It should cut out with the cluitch...if you dip the clutch with the cruise on the revs would speed up as you try to change gear.
Page 160 of your manual
To temp disengage cruise system:
-Press brake pedal
-Press clutch pedal
if i set the cruise at say 80mph then pull resume at 30mph in second it will pull to the red line, dip clutch and change to third revs take a second to cut back in and it then pulls hard again to the red line. (much harder than then using the accelerator manually) At no point does the cruise control disengage when the clutch is touched, the only way to disengage is touch the breaks or the cruise control leaver.
Sounds like the switch on your clutch is out of range or disconnected.
If you have Sat Nav and MFSW, depressing the right-sided "thumb-scrollinging thing" repeats the last instruction.
I never Sat Nav in the my 07 MK2 TT and always wondered what this button did.
Thanks for the tip re using using the needles on the dash to quickly set the speed warning! Loving it!!!
With the crap weather we've had of late, I've discovered that the car drops the windscreen wiper 'mode' when you pull up to a stop:
'Fast' wiping, switches to normal wiping
'Normal' wiping switches to intermittant etc.
Thought it was faulty at first! LOL, RTFM problem! :happy:
I've decided to leave my wiper stalk in the intermittent mode. With the rain sensor pack, wipers kick-in automatically and switch between intermittent, normal depending on the amount of rain falling. Hasn't really chucked it down to noticed 'fast' wiping.
My S3's auto rain sensor is not over zealous unlike other manufacturers I have driven so gets the :thumbsup:
What I meant about the cruise control is that if I have it set at 30mph in 6th gear and come to a hill so I have to change down the cruise control stays active so it will continue driving in the lower gear without me having to restart the cruise control.
I will check page 160 tomorrow and see what it says. mhill, do you have a 59 plate car as well??
I know this is going to sound incredibly stupid.
But yesterday when I was driving, I never knew you could press 'Mode' on the SW and had the ability to scroll through the phonebook on the bluetooth.
That is immense. :wub:
I've had a couple of A4's with cruise control and you can change gear in those with the cruise control turned on.
When the car is switched off, if you engage the indicator stalk (i.e. indicate left or right) it turns on the sidelights on that side of the car.
No it got close to flooding here (live near Kendal) but didn't. Did cause a bit of trouble for me getting to and from work as certain roads were shut due to flooding but nothing in comparison to what happened in Cockermouth.
Another thing I didnt realise is that you can pre set your speed for the cruise control in 5 mph increments above 20 mph and then turn it on and it will accelerate to that speed.Quote:
-Press clutch pedal for a relatively long period
This is taken from the S3 Sportback owners manual part number 101.561.8PS.20 if anyone is interested in checking for any other changes.
this thread has been great to learn about all the little gadgets/options etc! does anyone know where i can download a pdf version of a MY2010 S3 manual?
Found this out the other night quite by accident :redface:
Driving away (S-tronic) with the handbrake on and you get a warning on the DIS 'Handbrake applied' LOL
Not just on S-Tronics that :)
Found a new one recently with the Symphony. Playing a CD about halfway through, wanted to eject one of the other discs, so pressed Eject, pressed '6' (CD 5 was playing). CD 6 ejected, it then reloaded CD5 and played back from the same place, no going back to the beginning of the cd. :)
Yeah one touch is working perfectly - and yep I stood there like a plank pointing the remote at the car holding it down for a good 10 seconds :D
Do you know when the update was brought out?
Ah well, mines an 09 so it should already have it then! Nonetheless... Pressing it again just makes the indicators blink saying "I'm already open!" :(
Get a VAGCOM on there and enable it mate
My Corsa used to do it ffs :laugh:
Alter it in the DIS menu, might be there, it's where I found my option when I read this and it didn't work, something like convenience windows...
Ah ok! will check it out later, thanks for the tip Kevin =)
Edit: Was in the DIS menu as Kevin suggested :) Surprised it wasn't on by default, couldn't really get in the way but handy if you're walking away and realise you left the windows open or whatever :)
