Skoda Yeti (2017 year). Instruction - part 7

 

 

A warning signal sounds if the vehicle is inadvertently driven off with the
handbrake applied. The handbrake warning is activated if the vehicle is driven
at a speed of over 5 km/h for more than 3 seconds.

WARNING

Disengage the handbrake completely. A handbrake which is only partially
disengaged can result in the rear brakes overheating. This can have a nega-
tive effect on the operation of the brake system – risk of accident!

Note

Push the armrest cover all the way back to the stop before applying the hand-
brake

Starting-off and Driving

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

CAUTION

If not in the process of changing gear, do not leave your hand on the gearshift
lever while driving. The pressure from the hand can cause the gearshift mech-
anism to wear excessively.

Pedals

The operation of the pedals must not be hindered under any circumstances!
Only a floor mat (ex-factory or from the ŠKODA Original Accessories range)
which can be secured to the attachment points should be used in the driver's
footwell.

WARNING

There should be no objects in the driver's footwell, otherwise the pedal op-
eration can be impeded -There is a risk of an accident!

Starting-off and driving

108

The automatic transmission performs an automatic gear change irrespective of
the engine load, the operation of the accelerator, the vehicle speed and the
selected driving mode.
The modes of the automatic transmission can be adjusted by the driver by
means of the selector lever.

WARNING

Do not accelerate when selecting drive mode prior to moving off - There

is a risk of an accident!

Never move the selector lever to mode R or P when driving – There is a

risk of an accident!

WARNING (Continued)

If the vehicle stalls, with engine running, in the DSR or Tiptronic mode,

the vehicle must be prevented from rolling away by means of the brake
pedal or the parking brake. Even when the engine is idling, the power
transmission is never completely interrupted – the vehicle creeps.

When leaving the vehicle, the selector lever must always be set to P. Oth-

erwise, the vehicle could be set in motion - risk of accident!

CAUTION

If you want to move the selector lever from position N to position D / S whilst
driving, the engine must be running at idling speed.

Selector lever lock

Fig. 128 
Shift lock button

Read and observe   and   on page 106 first.

The selector lever is locked in mode P and N to prevent that the forward driv-
ing is selected accidentally, thereby setting the vehicle in motion.
The selector lever is locked only when the vehicle is stationary and at speeds
up to 5 km/h.
The selector lever lock is indicated by the illumination of the warning light 

.

Releasing selector lever from mode P or N (selector lever lock)

Press the brake pedal and the lock button at the same time in the direction
of

» Fig. 128

 .

To move the selector lever from mode N to D only the brake pedal must be
pressed.

The selector lever is not locked when quickly moving across the position N
(e.g. from R to D). This, for example, helps to rock out a vehicle that is stuck,
e.g. in a bank of snow. The selector lever lock will engage if the lever is in posi-
tion N for more than approx. 2 seconds without the brake pedal being de-
pressed.
If it is not possible to release the gear selector from mode P in the usual man-
ner, then this can be emergency unlocked

Note

To switch the selector lever from mode P to mode D/S or vice versa, move the
selector lever quickly. This prevents that you accidentally select mode R or N.

Instruction shifting (Tiptronic)

Fig. 129 
Selector lever

Read and observe   and   on page 106 first.

Tiptronic mode makes it possible to instructionly shift gears on the selector lever.
This mode can be selected both while stopping and while driving.

Switching to instruction shifting using the selector lever

Push the gear selector from position D towards the right, or left in a right-
hand drive vehicle. The current gear is maintained.

Gear changing

To change up, tap the selector lever forwards 

+

 

» Fig. 129

.

To change down, tap the selector lever backwards 

-

» Fig. 129

.

The currently selected gear is indicated in the display 

» Fig. 127

 on page 106.

The gearshift indicator should be observed when changing gear 

» page 39

.

When accelerating, the gearbox automatically shifts up into the higher gear
just before the maximum permissible engine speed is reached. If a lower gear
is selected, the gearbox does not shift down until there is no risk of the engine
overrevving.

Note

It may be beneficial, for example, when travelling downhill, to use instruction
shifting of gears. Shifting to a lower gear reduces the load on the brakes and
hence the wear of the brakes.

Tips on economical driving

108

Running in the engine

During the first 1 500 km, the driving style is decisive for successful the run-
ning in process is.
During the first 1 000 km, the engine should not be charged with more than
3/4 of the maximum permitted engine revs and without the trailer.
From about 1 000 to 1 500 km, the engine can be pushed up to the maximum
permitted engine speed.

Tips on economical driving

Fuel consumption depends on the driving style, road and weather conditions,
and similar such factors.
For an economical driving style, the following instructions must be observed.

Avoid unnecessary acceleration and braking.

Engage the recommended gear 

» page 39

.

Avoid full throttle and high speeds.

Reduce idling.

Avoid short distances.

Ensure the correct tyre inflation pressure is maintained 

» page 151

.

Avoid unnecessary ballast.

Remove the roof rack before driving if it is not needed.

Only turn on electrical consumers (e.g. seat heating) for as long as necessary.

Briefly ventilate before turning on the cooling system, do not use the cooling
system with the windows open.

Do not leave windows open at high speeds.

Avoiding damage to your vehicle

Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:
Driving Tips

109

Driving through water

109

Driving Tips

Only drive on roads and terrain that are appropriate to the vehicle parameters

» page 175

Technical data.

The driver is always responsible for deciding whether the vehicle can cope
with the conditions and the terrain.
When travelling off paved roads, we recommend activating the OFF ROAD
mode 

» page 112

.

WARNING

Adjust the speed and driving style to the current visibility, weather, road

and traffic conditions. Too high a speed or an erroneous manoeuvre may
cause serious injury and damage to the vehicle.

Combustible objects such as dry leaves or twigs caught under the base of

the vehicle could ignite on hot vehicle parts - risk of fire!

CAUTION

Pay attention to the ground clearance of the vehicle! When driving over ob-

jects which are larger than the ground clearance, the vehicle can get damaged.

Any objects that get trapped under the vehicle floor must be removed as

soon as possible. These items can cause damage to the vehicle (e.g. to parts of
the fuel or brake system).

Driving through water

Fig. 130 
Maximum permissible water lev-
el when driving through water

The following must be observed to avoid damage to the vehicle when driving
through bodies of water (e.g. flooded roads).

Therefore determine the depth of the water before driving through bodies of
water. The water level must not go above the web of the lower beam

» Fig. 130

.

Drive at no more than walking pace, otherwise a wave may form in front of
the vehicle, which could cause the water to enter into the vehicle’s systems
(e.g. the air intake system for the engine).

Never stop in the water, do not reverse and do not switch the engine off.

CAUTION

If water gets into the vehicle’s systems (e.g. the air intake system for the en-

gine) it can cause serious damage to the vehicle!

Oncoming vehicles can generate water waves which can exceed the permis-

sible water level for your vehicle.

Do not drive through salt water, as the salt can cause corrosion. An vehicle

coming into contact with salt water is to be thoroughly rinsed with fresh wa-
ter.

Assist systems

General information

WARNING

The assistance systems only serve to support and do not relieve the driv-

er of the responsibility for driving the vehicle.

The increased safety provision, as well as the increased occupant protec-

tion provided by the assistance systems must not tempt you to take risks -
risk of accident!

Adjust the speed and driving style to the current visibility, weather, road

and traffic conditions.

The assistance systems have physical and system-related limitations. For

this reason, the driver may experience some undesired or delayed system
responses in certain situations. You should therefore always be alert and
ready to intervene!

Only activate, deactivate or set the assistance systems so that you have

the car fully under control in every traffic situation - risk of accident!

Braking and stabilisation systems

Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:
Stability Control (ESC)

110

Anti-lock braking system (ABS)

110

Engine drag torque control (MSR)

110

Traction control (TCS)

111

Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)

111

Driver Steering Recommendation (DSR)

111

Brake Assist (HBA)

111

Hill Start Assist (HHC)

111

Trailer stabilization system (TSA)

112

The brake and stabilization systems are automatically activated each time the
ignition is switched on, unless otherwise indicated.
The error display is in Chapter 

» page 31

Warning lights.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must be
observed 

» page 110,

   in section General information.

Stability Control (ESC)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

The ESC improves vehicle stability when driving at the limit (e.g. if the vehicle
starts to skid) by braking individual wheels to maintain the desired direction.
If there is a TCS intervention, the warning light 

 flashes in the instrument

cluster.

Anti-lock braking system (ABS)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

ABS prevents the wheels locking when braking. Thus helping the driver to
maintain control of the vehicle.
The intervention of the ABS is noticeable from the pulsating movements of
the brake pedal
 which is accompanied by noises.
When the ABS system is active, do not brake periodically or reduce the pres-
sure on the brake pedal.

Engine drag torque control (MSR)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

MSR counteracts the tendency of the drive wheels to lock during downshifts
or sudden deceleration (e.g. on icy or an otherwise slippery road surface).
If the drive wheels should lock, then the engine speed is automatically in-
creased. This reduces the braking effect of the engine and the wheels can ro-
tate freely again.

110

Driving

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

Traction control (TCS)

Fig. 131  System button: Vehicle with ESC / vehicle without ESC

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

TCS prevents the spinning of the wheels of the driven axle. TCS reduces the
drive power transmitted to the wheels in the case of slipping wheels. Thus, for
example, driving on road surfaces with low grip is made easier.
During a TCS intervention, the indicator light 

 flashes in the instrument clus-

ter.
The deactivation/activation of TCS can be carried out, depending on equip-
ment, in one of the following ways.

By pressing the  

» Fig. 131

 button.

By pressing the  

» Fig. 131

 button.

With deactivation, the warning light 

lights up in the instrument cluster and

an appropriate message is displayed in the instrument cluster.
With activation, the warning light 

 is extinguished and an appropriate mes-

sage is displayed in the instrument cluster.
The TCS should normally always be enabled. The system should be deactivated
only in the following situations, for example.

When driving with snow chains.

When driving in deep snow or on a very loose surface.

When it is necessary to “rock” a car free when it has become stuck.

Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

EDL prevents the turning of the respective wheel of the driven axle. EDL
brakes a spinning wheel if required and transfers the drive power force to the
other drive wheel. Driving becomes easier on road surfaces with different trac-
tion under each wheel of the driven axle.
EDL switches off automatically to avoid excessive heat generation on the
brake of the wheel being braked. Once the brakes have cooled down, there is
an automatic re-activation of EDL.

Driver Steering Recommendation (DSR)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

In critical situations, the DSR provides the driver with a steering recommenda-
tion in order to stabilise the vehicle. DSR is activated, for example, on the right
and left vehicle side when braking sharply on different road surfaces.

Brake Assist (HBA)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

The HBA increases the braking effect and helps to reduce the braking dis-
tance.
The HBA is activated by very quick operation of the brake pedal. In order to
achieve the shortest possible braking distance, the brake pedal must be ap-
plied firmly until the vehicle has come to a standstill.
The HBA function is automatically deactivated when the brake pedal is re-
leased.

Hill Start Assist (HHC)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

When moving off on a gradient, HHC allows you to move your foot from the
brake pedal to the accelerator pedal without the vehicle rolling downhill.
The vehicle is braked by the system for about 2 seconds after releasing the
brake pedal.

111

Assist systems

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

The HHC is active on gradients upwards up 5% if the driver door is closed. HHC
is only ever active on slopes when in forward or reverse start off.

Trailer stabilization system (TSA)

Read and observe   on page 110 first.

The TSA helps the combination stable in situations where the trailer sways
and then the whole trailer combination.
TSA brakes the individual wheels of the towing vehicle in order to damp the
rocking motion of the entire vehicle combination.
The following conditions are required for the correct TSA function.

The trailer was shipped from the factory or purchased from the ŠKODA
genuine accessories.
The trailer is electrically connected to the towing vehicle via the trailer
socket.
The TCS is activated.
The speed is greater than 60 km/h.

But even with OFF ROAD mode activated, your vehicle is never a true SUV.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must

be observed 

» page 110,

   in section General information.

A lack of fuel can cause irregular engine running or cause the engine to

shut down. This would lead the OFF ROAD mode to lose its effectiveness -
risk of accident!

CAUTION

The OFF ROAD mode is not designed for the use on common roads.

All four wheels must be fitted with the same tyres approved by the

ŠKODA AUTO to ensure theOFF ROAD mode operates correctly.

Hill Descent Assistant

Read and observe   and   on page 112 first.

The hill descent assistant (hereinafter referred to as assistant), with its auto-
matic braking action on all wheels, ensures a constant speed is maintained on
a steep slope when driving forwards and reversing.
During an intervention of the Assistants, the warning light 

 flashes in the in-

strument cluster.
The assistant is automatically engaged under the following conditions.

The engine is running.
For vehicles with Instruction transmission the shift lever is in the neutral po-
sition and or the 1st, 2nd, 3rd gear, or reverse gear is engaged.
On vehicles with an automatic transmission, the selector lever is in the R,
N, D, S position or in the Tiptronic position.
The downhill gradient is at least 10 % (when driving over sleepers, the lim-
it can briefly drop to 8 %).
Neither the accelerator nor the brake pedal is operated.

Driving speed
Initiate the downhill decent at a reasonable speed up to 30 km / h the hill de-
scent assist maintains this speed when driving downhill constant.
The assistant can maintain constant speed of about 2 - 30 km / h.
If a forwards or reverse gear is engaged for vehicles with Instruction transmis-
sion
, the speed must be high enough to avoid stalling the engine.

By pressing the accelerator or brake pedal, the speed can be increased or re-
duced. This is true even if the shift lever is in the neutral position and the se-
lector lever in the N position. The engagement of the assistant is resumed af-
ter the pedal is released.

WARNING

For the correct operation of the assistant the road surface must be suffi-
ciently adherent. The assistant cannot properly fulfil its function on slushy
soil due to physical reasons (e.g. ice or mud). - there is a risk of an accident!

Note

During an active intervention of the assistant, the brake lights do not light up.

TCSOFF ROAD

Read and observe   and   on page 112 first.

The ASR OFF ROAD makes starting and driving on an unpaved surface easier
as it partially allows wheel-spin.

Note

When disabled, the TCS 

» page 111

 OFF ROAD mode works without the support

of the TCS OFF ROAD.

EDS OFF ROAD

Read and observe   and   on page 112 first.

The EDS supports OFF ROAD vehicle traction when driving on a surface with
different grip under the drive wheels or when driving over bumps.
A spinning wheel or wheels are braked earlier and with more force than with
the intervention of the standard EDS system.

ABS OFF ROAD

Read and observe   and   on page 112 first.

The ABS OFF ROAD supports the driver when braking on an unpaved surface
such as gravel, snow, etc.
The system generated by a controlled locking of the wheels braked wheel be-
fore a “wedge” of piled material, which shortens the braking distance.

113

Assist systems

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

The system is only available, if the front wheels are in the straight-ahead posi-
tion.
The system operates at speeds of up to 50 km/h.

Start-Off Assistant 

1)

Read and observe   and   on page 112 first.

The Start-Off assistant assists the driver when setting off, such as on a steep
slope or on a slippery surface. When the driver presses the accelerator, the
maximum engine speed is electronically limited so that a gentle approach is
possible.

CAUTION

The camera image is distorted by contrast with eyesight. The display is

therefore only of limited use for estimating distances to following vehicles.

Some items, such as thin columns, chain link fences or lattice, may not be

represented adequately in terms of display resolution.

In a crash or damage the vehicle's rear camera can possibly deviate from the

correct position. If this is the case, have the sensor checked by a specialist ga-
rage.

Park Assist (hereinafter referred to as system) helps drivers park in suitable
parallel and perpendicular parking places or also to manoeuvre out of parallel
parking spaces.
The system takes over the steering movements only when parking or leaving a
parking space. The driver operates the brake, accelerator or clutch pedal and
the shift / selector lever.
The state in which the steering wheel is operated by the system, is referred to
as parking operation.
The Park Assist is an extension of the parking aid 

» page 114

 and operates on

the basis of data collected by the ultrasonic sensors.
For this reason, the chapter on the parking aid is to be read carefully and the
safety notes are to be observed.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must

be observed 

» page 110,

   in section General information.

During the parking process, the system automatically performs rapid

steering movements. While it is doing so, do not place your hands between
the steering wheel – risk of injury!

During a parking manoeuvre on loose or slippery surfaces (gravel, snow,

ice, etc.) you may stray from the calculated road. It is therefore recommen-
ded that you do not use the system in such situations.

CAUTION

The correct evaluation of the parking space and the parking procedure de-
pends on the circumference of the wheels on the vehicle.

The system only works correctly if the vehicle is fitted with the wheel size

approved by ŠKODA AUTO.

Abstain from using the system when the vehicle is fitted with snow chains or

a temporary spare wheel.

If wheels other than those approved by ŠKODA AUTO are fitted, the resulting

position of the vehicle in the parking space can differ slightly. This can be avoi-
ded by readjusting the system at a specialist garage.

CAUTION

If other vehicles are parked behind or on the curb, the system can drive your
vehicle over the kerb or up to the kerb - there is a risk of damage to the
wheels. If necessary, intervene in good time.

Note

We recommend performing the parking at a safe speed to about 5 km/h.

The parking procedure can be stopped at any time by pressing the 

» Fig. 139

 on page 119 button or by a steering intervention.

Functioning

Read and observe   and   on page 118 first.
