Re: Disable keyless entry permanently,

Just deactivated my passive entry/exit on my drivers and passenger doors on my Seat Ateca Xellence 2.0 TDI Alldrive using VCDS. Did you do this because you are afraid of car thieves using some radio relay system to steal your car? If so, you forgot the boot lid. It can be opened without opening the...

Re: Window Problem

Thanks, but sadly doesn't work. Try releasing the button in between. Press down until it's fully open, release the button, then press down again and hold for awhile. Then do the same for the upper end. If you just press until at the end and hold, it won't reset, you have to release the button in be...

Does anyone have this issue? Sometimes the keyless unlock or lock doesn't work, sometimes it does??? Maybe its just me!
And you are using it correctly? Keeping your hand away from the handle, when locking, and your thumb away from the locking sensor when opening?

Re: Water Under Rear of Car

Burning one gallon of petrol produces more than one gallon of water. Usually it exits the exhaust system in vapor form, but can condensate under right circumstances.

Re: android auto not working

Now that I think of it, about a month ago I had some problems with it too. The old version stopped working, but the new one didn't work either. I managed to get it to work by downloading a bit older version of Google Play Services from APK Mirror too. I'm quite sure this was the first time I had to ...

Re: android auto not working

Do you get AA from Google Play in Denmark, or do you have to download it from APK Mirror etc. like we do here in Finland? If you install it manually from APK Mirror, it will not update automatically. Sometimes, when the Google Play Services is updated, the AA stops working for me. I have to download...

Re: 1.5 petrol dsg + Climate control?

In VW group cars, you cannot turn the aircon off completely. There is a switch to turn it off, but it does not disconnect the compressor. VW group uses variable discharge compressors, which don't have magnetic clutch at all. Instead, the piston stroke length is varied, so it only does as much work a...

Re: SEAT ATECA 2019 model Auto Handbrake Failure

Please test this for yourself, but it's my understanding that if you allow the EPB to release automatically, then it will re-apply automatically. Where you'll defeat the system is if you release the EPB manually - then it won't reapply itself, unless auto hold is on. Doesn't work that way on my car...

Re: Bad audio quality on Android Auto

Combine the poorer audio quality with having to plug it in to a USB, a less than useful Google Assistant (it's limited on AA) and a locked up phone (when at a red light) I am pretty disappointed with it. You can unlock the phone when the car is at a standstill. Just swipe up (or down, I cannot reme...

Re: Check oil level

Oil level warning gets cleared, when you open the bonnet. There is a microswitch that detects that the bonnet is open, and it clears the warning. The measurement for oil level is very slow, takes tens of miles to measure the level correctly. That's why the bonnet switch clears the code, the assuptio...
