Mine stopped working for several years, but in the past couple of months has decided to fix itself and now works again without so much as me even bothering to look at it.
I found out today that I do in fact have headlight washers! I was expecting to see washer keys on the bumpers, but the panels that look like blanks open up to jet fluid onto the lights!

I also discovered the trip computer is in fact activated!
I was messing with the stalk while the engine was off and it was showing nothing. However with the engine on it shows all the options expected, eg miles to empty tank etc

Ah, so you reset the Chair-Steering wheel interface and then it started working? This is the problem with most cars tbh.
