Question about 2005 Skoda Octavia 1.9
Posted by Anonymous on
its a VW for any american mechanics reading this and a skoda is now a glorified VW but a very nice car ,now as for this fault then iam at a loss as these cars never go wrong but you havent stated if the starter is clicking and not turning or if the relay is clicking but as this is a auto version it could be the inhibitor switch but without my head under the bonnet or more info i cannot really tell you ,could even be the immobilisor or the electrical switch on the back of the ignition key ,If you cannot find the fault then you can manually overide the starter by making sure vehicle is in park ,turn ignition on the using a piece of wire or a small screwdriver to bridge the fat terminal with the small one this will activate the starter to start it so you can get it to a garage.Now certain year vehicles will immobilise themselves if you change the engine oil as this turns on a sensor that engine is low on oil and this will stop vehicle from starting and only the dealer has the software to release it but if this is your case i know a way around this .

The light doesn't go out after you top up the air pressure in the tyres.There is a reset button, that you should press, and that will reset the tyre pressure
Usually it is in between the front seats, about where the handbreak is.
Find the button, press it and hold it down for a couple of seconds, and that will make the warning light go off.

most of the clutch hidraulic systems do not have purge valbe for air when I have that problem i follow the same steps of the brakes system and when the fluid is presurised I losse the bottom endon the clutch cylinder a few time untill no bubbles come out and that work for me very good.
