Memory

Fig. 26 
Multi-function display - memory display

The system stores data from the two memories described below, which are
then displayed at position 

A

» Fig. 26

.

“1” - Single-trip memory
Drive data is stored from when the ignition is switched on to when it is switch-
ed off. If the trip is continued within 2 hours after switching off the ignition,
new data will also flow into the calculation of the current driving information.
If the trip is interrupted for more than 2 hours, the memory is automatically
erased.

“2” - Long-term memory
The memory saves data from any number of individual journeys up to a total of
19 hours and 59 minutes or 1999 kilometres driven (), and up to a total of
99 hours and 59 minutes or 9999 kilometres driven ().
The indicator is automatically set back to zero if one of the indicated values is
exceeded.

For the Storage choice, repeatedly confirm the selected indication and select
the desired memory.

For Deleting the memory for the selected information, hold down the button
confirming the specification.

The following driving data is stored in different memory banks.

Average fuel consumption.

Resetting the service interval display

We recommend that the display reset is completed by a specialist garage.

We recommend that you do not reset the service interval display yourself. In-
correctly setting the service interval display could cause problems to the vehi-
cle.

Variable service interval
For vehicles with variable service intervals, after resetting the oil change serv-
ice display in a specialist garage, the values of the new service interval are dis-
played, which are based on the previous operating conditions of the vehicle.
These values are then continuously matched according to the actual operating
conditions of the vehicle.

SmartGate

Introduction to the subject

Fig. 28 
QR code with reference to the
ŠKODA websites

SmartGate is a system that transmits certain driving data (such as fuel con-
sumption, speed or similar) via Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct.
The ŠKODA applications installed in a supported external device (e.g. phone,
tablet) give the option to further transmit the received data.
Some ŠKODA applications can be displayed in the Infotainment display by
means of a SmartLinkconnection

WARNING

Never leave the key in the vehicle when you exit the vehicle. Unauthor-

ised persons (e.g. children) could lock the car, turn on the ignition or start
the engine - There is risk of injury and accidents!

When leaving the vehicle, never leave people who are not completely in-

dependent, such as children, unattended in the vehicle. These individuals
might not be able to exit the vehicle by themselves or to help themselves.
Can be fatal at very high or very low temperatures!

CAUTION

Each key contains electronic components; therefore it must be protected

against moisture and severe shocks.

Keep the key grooves clean. Impurities (textile fibres, dust etc.) have a nega-

tive effect on the functionality of the locking cylinder and ignition lock.

Unlocking/locking - KESSY

Fig. 31  Vehicle unlocking / vehicle locking

Read and observe   and   on page 48 first.

The KESSY system (Keyless Entry Start Exit System) enables unlocking and
locking of the vehicle without actively using the remote control key.

Touch the sensor on the door handle with your finger to lock 

» Fig. 31

 -  the

vehicle.

When unlocking/locking the vehicle, the key must be at a maximum distance
of approximately 1.5 m from the front door handle.

Information on locking
On vehicles fitted with automatic gearbox, the selector lever must be moved
into the position P before unlocking.
The vehicle cannot be locked from the outside if the ignition has not been
turned off.
After locking the vehicle, it is not possible to unlock it within the next 2 sec-
onds by touching the door handle. This can be used to check whether the vehi-
cle is locked.

Protection against inadvertently locking the key in the vehicle
If one of the doors is closed after locking the vehicle and the key with which
the vehicle was locked remains in the passenger compartment, the vehicle is
automatically unlocked. After automatically unlocking, the turn signal lights
will flash four times. If no door is opened within 45 seconds, the vehicle is au-
tomatically locked again.

If the boot lid is closed after locking the vehicle and the key with which the
vehicle was locked remains in the luggage compartment, the lid is automatical-
ly unlatched (partially opened). After automatically unlocking, the turn signal
lights will flash four times. The boot lid remains unlatched (partially opened);
the other doors remain locked.

CAUTION

Some types of gloves can affect the unlocking or locking device via the sen-
sors in the door handle.

Locking is displayed in the button by the illumination of the 

 symbol.

To unlock, press the button in the area .

The following applies after locking.

Opening the doors and the boot lid from the outside is not possible.

The doors can be unlocked and opened from the inside by a single pull on the
opening lever of the respective door.

WARNING

Doors locked from the inside make it difficult for rescuers to get into the
vehicle in an emergency – risk to life!

Unlocking and opening

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

SafeLock

Read and observe   and   on page 48 first.

SafeLock prevents opening the doors from inside as well as window operation.
This makes an attempted break-in to the vehicle more difficult.

Activating
SafeLock is activated when the vehicle is locked from the outside.
This function is pointed out by the following message on the display of the in-
strument cluster after the ignition is switched off.

Check SAFELOCK! Log book!
CHECK DEADLOCK

Activation display
When SafeLock is activated, the warning light in the driver's door flashes for 2
seconds in rapid succession, then starts to flash at longer intervals.

Deactivating

By locking twice within 2 seconds.

or: by deactivating the interior monitor and the towing protection

» page 52

.

The warning light in the driver door flashes rapidly for about 2 seconds, then
goes out and starts to flash at longer intervals after about 30 seconds.
If the vehicle is locked and the safe securing system is switched off, the door
can be opened separately from the inside by a single pull on opening lever.
The Safelock system switches back on when the vehicle is locked.

WARNING

If the car is locked and the safe securing system activated, no people must
remain in the car as it will then not be possible to either unlock a door or
open a window from the inside. The locked doors make it more difficult for
rescuers to get into the vehicle in an emergency – risk to life!

Individual settings

Read and observe   and   on page 48 first.

The following central locking functions can be individually set via the MAXI
DOT display 

» page 43

Menu item Settings.

All doors
The function allows you to unlock all doors, the boot lid and the fuel filler flap.

Single door
The function allows you to unlock only the driver's door and the fuel filler flap
with the radio remote control. KESSY allows the unlocking of a single door
which is in the vicinity of the key, as well as the fuel filler flap. The other doors
and the boot lid are only unlocked once the door handle is unlocked or
touched.

Doors on a vehicle side
This function enables you to unlock both doors on the driver's side and the
fuel filler flap with the radio remote control unit. KESSY allows the unlocking of
both doors which are in the vicinity of the key, as well as the fuel filler flap. The
other doors and the boot lid are only unlocked once the door handle is un-
locked or touched.

Automatic locking/unlocking
This function enables the locking of all doors and the boot lid from a speed of
15 km / h. Opening the doors and the boot lid from the outside is not possible.
The renewed unlocking of the doors and the boot lid is carried out when the
ignition key is removed or when the door is opened from inside (depending on
the individual setting for the central locking system).
