Question for regular orange key users....

Post by RealGoneKid » Tue Apr 06, 2021 9:49 pm

... My partner uses her black key, I use the orange key. We drive pretty much 50/50 using these keys each week. She has her settings stored to user profile one. My aren’t, but as we all know they effectively default to profile 2.

After virtually every journey I make using my orange key, the next time my partner uses hers, the car fails to acknowledge her key, seat settings etc, and defaults it back to the guest profile. Until we assign it to profile one again in driver settings > driver profile etc.

Anyone else experiencing this? Is our initial set up wrong somewhere do you think, or is this only solved by us shelling out for a second black key?

Yes, i don't use the orange key regularly, but on the occasions i have i find the car reluctant to switch the profile back when reverting to the programmed black key as you say.

Maybe we should program the orange key to profile 2 rather than leaving it to pick up guest?

You are over estimating what the Restricted Care Key (the Orange one) does

Because you have not activated another profile when you have used the orange key (because the profile created in slot 2 isn't a full profile) , the car doesn't change back to the original profile afterwards.

The answer is I'm afraid a 2nd black key
