- When the process is complete, there will be no visual/audible indication, take the key out of ignition
Found and confirmed by another user with the MY12 2.0i. Below is the quote from the relevant post in the thread:

Took me 3 tries & on the 3rd I had my door open while doing the procedure but I'm not sure that had any bearing on it. If you ever get your ECU reset or change your battery you'll have to do it again.
I presume the MY13 operates in the same manner (see rationale in my previous post re: a/c disable for defrost vent setting).
