This is answered in the Durametric FAQ
http://www.durametric.com/faq.aspx

Question: Can the software enable the on board computer (OBC)?
Answer: Not at this time.

No it won't. Yu may be able to get a dealer to do it by just asking for the outside temp to be displayed. This activates the OBC. Most dealers will do this as a courtesy, or a small charge.
