The workshop guy probably won't know. Let akki_5 confirm I'm pretty sure its possible and I think I saw it when we were coding my vRS.

I am planning to get the rain and light sensor equipped assembly of the rear view mirror. I belive its NT possible to change the existing mirror with out changing the windshield. How true is that?

Hi guys
I faced a tricky situation today evening
My 2010 1.9 pd laura wouldn't start just the dashboard lights kept ticking with a clicking noise like from a relay
Finally pushed start the car and took back home being a sunday
Laura started on first self at home after parking

Have any one of you faced a similar problem?

Personally feel battery is the culprit but will get things checked tomorrow.

a) MFD- flashing at 55 mph

OK I got this corrected by myself - read the manual

b) MFD- Want the display to show total kms covered
How do I get the MFD to show the total KMS done till date. ?
At the moment I can only see it when I am at a standstill. (This occured after the *** had done my first service and reset the counter.)

Still stuck on this - no luck

c) OVRM heating:
Does the Laura Ambiente A/T cone with OVERM heating.? I tried this when it was rainign heavily this week in Mumbai and did not notice any difference.

OVRM- The Supervisor at the service station acknowledged that there was afault but they could not detect it so have asked Skoda HQ for help- Status Pending

d) Comming home and leaving lights
I am quite certain the Ambiente model does not have this feature but can I get this enabled at the *** with the help of thier VAS/VAG-COM ?

The service senter could not do this as the Ambiente does not have this feature

e) Audio speakers:
Are there speakers on each door on the trim ? . This appears to be in the form a netted little square on each door ??? Are the total no of speakers 4 or 8 ? in the Ambiente model ?
Sorted out - It was working.

f) Pollen filer for A/C:
Where is the filter for the Aircon located. I get a rather musty smell when I start the blower initially for around 30 seconds before I start the compressor. Could this be due to a dirty filter. Is it easy to clean or is it better to take it to a *** ?

Changed for INR 650/-

In addition I got he following changed;
1. Air filter (INR 1400)
2. pollen filter (INR650)
3. oil change (INR 5500)
4. oil filter
5. VAS inspection

Total amount incl labour was INR 10,000/-

Thanks in advance.
regards,
Seacat

Speed warning activated. You can deactivate it using the controls on the stalk.

b) MFD- Want the display to show total kms covered

At the moment I can only see it when I am at a standstill. (This occured after the *** had done my first service and reset the counter.)

This can also be done using the controls on the stalk. Seems like you have accidentally changed the mode to display speed in mph in the secondary mode instead of total odometer reading.

c) OVRM heating:
Does the Laura Ambiente A/T cone with OVERM heating.? I tried this when it was rainignheavily this week in Mumbai and did not notice any difference.

Not sure about this, but IIRC it has heated mirrors. You just need to switch it the setting on the dial. Oh, but before that you have to get the settings changed using VAS (only possible at service center) to activate heaters below 35C ambient temp (default set to 20C)

d) Comming home and leaving lights
I am quite certain the Ambiente model does not have this feature but can I get this enabled at the *** with the help of thier VAS/VAG-COM ?

Coming home is possible using the stalk and VCDS. Leaving home lights need VCDS and auto lights switch.

e) Audio speakers:
Are there speakers on each door on the trim ? . This appears to be in the form a netted little square on each door ??? Are the total no of speakers 4 or 8 ? in the Ambiente model ?

As mentioned by Akshay1234 above.

f) Pollen filer for A/C:

Sorry, not sure about this.

Thanks in advance.

Hope the above sorts out your issues.

Coming home is possible using the stalk and VCDS. Leaving home lights need VCDS and auto lights switch. Both need the rain and lights sensor.

I have a feeling this is not possible without changing the windscreen as the RLS (rain & light sensor) fits into the windscreen. You might have to change the windscreen to get the equipment installed.

Seems to be the battery but can't say for sure.

Very easy to change thru VCDS. I don't remember the correct steps at the back of my head but it wasn't all that tricky.

Default Re: New Laura Elegance 1.9 TDI A/T EDIT : Customising with a VAG-COM

Hey Akki,

I just saw your thread. I've been tinkering with my Passat 2011 using a Ross tech VCDS. Got a couple of things working, such as:

1. Number of flashes for lane change from 3 to 5
2. Auto rain closing, for both windows and sun roof
3. Horn alert while locking/unlocking the car

The rest is still out of reach because VCDS 11.11 does not support the new Passat B7. I mailed Ross tech customer care around 2 months back and they said that only an upgrade can solve this problem. Itís been a while since then and their website still has the same version posted for download. I hoping this will change soon.

Meanwhile, let us keep in touch and see what other things we can do to our VW, Skoda and Audi cars.

Cheers

Hi exhaustpipe, I think there have been a few upgrades to VCDS since you last posted here. Did you get things to work as desired?

Tried to change the country code to Japan in my Laura TSI but it kept giving me an error 31 : request out of range. Any ideas ?
