'11 Ellipse - two dangling wires

In my new to me '11 Ellipse QD I have two unidentified dangling wires.
They are located, inside looking out the windshield, just inside the right side (passenger side) windshield trim (vertical) and just below and right of the surround speaker and near the top corner of the entry door. Each of the two wires seem to have a small push button switch at the end.
Anyone have a clue? I pushed the buttons but I didn't experience an explosion or anything. Could it be part of the MDC front shade?
All help appreciated

Dont push them. They are to reprogram the 2 front shades. There is a specific way to do it

Oops! Well, I'll need to see what I've screwed up. I didn't find anything in the books.
Now that I know what they're for, I'll check to see what I need to do if anything since I pushed them.
I need to contact MCD anyway about a big-time rattle of a spring in the screen door night shade while driving. Drives me crazy,

Thank you for the link.
In operating them, it appears I didn't change anything when I pushed the buttons. Looking at the link, it's a bit more than just touching the buttons.
Soo thanks again for your instruction and insight.
Mystery solved.
