Re: Karoq 1.5 Auto. Temp gauge

.. When the car temp drops, to 0, the car judders and misfires a little , then a bit of black smoke out back , then when warm to 90 all is ok... Fuel consumption has gone from average 44 to 32 ..... Sounds like a sensor is either faulty or getting false triggers - black smoke and misfiring indicate...

Re: Newbie

Spend your Sunday (with manual in hand) playing with all your info systems including the plethora of settings in the infotainment screen. Or better still download the full version off the Skoda website to your mobile (or laptop/tablet if you can access t'internet with them from inside the car), as ...

Re: Crunching gearbox

You may be able to try rejecting the car at up to 6 months old - seems Skoda accept the gearbox was faulty from new and hence willing to replace it. My view would be to let them replace the gearbox assuming all your other niggles have been sorted. If the gearbox is your only remaining issue then pre...

Re: Auto locking doors

I’m in the process of buying a new Karol. I have one cocern about the door locks. Do they lock automatically and if so can you program them not to. On our MY21 Karoq Edition, the default setting for the autolock function (doors lock themselves when the car reaches 15km/hr) was off. We had to activa...

Re: SOS Error: Emergency Call Workshop!

Assuming yours is a MY21 model, it has a built in mobile phone SIM (eSIM) which the car connects to the world through. I don't know which network they are set up on (possibly Vodaphone's), but one possible cause would be a problem with the eSIM - if the SOS light comes and goes it is indicating ther...

Re: Order Times

Our order was received at the factory on 28 Sep and the car arrived at the dealers on 5 Nov. The dealer sent us a weekly update as the build/delivery progressed through the system - yours should do likewise.

Re: Floor Door Light

Definitely one for the dealer to sort - need access behind door card to correct. This thread from another forum goes through what is needed, and its not something I'd want to tackle, even though I'd like to replace the cheap red reflectors in my doors with red lights. https://www.briskoda.net/forums...

Re: Assigning keys to profiles

You need to set up a User Account for whoever will be the main user of the car - this can either be done via the Infotainment if it supports this (if yours is brand new factory build with the Columbus version then it will - did on ours) or otherwise through Skoda Connect Portal website. Once you hav...
