Software update (bug fixes)

Post by Rhevian » Thu Oct 22, 2020 9:43 am

I have had the airbag warning light on since Saturday, so I booked my car in for investigation - due in tomorrow. Since then VW have stated on the First Movers Facebook page that there is an initial software patch available this week to fix several bugs, including this one. I have just called my dealer, and they confirmed they received the update yesterday and will be applying the update to my car tomorrow.

I thought the point was that you didn’t need to go to a dealer to perform a software update?

I had the airbag warning yesterday too - first and only time.

I understand updates need to be done at the dealer until the big January release which among other things is supposed to enable over the air updates (and squish the other known bugs hopefully!)

I have also had the airbag warning light problem - it has been on continuously since the weekend. I contacted the dealer on Monday and was told it was a known issue and they were expecting a fix, but couldn't say when.

@Rhevian Can you give me any info about the update or who your dealer is. My dealer so far claims to know nothing about the update, which is very frustrating. I'd love to point him at a dealer who does know something and then maybe I can get the update too.

Since the airbag warning first appeared last week, it always reappeared when starting the car.

My dealer is Vindis group, Cambridge branch. https://vindisgroup.com/dealers/vindis- ... ice-centre

They did not complete the update on Friday, and they still have the car over the weekend - they expect to be finished on Tuesday! In the meantime, I have a Tiguan as a replacement.

I have my car back, the software has been updated from v0564 to v0570 (display is still on 3074, nav was 20.7, now 20.9, codec 3.1.4, radio 1.30.19)

They sent me the standard “vehicle health check” report - it’s good to see that the cambelt change is not due 😉
