    Hi All. Just got my Cupra Ateca last week and all is great apart from the BSM. I have to manually activate it every time I start the ignition in the settings menu. Is this normal? I’d have thought it should remember and stay activated?

    Cheers.

    I'm pretty sure mine stays activated.

    Mine stays active on my 2016 Ateca.

    If however you get mud on the rear bumber sides where the radar is placed it will disable blind spot until the mud is removed, you have to toggle back on. Perhaps somehow this has been triggered or the sensitivity needs adjusting. Ive only had that happen once when the rear end got plastered in mud, gave a warning and toggled to off. Unlike front assist that dries out and then continues to work without going into the menu.

    Thanks for the replies. THink mine must be faulty as it keeps randomly deactivating (not every time now) without any warning message. Noticed it also turns the rear assist off too. Will get on to the dealer.

    Had it in the dealer and they cleared all apart from one of the error codes and that seems to have fixed it. Had no issues since yesterday. However it is booked in at a local VW dealer to have the rear radar recallibrated as SEAT don’t have the tool to do it. Aparantly that is the only way to fully clear the error code even though it appears fine now.

    Thanks for the info. I have seen the test tools online for the front alignment but never the rear.
