So spoke to my dealer today and its apparently a control unit that has failed, which is an easy fix. If memory serves someone else had the same issue as this and the same part failing.

So the good news for me at least is its an easy fix however the not so good news is that this is apparently a common problem that SKODA are aware of I.E they know these parts are failing.


However due to this there is a high demand for them and they are now in short supply so now waiting for a part that's on back order
Good to know, they can sort it out when it’s in for the lane assist failing on mine too.

I spoke to one dealer (not the one I bought it from - I reported them to Skoda) and there is an outstanding maintence update one the emergency systems required, I believe it resolves the SOS button issues.

It does, it is a wiring loom in the steering column needs replacing AFAIK

HI there,

So I seem to be one of those who suffer from the same issue.
My dealer has been pretty clueless.

Are you saying that it is a 'control unit' or is it THE control unit (i.e. is there more than one?) and have you had it changed (under warranty one would hope...) and has it sorted the issue? Thanks in advance.

I'll try to get more details on what exactly failed when i pick my car up as still waiting on getting my car back. Due to the part being in high demand or just generally hard to get it was placed on back order so will of taken 2 weeks to get it sorted but i'm lead to believe its an easy enough fix only time will tell on that one.

And yes its being done under warranty as the car had done less that 300 miles when the problem started which to be frank just isn't good enough safe to say i kicked off with Skoda about it as well

So spoken to my dealer today and they had replaced the part that was coming up as being faulty and it didn't fix the issue when i spoke to them the first time they where waiting for a response from the technical "experts" at Skoda UK. I use the expert term very loosely as there expertly informed solution was basically start pulling parts out another Kodiaq and putting it in mine and when something works that's what was wrong

It sounds like the joys of getting the first of a brand new model of a car. No spares in the country so raid a showroom model. I had to wait over two weeks for a replacement windscreen following a row with a large flying stone. My insurance company use Autoglass and they really had to search high and low. Still waiting for an answer to my email to the dealer. A fine vehicle , so don't get me wrong, particularly as most of the bugs should have been sorted in the European launch well over 12 months ago . But, beware, the General Public are the best road testers and gadget fiddlers for any new model of car , so to be fair, the Audi Group seem to be no different . Still it's a Great Leap Forward from the days of British Leyland !

Hopefully the next time I take mine in it won't suddenly start behaving perfectly again - that was annoying, especially as I don't have a Skoda dealer anywhere near where I live. Although I think they had done a software update and/or reset for another issue so perhaps it works fine for a little while and then starts playing up. Which makes me think it is more likely to be the control system rather than the sensors...

Had the same problem. Side assist and blind spot not available.Brought it in with the dealer. They had to dismantle the rear bumper where they had to replace a stearing electr. Box which they had to order.Car was in for 5 days and received a replacement car for this period. Everything works fine again

Mines been at the dealer for over a week now and they replaced the unit but it’s still failing, they were not aware of it being a known fault. They have no idea what to do next and they don’t have anyone to look at it as both their ‘specialised techs’ are off ill and no idea when they will return.

I asked if they knew where else I could take it but I was told no and it was my problem and not theirs. Skoda once again have shown that they do not deserve our custom, not only don’t the dealerships have the equipment but the ones that do are clueless. I like the car when it works but Skoda don’t give an F about customer care so I am never going to recommend them

Given up all hope in Skoda and unless they sort it out soon they can either replace the car or release me from the contract.

Park your car in front of your dealer with a big paper : "out of order, dealer unable to repair" :-)


They'll find a solution
