I thought you ordered your car from new? If you've never run it it prolly won't work now anyway. These type heat your coolant to around 60 degs so it's all warm before you start the engine. I think you should of had an extra key fob type thing that controlled it.
Also possible to get a timer unit from Webasto and a 7 day programmable type too i think

IIRC most if not all D3 tdi's had an auxilary heater - meaning it runs together with engine to aid warming the coolant quicker - you can convert to parking heater by adding receiver and remote control + some coding required probably.
