Do you get any messages between the Rev counter and speedo, I haven't had that problem but once I used the keyfob and then I had to reset in the touchscreen because it didn't unlock all the doors when I opened the drivers door.

Fear not! I expect you do what others (including myself) have done.
DO NOT........ put your fingers INSIDE the handle when touching the lock pad. If you do this confuses the car . Mine nearly had a nervous breakdown.
It was clicking furiously.
I could almost image the car saying "Come on, make you flipping mind up..what do you want ..lock or unlock?????"

Rather than using your thumb to lock it (if you do ) try using your middle finger to lock it, that should remind you NOT to put your fingers INSIDE the handle.
If I'm wrong let me know.

Problem sorted....user error.
Seems I was touching more of the handle than just the sensor which is much more sensitive than the keyless lock on my previous car (Qashqai). 😊 Thankyou Kodiak!

A new member here. (Should have been driving round in my new Karoq but dealer having a problem getting the electric operated tow bar to connect to the ECU.)

One problem with KESSY might be if the key is put in a bag with RFID prevention. (Or if you have put your key in your metal sandwich box). If the bag is then left in the car and you lock the car in the usual way by touching the driver's door handle. Hopefully the car will sense that you don't have the key on you. Has anyone tried this? You should be OK if you have ready access to the second key. I'd be very interested to know as I use RFID prevention extensively and have been known to lock my bag in the car....

I have just purchased an 1.5 TSI SEL and am slowly discovering its features.

One thing threw me completely. The Kessy system works as expected on the drivers door, it will unlock, lock and can be turned off by touching during the locking sequence. The boot lid however always appeared to be unlocked. After locking with the remote fob all doors locked as expected, mirrors folded in etc. but if I tried the boot it always opened without any input from the remote fob. It took me a while to realise that provided the remote keypad was in my pocket the boot-lid could always be opened even after apparently being locked. Placing the remote key at a distance cured the problem So does Kessy also work on the boot lid lock? I could not see anything about it in the manual. Selecting "one door" or " all Doors" in the "Car" menu did not seem to have any effect.

As I understand it, this is a common feature on VAG cars - meaning you can open the boot without unlocking the whole car. You can unlock with the 'handle' on the boot if the keys are close enough, or open by pressing the key fob button. Once the boot is closed again, it does lock (normally the indicators will flash I think). Without the keys in proximity, the boot will not be able to be opened. Hope this helps...

Thanks Mikaroq,
As the key fob cannot be locked in the boot ( the boot lid remains unlatched) I assume that having the fob close to the boot will have the same effect. These new fangled features take a bit of getting used to after my 6 year old Octavia.

If you have the key in your pocket you can open and close the boot and it will relock. If yre key is in a bag you can open the boot, put the bag inside and when you close the boot it will not lock (thankfully, I have done this a couple of times by accident). Likewise, if you leave the key in the little recess in the centre console when you get out, you cannot lock the car.

I dread the day it goes wrong...

Have fun,
