Emergencies

Before changing a bulb, make sure you

have the correct new bulb.

Do not touch the glass part of the bulb

with your bare hands, use a cloth or paper
towel instead, since the fingerprints left on
the glass will vaporise as a result of the
heat generated by the bulb, they will be
deposited on the reflector and will impair
its surface.

Depending on the level of equipment fit-

ted in the vehicle, LEDs may be used for
part or all of the interior and/or exterior
lighting. LEDs have an estimated life that
exceeds than that of the car. If an LED light
fails, go to an authorised workshop for its
replacement.

Introduction

The vehicle can be fitted with a instrument
panel digital lap timer or one Digital (SEAT
Cockpit).

After switching the engine on with a 12-volt
battery that is heavily discharged or newly
changed some system settings (such as the
time, the date, the personalised comfort set-
tings and the programming) might be altered
or deleted. Check and correct these settings
once the battery is sufficiently charged.

WARNING

Any distraction may lead to an accident,
with the risk of injury.

Do not operate the instrument panel con-

trols when driving.

To reduce the risk of accident and injury,

only make adjustments to the instructions

Doors, bonnet and rear lid open

When the vehicle is unlocked and while driv-
ing, the instrument panel display shows if any
of the doors, the bonnet or rear lid are
opened and, in some cases, it is also indica-
ted by an audible warning. The display may
vary according to the type of instrument pan-
el fitted.

Selector lever positions (DSG® dual clutch
gearbox)

The current position of the selector lever is
shown on the side of the lever and on the in-
strument panel display. When the lever is in
the 

D/S

 position or in the Tiptronic position, in

some cases, the gear engaged in each case
is shown on the instrument panel display .

Outside temperature indicator

If the outside temperature is lower than ap-
proximately +4 °C (+39 °F), the “ice crystal
symbol” 

 on the outside temperature dis-

play also lights up. This symbol remains lit un-
til the outside temperature exceeds +6 °C
(+43 °F) 

››› 

.

When the vehicle is stationary, when the aux-
iliary heater is switched on or when driving at
very low speeds, the outside temperature in-
dicated may be higher than the actual tem-
perature due to the heat produced by the en-
gine.

The margin of measurement ranges from
-45 °C (-49 °F) to +76 °C (+169 °F).

Gear-change recommendation

While driving, the instrument panel of certain
vehicles may indicate a gear recommenda-
tion for saving fuel

tion is on, the instrument panel display indi-
cates the direction in which you are driving
with a symbol, e.g. NW for Northwest.

When the Infotainment system is on and there
is no route guidance active, the graphic rep-
resentation of a compass is also shown.

WARNING

Even when the outside temperature is high-
er than freezing temperature, some roads
and bridges could be frozen.

The “ice crystal symbol” indicates that

there may be a risk of freezing.

At outside temperatures above +4 °C

(+39 °F), there may be ice even when the
“ice crystal symbol” is not on.

The outside temperature sensor takes a

guideline measurement.

Note

There are different instrument panels and

therefore the versions and instructions on
the display may vary. In the case of dis-
plays without warning or information texts,
faults are indicated exclusively by the con-
trol warning lamps.

Some indications on the instrument panel

screen may be concealed by a sudden
event, e.g. an incoming call.

Depending on the equipment, some set-

tings and instructions can be carried out or
displayed on the infotainment system as
well.

If there are several warnings at the same

time, the symbols will be displayed one af-

ter the other for a few seconds. The sym-
bols will stay on until you remove the
cause.

If when switching on the ignition warnings

are shown about existing faults, it might not
be possible to change the settings or show
the information as described. In this case,
go to a specialised workshop and request a
repair.

Instrument panel menus

The number of menus and information items
available will depend on the vehicle’s elec-
tronics and features.

A specialised workshop can programme or
modify additional functions, according to the
vehicle equipment. SEAT recommends visiting
a SEAT dealership for this.

Some menu options can only be read when
the vehicle is stationary.

Driver alert system (break recom-
mendation)

Fig. 62 

On the instrument panel display: driver

alert system symbol.

The Fatigue detection informs the driver when
their driving behaviour shows signs of fatigue.

Function and operation

Fatigue detection determines the driving be-
haviour of the driver when starting a journey,
making a calculation of tiredness. This is con-
stantly compared with the current driving be-
haviour. If the system detects that the driver is
tired, an audible warning is given with a
sound and an optic warning is shown with a
symbol and complementary message on the
instrument panel display 

››› 

Fig. 62

. The mes-

sage on the instrument panel display is
shown for approximately 5 seconds, and de-
pending on the case, is repeated. The system
stores the last message displayed.

The message on the instrument panel display
can be switched off by pressing the 



button on the windscreen wiper lever or the
button

 on the multi function steering wheel

The message can be recalled to the instru-
ment panel display using the multifunction
display

Conditions of operation

Driving behaviour is only calculated on
speeds above about 65 km/h (40 mph) up to
around 200 km/h (125 mph).

Switching on and off

Fatigue detection can be activated or deacti-
vated in the infotainment system using the
function button

System limitations

The Fatigue detection has certain limitations
inherent to the system. The following condi-
tions can limit the Fatigue detection or pre-
vent it from functioning.

At speeds below 65 km/h (40 mph)

At speeds above 200 km/h (125 mph)

When cornering

On roads in poor condition

In unfavourable weather conditions

When a sporty driving style is employed

In the event of a serious distraction to the

driver

Fatigue detection will be restored when the
vehicle is stopped for more than 15 minutes,
when the ignition is switched off or when the
driver has unbuckled their seat belt and
opened the door.

In the event of slow driving during a long peri-
od of time (below 65 km/h, 40 mph) the sys-
tem automatically re-establishes the tired-
ness calculation. When driving at a faster

74

Instruments and warning/control lamps

speed the driving behaviour will be recalcula-
ted.

WARNING

Do not let the comfort afforded by the Fati-
gue detection system tempt you into taking
any risks when driving. Take regular breaks,
sufficient in length when making long jour-
neys.

The driver always assumes the responsi-

bility of driving to their full capacity.

Never drive if you are tired.

The system does not detect the tiredness

of the driver in all circumstances. Consult
the information in the section 

››› 

page 74,

System limitations

.

In some situations, the system may incor-

rectly interpret an intended driving ma-
noeuvre as driver tiredness.

No warning is given in the event of the ef-

fect called microsleep!

Please observe the indications on the in-

strument panel and act as is necessary.

Note

Fatigue detection has been developed

for driving on motorways and well paved
roads only.

If there is a fault in the system, have it

checked by a specialised workshop.

Road signs detection system

1)

Fig. 63 

On the instrument panel display: ex-

amples of speed limits or overtaking prohibi-

tions with their respective additional signs.

The traffic sign detection system records the
standard traffic signs in front of the vehicle
with a camera located on the base of the in-
terior mirror and provides information about
speed limits and overtaking prohibitions.

Within its limitations, the system also displays
additional signals, such as time-specific pro-
hibitions, signs for vehicles towing trailers

››› 

page 256

 or limitations that only apply in

the event of rain. Even on journeys without
signs, the system may display any applicable
speed limits.

The traffic sign detection system does not
work in all countries. Keep this in mind when
travelling abroad.

Shown on the display

In Germany, on motorways and vehicle
roads, besides speed limits and overtaking
provisions the system also displays the end of
prohibition signs. The valid speed limit at the
time in other countries is always shown.

The traffic signs detected by the system are
displayed on the dash panel display

››› 

Fig. 63

 and, depending on the navigation

system fitted in the vehicle, on the infotain-
ment system as well
