Re: AdBlue

To reset ad blue warning ignition must be turned on for 30 secs without starting engine. Just done mine. Reset no problem. Also won’t reset unless minimum amount added - mine took over 12 litres.

Re: 1.6 TDI

I have had my 1.6 TDI since 1 Nov 18 and delighted with it. No it is not quick. Yes it is smooth and quiet. I am retired and hence never in a hurry to get anywhere but this engine suits me fine. Average mpg over 2000mls so far is 55mpg. Motorway cruising is effortless and quiet. It is slightly under...

Re: Auto stop start delay please!

My last two cars also had this pointless system. My routine for some years is now start car and immediately turn stop/start off. Becomes an easy habit after a while !

Re: Karoq Connectivity?

My experience of connect using iPhone not positive. Takes ages to connect using iPhone hotspot which will not stay connected and needs to be manually re connected every time. Once connected downloads are painfully slow and, in my opinion what you get as a result is simply not worth the bother. If yo...

Re: Juddery wiper

Stevieboy correct. Mine also juddery front and back when new. Deep clean screens and problem solved. Wipers now good. Also did inside as covered in some sort of residue and this makes huge difference to vision. Should have been done during PDI !!

Re: Boot light/torch

Just experienced same problem but easy sorted
Immediately above boot light is a removable panel - its about 6in by 3 in. You need to use a table knife to tease out the panel which then gives easy access to rear of the boot light holder which can then be clipped back into place.

Auxiliary Heater causing high idle speed.

Having solved my problem via another topic thought I would share solution. During cold weather i.e. 5c or under the Auxillary Heater ( 1.6 TDI SEL ) automatically kicks in and as a result causes idle rpm to increase to constant 1000rpm preventing battery drain. Solution is turn this off via the heat...

Re: High idle when cold.

Brilliant update by Andren -thank you so much .
Turned off auxiliary heater from air con menu and hey presto all is well. No fast idle and car seems to run much better from cold. Idle is now 750rpm irrespective of what else is turned on.

Re: High idle when cold.

Agreed - I've had many diesels last one being a Sportage and non behaved this way however it's clear the Karoq is designed to do this in cold weather. MPG will always suffer in cold weather as optimum only achieved when engine hot and always takes longer in cold so expect 5-10% drop during winter. H...

Re: High idle when cold.

I have exactly same on my 1.6TDI SEL - Have experimented and can tell you following. From stone cold any form of heating manual or auto will result in 1000rpm idle. Turn everything off and idle is 750rpm. Heated seat on and nothing else idle is 750rpm. Heater on idle is 1000 - turn it off and immedi...
