I'm pretty new to this sort of thing so apologies if I'm talking nonsense or being too vague.
I recently purchased a 2010 Octavia S 1.6 TDI. There are no buttons on the wiper stalk to control the display on the trip computer and the black stick protruding from the dash only allows me to either set the time, reset the trip or see when the next service is due. I would like to be able to see my MPG, range etc.
If I were to replace the wiper stalk with the version that has the rocker buttons on the end and underside; would I then also have to reprogram/replace the trip computer?
Owned my Octavia 1.9 tdi 3 months now and totally unsure on the accuracy of the mpg average and the miles left with fuel remaing .... looking at mpg ....generally getting around 60mpg on my trips to work ...my old car claimed around 48 ... yet the old car seemed cheaper to run on fuel ... and then the computer miles left thing .... say I fill up to around 3/4 a tank ...it'll say I have 620 miles of fuel left .... drive 25 miles to work and check again ..580 ...always get around 200 miles less than the computer says for the fuel I've put in......any thoughts?
I have just bought a (used) Octavia II 62reg CR SE 1.6 TDI. This trim level has the maxidot display (verified by opening door as suggested in forums), bolero radio and bluetooth connectivity.
My problem is that the maxidot screen only shows phone connectivity status/options and car image when a door is open. The controls for the maxidot in this octavia are the buttons on the windscreen wiper stalk.
When I hit reserve fuel, my mileage range pops up on the maxidot for a few seconds, likewise when the outside temparature drops below 4oC I get an ice warning.
I would like to know if I can scroll between the range/MPG/other options as the main display on the maxidot (as other octavias (and golfs) I have been in, do).
I have attached some images of the options I get on my display below.
As this is my first skoda, I am new to this forum - I have searched and scrolled through to see if my problem has already been mentioned, but I have been unable to find anyone with exactly the same problem as me (Although a few similar problems). If I have missed this please let me know!
As you may know, there was a trip computer (TC-6 and TC-6P) made specifically for Skoda Felicia 1.3 and 1.6. According to user manual, the fuel consumption of a Felicia 1.3 warmed-up engine at idle is 0.8 liter/hour.
What do you think of that value? To me that looks way too low. Do you have any measured data?
