Left mirror not working in cold weather (below minus 8 degrees C). Mirror Replaced. The lock mecanism in the the left passenger door did not work, a message telling the door was open, but the door was closed and had to be locked manually. The remote control was not working. A contact was replaced. The city safe suddenly activated in a cue when the nearest car was at least 5 meeters from my car. On the road there was some ice, and there was a sunny afternoon and they told me that could be the reason for city safe to activate.
