I had the same problem with ours...
It ia a faulty ign switch lock (the sensor) > Expensive part >
remove the cover underneath the steering column and locate the thin white flat (3) wire (runs from the ignition key lock down to a connector.
After starting the the car , dis-connect the connector under the dash that the Ign lock goes to , after that the car should start everytime.
You will need to replace the lock assy. if you want to fix this correctly ; I have been using ours for (6) months > no problem except the "Theft System " light stays on -

The easiest way to reset the computer coding system is to unhook your battery and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. If the code comes back on after starting your car then whatever is causing the code is still happening.
Beware that you will most likely need to know the code to unlock your radio if it has the theft protection built in where if power is unhooked from the radio the radio is locked until you follow the procedure outlined in your owners manual with a code to get it back working. If you don't have the code, your Volkswagen dealer can help you out as well.

I have no idea what a skoda octavia is, but I know brakes are brakes. You have 2 bolts holding the pads in a slide, the bolts have threads only at the top, the rest is the slide, pull those bolts, if that doesn't release the slide, take out the 2 bolts holding the caliper on there, pull the slide out the other way. replace the pads, make sure they go back in the way came out. Put the bolts back on, tighten them up, you should be all set. The pad thickness sensor is just a ground, when the wire hits metal, it turns on a light, It should go off when it is not touching anything. You should have squealers on there too, they give an audible screech telling you it is time for some new pads. Hope this helps.
