the Wifi or cell connection to open or close or turn on anything, just wanna open the car windows w/out getting inside that preheated seat in 90 degree heat.
PS, it has to be done by the dealer, according to the manual.

Happily retired and doing nothing about it
