I own a 2018 Velar D180 HSE R-Dynamic.
I live in Toronto, Canada and so far, every single time my Velar sits outside for a few hours in cold temperatures, when I start the engine, ALL the controls (including the Instrument MENU / phone / voice) located on the left side of the steering wheel will not function. This is a big inconvenience as more than one time I tried to use the MENU or answer a phone call and could not. As I can probably deal with the affected controls by using the available touchscreens, it is a different story for the Instrument MENU. Unless I am not aware of another way of accessing it.
All the controls found on the right hand side of the steering wheel are perfectly functional regardless of the temperature.
In order for me to be able to make use of the left side controls on the steering wheel, I have to leave the car running for a period of time till the engine gets a little warmer (have not found how much warmer
), then turn off the engine and turn it on again. Everything comes back to life after this process.
Note that the touchscreens are NOT being affected by the temperature thing.
Has anyone else experienced this behavior?
