Re: Park brake recall

I know some people think these autohold and electric handbrake systems are great but to me they seem like the answer to a problem that never existed. Well, it depends on what your problem is. The only problem I've ever had with a handbrake, was water ingress inside the Bowden cable and subsequent f...

Re: What do you do when the key battery goes flat? - Here's what to do...

There has been some discussion about this phenomenon (KESSY battery going flat without warning) in one car forum here in Finland. People found out, that it actually gives a warning, but only if you press the open key on the fob. I have not tested this, but it's worth to try. Open the doors with KESS...

Anyway, the asking price is £46,800
Is that a new car? If so, then that sounds like a bargain. Here in Finland, Ateca Cupra pricelist starts from €61,498 (that's £55,313 at current rate). :D :) :| :( :cry:

Re: Rain- sensing automatic wipers

The setting for rear wiper is different, it says wipe when reversing or something to this effect. My rear wiper does NOT work automatically UNLESS I am in reverse while front wipers are triggered by the sensor. I can also confirm that my front wipers work with the stalk in the off position because ...

Re: Traffic Sign Recognition

You only get it on the DSG models. For some reason they say it is not compatible with rear cross traffic alert on manuals. If the car has Lane Assist or Traffic Sign Recognition, but not both, I think the other one can be activated with proper procedure. After all, they are both just software which...

Re: Rain- sensing automatic wipers

Not sure about you guys but on my car INT is INT, has nothing to do with autowipers. Autowipers are activated through CAR/SETUP on the infotainment system. I believe it's under mirror and wipers and you need to check the box. Once activated, it works regardless of the stalk position. The marking on...

Re: Traffic Sign Recognition

Is there anyway of activating traffic recognition signs and or lane recognition with VCDS as i believe it uses the front camera behind the badge. I maybe completely wrong in my assumption but its worth a punt. There is no camera behind the badge, that's microwave radar sensor which is used by the F...

Re: Ateca Key just stopped Working

With DSG the engine will not start unless the brake pedal is depressed. That could be the reason. On a manual car it will not start without the clutch being deprassed. Presumably this also apples to the emergency start procedure. That's probably it. But I'm used to press the brake pedal first, then...

Re: Ateca Key just stopped Working

I would be interested if you know for a fact that this is true - my dealer didn't know this and I tried holding the damn key at various places (including where you say) to no avail. Would like to hear from someone who has actually done this successfully... I had to use this procedure last winter, w...

Re: Ateca Key just stopped Working

The car was asking for the key to be placed against the KESSY button, but this didn't do anything. Actually, the sensor is NOT on the start button. It's inside the steering column, in the same place where a lock cylinder would be in a car without KESSY. That's where you supposed to place the key, i...
