      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>       

Door & Trunk open warning lights on the dashboard

Hi Guys,

I have a Skoda Fabia I. Sedan (2004.09, facelift model), with an MFA dashboard
(6Y0 920 881 M) and a genuine Skoda wireless central locking system.

The current soft coding is: 00101

How can I activate the door open and the trunk open warning signals?
I assume that there are SMD leds soldered behind the pictrograms.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Hi, 16101 is the coding for that dash with door opening warning lights.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

The dash accepted the code, but the warning lights are still not on (even not when I turn the ignition ON).

Is it possible that I need a "hard reset" for the dash? May I disconnect the battery for some time? Edited by Ted Mosby

Hi, Have re checked code I gave you that is correct, it looks like your car may not be wired for door open warnings,to check go to Cent. Elec. Address 09, measuring block 05 and see if door opening is active.

Hi,

In the meantime I found it in one of my PDF-s:

For vehicles with dash panel insert 6Y0 920 xxx x:

00 No equipment
01 Brake pad warning light
02 Seat belt warning light
04 Windshield washer system warning light
08 Warning light for failure of a light bulb
16 Warning light indicating an open door

I've checked that measuring block: I can see the doors' state individually that they are opened or closed.

Cent. Elect.
6Q1 937 049 D
Coding: 17435

Hi
Strange that it shows up on vcds and not on instrument cluster,only suggestion I can think of is go thro adaptions on inst. cluster and central elec's and see if there is a option. Run output test on instument cluster and see if light comes on.

No success so far, I've checked the adaptations and found nothing.

Some information:

The dash only accepts these codes and every variations of them (00, 01, 02, 03, 16, 17, 19):

00 No equipment
01 Brake pad warning light
02 Seat belt warning light
16 Warning light indicating an open door

Strange thing, that the break pad warning and the seat belt warning appear on the dash (and in the output tests as well),
but the oper door indicator doesn't... :(

If I try one the following, the code remains the old:

04 Windshield washer system warning light
08 Warning light for failure of a light bulb

What do you think, why? Too bad, I planned to install a windshield washer warning...

Hi Ted,
We dont seem to be making much progress with this, just out of intrest set the coding at 18101 and see if the seat belt light stays on, with belt unfastened,and you should get a audible alarm ping above 15-20 mph.Then see if you get the same ping by driving the car withh a door not closed propelerly.

There's no audible alarm in any of these cases at all...

Edit:
One of my friends confirmed THE EXACT SAME results with a 6Y0 920 883 B dash and
with a 6Q1 937 049 D (the same as mine) central electronic module.

I couldn't let this go just like that...

I took my dash out and as it turned out no wonder that the warning lights are not working because the LEDs are missing:

I started to search for facelift elegance models on a used car site, for a dash
with an active open door warning, but I found none of them. Strange...

Just the 1st generation dash:

And I've never ever seen a Fabia I. with an active trunk open warning light.

And one more thing: I've tried to measure voltage with the dash inserted back just like this and an open door, but it was 0V. Edited by Ted Mosby
