mitted speed for an engine that has been driven-in and has reached operating
temperature.
You should shift into the next highest gear before the red scale of the revolu-
tion counter is reached, or select mode D / S on the automatic gearbox.
The gear recommendation is important to note in order to maintain the opti-
mum engine speed

WARNING

For the vehicle systems to function correctly, and thus for safe driving,
there must be sufficient fuel in the tank. Never drain the fuel tank com-
pletely – risk of accident!

CAUTION

Never drive until the fuel tank is completely empty! Irregular supply of fuel can
cause misfiring, which can result in damage to parts of the engine and the ex-
haust system.

Note

After filling up, it can occur that during dynamic driving (e.g. numerous curves,
braking, driving downhill and climbing a steep hill) the fuel gauge indicates a
fraction less.

Lighting of the instrument cluster

Controller for instrument cluster
lighting

The brightness of the of the instrument cluster lighting can be adjusted indi-
vidually when the dipped beam / parking light is switched.

To Control of lighting brightness the regulator of the instrument cluster 
turn

Note

On vehicles with MAXI DOT display, the brightness of the instrument lighting is
set automatically. A instruction brightness adjustment can therefore only have a
limited effect.

Continued driving is possible with appropriate caution. Seek assistance from
a specialist garage immediately.

WARNING

If the warning light 

 lights up together with the warning light 

» page 32

 stop driving! Seek help from a specialist garage.

A fault to the ABS system or the braking system can increase the vehi-

cle's braking distance – risk of accident!

 Rear fog light

Read and observe   on page 31 first.

 lights up – the rear fog light is switched on.

 Lamp failure

Read and observe   on page 31 first.

light with a faulty bulb is switched on.

 Xenon headlights (AFS)

Read and observe   on page 31 first.

 flashes for 1 minute while driving or after the ignition is switched on - there

is a fault in the xenon headlights (AFS).
The MAXI DOT display shows the following.

Note

Using the system

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Emission control system

Read and observe   on page 31 first.

 lights up – there is a fault in the emission control system. The system

makes it possible to drive on in emergency mode - there may be a noticeable
reduction in engine performance.

Continued driving is possible with appropriate caution. Seek assistance from
a specialist garage immediately.

Preheating unit (diesel)

Read and observe   on page 31 first.

 The warning light comes on after the ignition has been switched on. Once

the light has gone out, the engine can be started immediately. There is a fault
in the glow plug system if the warning light 

 does not come on or illuminates

continuously.

Seek help from a specialist garage.

 flashes – there is a fault in the engine management system. The system

makes it possible to drive on in emergency mode - there may be a noticeable
reduction in engine performance.

Continued driving is possible with appropriate caution. Seek assistance from
a specialist garage immediately.

 Diesel particle filter (diesel)

Read and observe   on page 31 first.

The diesel particulate filter separates the soot particles from the exhaust. The
soot particles collect in the diesel particulate filter where they are burnt on a
regular basis.

 illuminates – the filter is clogged with soot.

To clean the filter, and where traffic conditions permit 

» 

, drive as follows for

at least 15 minutes or until the indicator light 

 goes out.

4. or 5. gear engaged (automatic gearbox:S position).
Vehicle speed at least 70 km/h.
Engine speed between 1800-2500 rpm.

If the filter is properly cleaned, the warning light 

 extinguishes.

If the filter is not properly cleaned, the warning light 

 does not go out and

the warning light 

 begins to flash.

Continued driving is possible with appropriate caution. Seek assistance from
a specialist garage immediately.

WARNING

Always adjust the speed and driving style to the actual weather, road, ter-

rain and traffic conditions.

The diesel particulate filter reaches very high temperatures - there is a

fire hazard and serious injury could be caused. Therefore, never stop the
vehicle at places where the underside of your vehicle can come into contact
with flammable materials, such as dry grass, undergrowth, leaves, spilled
fuel or the like.

CAUTION

As long as the warning light 

 illuminates, one must take into account an

increased fuel consumption and a power reduction of the engine.

Using diesel fuel with an increased sulphur content can considerably reduce

the life of the diesel particle filter. A ŠKODA partner will be able to tell you
which countries use diesel fuel with a high sulphur content.

Note

We encourage you to avoid constant short journeys. This will improve the com-
bustion process of the soot particles in the diesel particulate filter.

Disconnecting the vehicle battery
If the vehicle's battery has been disconnected and reconnected, the indicator
light 

 comes on after switching on the ignition.

The warning light should go out after driving a short distance.
If, after a short drive, the indicator light does not go out, there is a system er-
ror.

Continued driving is possible with appropriate caution. Seek assistance from
a specialist garage immediately.

Other incidents
The following reasons can explain the warning light 

 being illuminated.

The vehicle is loaded on one side. Distribute the load evenly.

The wheels of one axle are loaded more heavily (e.g. when towing a trailer or
when driving uphill or downhill).

Snow chains are mounted.

A wheel has been changed.

CAUTION

Under certain circumstances (e.g. sporty style of driving, wintry or unpaved
roads) the warning light 

 can be delayed or does not light up at all.
