    Hi,

    I fitted a dashcam into my wife's Ateca the other day and all was fine, however, we're now getting a dashcam flag on the screen when the ignition is turned on.

    I fitted through the side panel and hardwired into the fuse box on the cigarette lighter fuse. As part of removing the panel, I had to unclip the airbag on/off switch which is a simple connector. I have reconnected it and checked all the fuses are still in place, but can't shift the error.

    Anyone else had this? I've emailed the dealer, hopefully, it's just a reset.

    You may have to plug it into a code reader and clear the code then that should be it done

    Exactly the same happened to me when I fitted one to my Ateca, cleared using my OBDeleven, as Yellow fr has already said.

    Good to hear the Obdeleven cleared it. I triggered mine off on an Altea many moons ago by pulling a fuse under the bonnet, in those days it was a trip to the garage to have it cleared. I learnt from that not to pull fuses if you didnt know what they were connected too.

    I think an open circuit on an airbag is deemed critical so you can't just plug it back in... other systems come up with errors I find on the Ateca but you can ignore them and delete them. Seem to get bus errors from time to time on mine. I'm sure going off with a door not shut triggers an error... hard door rubber in a new car. The partners Arona was riddled with errors that the dealer just deleted. I left those to them having discussed what I found with the partner. One was steering.

    I did post up a map of the Ateca fuses on here.... I'm sure Sýphon found that thread :).

    Oh yes Stepdey:

    Disconnect battery while doing any electrical work to avoid error codes being logged.

    That's what those Erwin manuals say :).

    Actually Syphon should get a prize for getting to the fuse box in a RHD which is hidden behind the drop down glove box. My fingers arent strong enough to get the dampner arm off. Didnt want to do anything but wanted to be able to change a fuse if I needed too. Those faulty extension lights you use to get for Xmas that would blow a fuse and never use again.

    Its a VCDS scan reset using whatever VCDS tool (e.g.. VCDS itself, Obdeleven etc). Basically if you mess with airbag fuses by accident you have to do a clear error to get rid of the message. Its a safety feature. I guess Syphon decided better to be safe than sorry so took it to a dealer.

    As another poster said disconnect the battery before electrical work but then if you have automatic mirrors that fold and electric window on one touch they can need retraining to work correctly.

    Retraining as per the manual after battery disconnection:

    Resetting one-touch opening and closing
    The automatic open and close function will
    not work if the battery has been temporarily
    disconnected. The function can be restored
    as follows:
    – Close the window as far as it will go by lift-
    ing and holding the electric window switch.
    – Release the switch and then lift it again for
    1 second. This will re-enable the automatic
    function.
    If you push (or pull) a button to the first
    stage, the window will open (or close) until
    you release the button. If you push or lift the
    button briefly to the second stage, the win-
    dow will open (one-touch opening) or close
    (one-touch closing) automatically. If you op-
    erate the button while the window is opening
    or closing, it stops at this position.
