I agree with recent comment about how distracting this fault is....it booms out of the speakers far louder than the radio and always startles me. Skoda need to pull their finger out with this one before someone stoves their car in to the back of something whilst distracted.....if I could disable the stupid unnecessary SOS system I would.

Strange .. I have the fault which shows up on the maxi-dot at start and occasionally reminds me with a 'ping' mid journey and the orange warning triangle is on permanently. However, the light next to the overhead 'red button' is always on green, and I have never once heard a verbal warning from the speakers despite the radio being on all the time.

If the light is green, it should be working. What does the maxidot message say?
The warning triangle is for any fault, not just the SOS.

"SOS Emergency Call Restricted" and 'SOS Fault' next to the warning triangle.

I'm facing this exact problem though the warning and beep is only once few seconds to starting the car. The yellow triangle remains but no beeps or alerts thereafter.

Car's booked for service tomorrow. Will update how it goes.

they will either tell you they have reset it, or say there is nothing wrong. The will basically just wash your car and give it back in the same faulty condition. Mine went in on wednesday for a 2nd time and was told its fine :oops: :oops: :oops: . Heres the proof from today that says different.. 5 ****ing time it went off just in one short trip to asda less tahn 2 miles.

After having the SOS fault for several months off & on, it got to a point where it was alerting on every journey and then the warning triangle stayed on permanently, with a red light on the SOS button itself. Took Kodi to Simpsons Skoda in Preston, where they kept it for a week, and seem to have resolved it by replacing the entire SOS unit, wiring and connector. Fault hasn't reappeared since I took the car back on Friday.....fingers crossed they have cured it, as the car was pretty much unusable before.
As a courtesy car, Simpsons arranged for VW UK to loan me a 3.0 V6 TDI Toureg.....what a beast of a car, I literally watched the fuel gauge go down as I was driving!!!
Only problem when picking the Kodiaq up, was all the rear trims in the boot surrounding the rear pillars had been left hanging off and the roof lining hadn't been reattached with its clips......yet it was ready to collect!!!! Dealer very apologetic when I rang to complain.....but I fixed it all myslef to save another journey to dealer.
