Just hooked up bike rack for first time. This immediately created 6 car defects including protection systems, autohold, rear traffic assist and others. Wouldn't allow car to start, so called Skoda Assistance (AA in reality). Even with all disconnected, couldn't get restart and then tailgate and other doors wouldn't open. Around 1.5 hours later, he arrived and car had obviously reset and worked normally. Tested lighting for rack on both 7 and 13 pin connections to his van and this worked fine, so fault with towbar and lighting preparation. He indicated car would normally reset after around 30 minutes. See what Skoda offer on Monday!

I think while a tow bar is connected the rear and side assist do not work.

BIKE RACK NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SKODA ENYAQ!!!! Just heard from dealer who was investigating problem with Thule Easyfold bike rack, that according to them, the rack is not compatible with the car! Rack came with European 13 pin plug and they think my rack is too old (18 months) and I need a new one! Supposedly going to put this to skoda technical but not really convinced I'll get satisfactory result. At time of order, w told dealer we had rejected Kia e-niro as it couldn't carry bike rack and when picked up car at handover, senior salesman asked wife why we had picked enyaq. Her specific answer was "so that we could fit bike rack!" Now it seems we may still not be able to fit rack, unless it's one of theirs maybe? Not impressed with solution as I've never found anything that indicated or even hinted at needing a specifically compatible rack!
Wonder if Skoda technical read these posts and respond?
