Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

Are you saying it's not possible for the humidity to be increasing inside his headlamps when his lights come on? It clearly is increasing or there wouldn't be condensation. If the condensation only occurs when the lights are on it can only be the heat from the lights causing that humidity. Nope. I ...

Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

Somewhat dodgy physics there sorry. Condensation is caused either by an increase in humidity, or a decrease in air temperature (possibly caused by coming into contact with something cold, i.e. a window), but definitely not an by an increase in temperature :-) I've no idea what the mechanism is for ...

Re: Contacts on SIM card

I had nightmares with our Skoda Kodiaq with two drivers. Who's mobile phone would it sync with when we both were in the car? The fact that the Media system automatically started playing as soon as one of our iPhones was in contact distance, was also very annoying. So we took the decision to install...

Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

This sounds very normal. The inside of your headlight is heating up when you turn them on, therefore creating the condensation. If the inside of the unit remained at the same temperature as the outside then there would be no condensation. Somewhat dodgy physics there sorry. Condensation is caused e...

Re: Reverse gear - clunk

If manoeuvre braking has been selected in the parking and manoeuvring menu then rear sensors could be detecting some object and applying the brakes. I don't think the brakes come on until you're very very close. They stopped me no more than an inch from a lampost one day, along with a very loud bee...

Re: Reverse gear - clunk

This appears to be normal. It's been discussed before and I've experienced it myself on the rare occasion I've had a hill to reverse back on. I'm sure the electronic auto handbrake was given the blame for it and the "fix" might be to release the handbrake manually. Something like that anyway, hopefu...

Re: Tyre Pressure Monitoring

Hugh, why would you expect me to know ??????? This is a forum - not a 'I have more knowledge than you fest' so your response was abrupt and unnecessary. An answer was provided, I responded in a way that I considered there could be issues and Colin confirms my thoughts. My consideration that TPMS do...

Re: Tyre Pressure Monitoring

TPMS works on the rolling radius of the tyre. Therefore if you get a puncture the RR decreases. This is measured against the other tyre's RR hence the warning coming up. It CAN be 'mis-triggered' by hitting a pot hole, ice or snow or simply axle tramp, caused by over exuberant acceleration especial...

Re: Tyre Pressure Monitoring

" Are you trolling now? Let's pretend you're not for a while. It's clearly only going to think you've got a flat if a wheel is consistently rotating slower than the others. Missing a rotation here and there because you've hit a pothole or ran over a goat isn't going to make your car think you've go...
