Re: Aircon Temperature - make it colder

Thanks, my dealer said it was working to specification. But of course they would say that wouldn't they :-)

Re: Aircon Temperature - make it colder

Using a food thermometer inserted into the front air vent, my Karoq's aircon gets down to 8.3 degrees whereas my friend's Fabia gets down to 3 so definitely cooler on his 1.0 than on my 1.5. Very disappointing on a hot day, especially for a top spec car.

Re: Aircon Temperature - make it colder

My local Skoda dealer offered to do this for me today and then said that that their VAG-COM software was not up to date so they couldn't do it! So I'm still in need of someone helping me out with this so I can get the cabin cold enough when it gets sunny again. Any offers please PM me. Thanks!

Re: Aircon Temperature - make it colder

I don't use the Eco mode nor do I use the Auto Climatronic mode. I only use Manual controls. But I have set the Automatic mode to Intensive. I know it can be made colder in the software because a lot of people have done this, but I don't have the software or the confidence to do it myself.

Re: Aircon Temperature - make it colder

I hate to ask the obvious........ but I assume you HAVE pressed the A/C button with the temp set to LO and the fan speed at least halfway?

Aircon Temperature - make it colder

I'm finding that on hot days the aircon is not as cold as on my previous Fabia. Many owners have improved this in the software but I don't have the kit or the know-how. Has anyone here done this mod and is it effective? If there is anyone here in the West Midlands area that could do this for me on m...

Canton Sound - harsh and overbright

I have the Canton sound system but the speakers sound harsh and overbright with slight distortion on strings and vocals. Anyone else notice this? I emailed Canton but they were useless and said it's a Skoda issue. My Skoda dealer says they've never heard of this problem. Has anyone with this Canton ...

Re: VAG COM Software - advice please

I had it on the Fabia and, because the Karoq engine is so damn quiet I'd like to see a visual confirmation that the Karoq has started.

Re: PCP or Cash?

I also got a good discount from the dealer but they said if I took out the PCP deal I could canel it shortly thereafter and get the first two services free.
