Skoda Fabia (2019 year). Instruction - part 11

 

 

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. 202 

Maximum permissible water lev-

el when driving through water

The following instructions must be observed if vehicle damage is to be avoided

when driving through water (e.g. flooded roads).

Therefore, always determine the depth of the water before driving through

water. The water level must not go above the web of the lower beam

» Fig. 202

.

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. A vehicle

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

ter.

Assist systems

General information

Introduction

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 enable, disable or set the assistance systems so that you have the

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

Radar sensor

Fig. 203 

Installation location of the radar

sensor

Read and observe   on page 172 first.

The radar sensor (hereinafter on referred to as sensor) uses electromagnetic

waves to capture the traffic situation ahead of the vehicle 

» Fig. 203

.

The sensor is part of the ACC

 and Front Assist

» page 190

systems.

172

Driving

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

The sensor function may be impaired in the events of one of the following.

The sensor cover is soiled (e.g. with mud, snow etc.).

The area in front of and around the sensor cover is obscured (e.g. by labels,

auxiliary headlights etc.).

When visibility is poor, (e.g. fog, heavy rain, thick snowfall).

If the sensor is covered or dirty, the corresponding message appears in the in-

strument cluster display for the ACC system

Malfunctions.

WARNING

If you suspect that the sensor is damaged, deactivate the ACC system

and Front Assist system

» page 187

» page 192

. Have the sensor checked

by a specialist garage.

A collision or damage in the front or lower area of the vehicle could affect

the sensor function - there is risk of accident! Have the sensor checked by

a specialist garage.

Do not cover the area in front of and around the sensor cover. This can

lead to impaired function of the sensor - risk of accidents!

CAUTION

Remove the snow with a brush and the ice with a solvent-free de-icer.

Braking and stabilisation systems

Introduction

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 37

Warning lights.

WARNING

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

observed 

» page 172,

   in section Introduction.

Stability Control (ESC)

Read and observe   on page 173 first.

ESC improves vehicle stability in critical driving situations (e.g. if the vehicle

starts to skid) by the braking the individual wheels to maintain the direction.
If there is a TCS intervention, the indicator light

 flashes in the instrument

cluster.

Anti-lock brake system (ABS)

Read and observe   on page 173 first.

ABS prevents the wheels locking when braking. Thereby, it helps the driver to

maintain control of the vehicle.
An ABS intervention can be noticed through pulsating movements of the

brake pedal and distinct noises.
When the ABS system is active, do not pump the brakes or lift off the brake

pedal.

Engine drag torque control (MSR)

Read and observe   on page 173 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.

173

Assist systems

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

Traction control (TCS)

Fig. 204 

Key for the TCS system

Read and observe   on page 173 first.

The TCS prevents the drive wheels from spinning. TCS reduces the drive pow-

er transmitted to the wheels in the case of slipping wheels. Thereby, for exam-

ple, driving on road surfaces with low grip is made easier.
During a TCS intervention, the indicator light 

 flashes in the instrument clus-

ter.

Deactivation

Press the  

» Fig. 204

 button.

or: On Infotainment, press the 



 button, then tap the function surface  →

ESC system: → ASR off.

During deactivation the warning light lights up in the instrument cluster 

 and

an appropriate message is displayed in the instrument cluster.

Activation

Press the  

» Fig. 204

 button.

or: On Infotainment, press the 



 button, then tap the function surface  →

ESC system: → Activated.

During activation extinguished the warning light 

 is 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 “rocking a car free” when it has become stuck.

Electronic Differential Lock (EDL and XDS)

Read and observe   on page 173 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

traction 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.
XDS+ is an extension to the electronic differential lock (EDL). The XDS+ re-

sponds to the release of pressure on the wheels during fast cornering by

means of a braking intervention on the wheel on the inside of the corner on

the driven axle. By decelerating the individual wheels, this prevents the vehicle

from over-steering or understeering. This has a positive effect on the driving

stability and steerability of the vehicle.

Brake Assist (HBA)

Read and observe   on page 173 first.

HBA increases the braking effect and helps to shorten the braking distance.
The HBA is activated by very rapid depression of the brake pedal. To achieve

the shortest possible braking distance, the brake pedal must be applied firmly

until the vehicle has come to a complete standstill.
HBA is automatically switched off when the brake pedal is released.

Hill Start Assist

Read and observe   on page 173 first.

When driving on slopes, Hill Start Assist (hereinafter referred to simply as the

system) allows you to move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator

pedal without the vehicle rolling downhill on its own.
The vehicle is braked by the system for about 2 seconds after releasing the

brake pedal.
The system is active as of a 5% slope, if the driver door is closed. The system is

only ever active on slopes when starting off in forward or reverse.

174

Driving

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

Multicollision brake (MCB)

Read and observe   on page 173 first.

MCB helps to decrease speed after a collision by means of automatic braking

interventions and to stabilise the vehicle. This reduces the risk of a subsequent

crash due to uncontrolled vehicle movement.
The automatic brake interventions can take place only if the following condi-

tions are met.

There was a front, side and rear-end collision of a certain severity.
The impact speed was greater than approx. 10 km/h.
The brakes, the ESL and other required electrical systems remain function-

al after impact.
The accelerator pedal is not actuated.

Parking aid (ParkPilot)

Introduction

The parking aid (hereinafter simply referred to as the system) uses acoustic

signals on the Infotainment screen when manoeuvring around obstacles in the

vicinity of the vehicle.

WARNING

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

observed 

» page 172,

   in section Introduction.

Moving persons or objects may not be recognised by the system sensors.

Under certain circumstances, surfaces of certain objects and types of

clothing cannot reflect the system signals. There is a danger that such ob-

jects or people may not be recognised by the system sensors.

External noise sources may affect the signals of the system sensors.

There is a danger that obstacles may not be recognised by the system sen-

sors.

Before reversing, make sure that there are no small obstacles, such as

rocks, thin posts, etc., in front of or behind your vehicle. Such obstacles

may not be recognised by the system sensors.

CAUTION

Keep the system sensors 

» Fig. 205

 on page 176 clean and free from snow

and ice, and do not cover them with any objects of any kind, otherwise the

functioning of the system may be restricted.

In adverse weather conditions (heavy rain, water vapour, very low or high

temperatures, etc.), the functioning of the system may be impaired - “incorrect

recognition of obstacles”.

Accessories additionally installed on the vehicle rear, such as bicycle carriers,

can impair the system function.

Rear traffic alert and wizard for “Blind spot”Monitoring

Introduction

Fig. 210 

Installation location of the radar

sensors

The Rear Traffic Alert and Wizard for “blind spot” monitoring works based on

the information from the radar sensors in the rear bumper 

» Fig. 210

. The radar

sensors are not visible from the outside.

Rear Traffic Alert

The Rear Traffic Alert (hereinafter referred to as system) warns when leaving a

parking space from a transverse parking space about any approaching vehi-

cles.

Wizard for “blind spot”monitoring

The wizard for“blind spot monitoring” (hereafter referred to as system) draws

attention to vehicles travelling in the same direction in the next lane in the so-

called blind spots.
The “blind spot” is an area that is not easily visible in a rear-view mirror or even

directly from the vehicle.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance sys-

tems 

» page 172,

   in section Introduction.

WARNING

In the case of a collision or damage to the rear of the vehicle, the function

of the systems may be affected - risk of accident! Have the vehicle

checked by a specialist garage.

Do not cover the sensor area - the function of the systems could be limi-

ted.

Remove snow, ice and such obstacles from the sensor environment im-

mediately.

WARNING

The wizard for “blind spot”monitoring is limited by physical and system-re-

lated limits. Therefore, in the following situations the system can be de-

layed in drawing attention (or not at all) to a vehicle in the next land.

When a vehicle is approaching at a very high speed.

When passing through a very sharp curve or a roundabout.

CAUTION

If a trailer or other accessory is to be connected to the trailer socket, then

the two systems are not available.

In adverse weather conditions (heavy rain, water vapour, very low or high

temperatures, etc.), the system function may be limited - “failure to recognise

a vehicle”.

Accessories additionally installed on the vehicle rear, such as bicycle carriers,

can impair the system function.

Rear Traffic Alert- Operation

Fig. 211  Infotainment screen: warning indicator / driving situation

Read and observe   and   on page 178 first.

With the ignition switched on, the area next to and behind the vehicle is moni-

tored by the radar sensors of the system. If an approaching vehicle is detected

from the rear of the vehicle 

» Fig. 211

, the system warns of this fact.

Warning - vehicles with parking aid

You will hear a continuous tone and one of the following warning levels ap-

pears on the Infotainment screen 

» Fig. 211

.

An oncoming vehicle is detected. Do not continue driving backwards and

check around the vehicle.
A vehicle in the collision region is detected. Do not continue reversing 

.

Warning - vehicles without parking sensors

An acoustic signal is sounded and information for the driver to observe the

traffic behind is shown in the instrument cluster.

CAUTION

If a collision risk is detected, no automatic system-related braking takes place.

Wizard for “Blind Spot”Monitoring - Operation

Read and observe   and   on page 178 first.

At a speed over 15 km/h, the area alongside and behind the vehicle is moni-

tored by the system. At the same time, the distance and the difference in

speed between your vehicle and the other vehicles in the monitored area can

be measured.

A

B

When driving, the sensors monitor an area to the left and right to the extent of

a normal lane width.
If a vehicle is detected in the “blind spot” area, the system indicates this vehi-

cle by the warning light 

 in the exterior mirror.

System limitation

The system is unable to recognise the specific lane width by means of sensors.

Therefore this can e.g. in the following cases respond to a vehicle in a further

lane.

When driving on a road with narrow lanes or on the lane edge.

Driving around a bend.

The system may also respond to objects on the roadside such as crash barri-

ers, noise barriers or similar objects.

Switching between CCS and speed limiter

a)

If no speed limit is set, the current speed is set as the speed limit.

After starting the system, the current speed is set as the speed limit, the warn-

ing light 

 lights up in the instrument cluster.

Exceeding the speed limit during the regulation

If, during the setting, it is necessary to exceed the speed limit (e.g. to over-

take), the accelerator pedal must be pressed fully.
When exceeding the speed limit (e.g. driving down a hill), an acoustic signal

sounds and the warning light 

 flashes in the instrument cluster.

The regulation is resumed once the speed has fallen below the set limit.

Note

By pressing the button 

D

 during the control this is cancelled and the CCS is

activated.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Introduction

The Adaptive Cruise Control (hereinafter referred to as ACC) maintains the set

speed and at the same time the distance to the vehicle ahead without the ac-

celerator or brake pedal being pressed.
The front of the vehicle and the distance to the vehicle ahead is monitored by

a radar sensor 

» page 172

.

The state in which the ACC maintains the speed or the proximity is described

as control from here on.

WARNING

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

observed 

» page 172,

   in section Introduction.

The driver must always be ready to take over the operation of the accel-

erator and brake pedal.

The ACC does not react when approaching a stationary obstacle, such as

traffic jams, vehicle breakdowns or vehicles waiting at a traffic light.

The ACC does not respond to crossing or oncoming objects.

If the ACC does not decelerate fast enough, immediately apply the vehi-

cle's foot brake.

WARNING

For safety reasons, do not use the ACC under the following conditions.

When driving in turning lanes, motorway exits or construction sites, to

avoid an unwanted acceleration to the stored speed.

When visibility is poor, (e.g. fog, heavy rain, thick snowfall).

When road conditions are poor (e.g. ice, slippery road, gravel, dirt road).

Driving into “sharp” corners or in steep gradients / on steep inclines.

185

Assist systems

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

WARNING (Continued)

When driving through places where metal objects (such as metal build-

ings, railway tracks, etc.) can be found.

When driving through very divided and enclosed spaces (such as large-

capacity garages, car ferries, tunnels and the like.).

Note

The ACC is designed primarily for use on motorways.

The ACC reduces the speed by automatically releasing the accelerator or by

means of a braking procedure as appropriate. If the brakes are used for an au-

tomatic speed reduction at any moments, then the brake light illuminates.

In case of failure of more than one brake light on the vehicle or on the con-

nected trailer, the ACC becomes unavailable.

The control automatically cancels the engagement of the brake supportive

assistance systems (e.g. ESC) or when the maximum permitted engine speed is

exceeded.

Operation

Fig. 222  Instrument cluster display: Examples of ACC displays

Fig. 223  Instrument cluster display: Examples of ACC status displays

Read and observe   on page 185 first.

The ACC makes it possible to set a speed of 30-160 km/h as well as to set the

distance from the vehicles in front.
The ACC can detect a vehicle that is up to approx. 120 m ahead using the radar

sensor.

Control activated - no vehicle detected.
Regulation deactivated - no speed stored.
Control activated (vehicle detected).

Note to reduce speed

If the delay of the ACC is insufficient in relation to the vehicle in front, the

warning light

 lights up in the instrument cluster and the display shows a

message to engage the brake pedal.

Note

Some ACC notifications in the display of the instrument cluster may be hidden

by notifications for other functions. An ACC notification automatically appears

for a brief moment when there is a change in status of the ACC.

Automatic stopping and starting

Read and observe   on page 185 first.

Vehicles with an automatic transmission can decelerate to a complete stop

and start moving again using the ACC.

Decelerate to a complete stop

If a vehicle ahead decelerates to a standstill, the ACC will also decelerate your

vehicle to a complete stop.

Starting to drive again after a holding period

As soon as the vehicle ahead starts moving again after a holding period, your

vehicle will also move and the speed will continue to be controlled. Control is

automatically disconnected in case of longer holding periods.
