The notification disappears after a while when the interior cools down.
Thanks to Dr. Bhaswanth Dhoorjati for sending this query in via this Team-BHP share page!
I purchased a Volkswagen Taigun Comfortline manual in October 2022. I have driven it for 10,000 km so far.
The only issue with it is that a “System overheated started” notification pops up on the infotainment system when the car is parked in the hot sun. The notification disappears after a while when the interior cools down.
I am sending some pictures to aid you in the diagnosis. I would be really grateful if I could get your opinion on this issue.
Here’s what BHPian thanixravindran had to say on the matter:
Is this for the infotainment system? Forget about the real issue, why can’t at least they write it in proper English? Product management and engineering team who specified and developed this should be roasted in the same heat
Any idea on which region it is to know the temperature (edit – saw 36deg) and whether this notification came during switching on the car (did the screen just froze or infotainment system didn’t started up). This seems the 8 inch infotainment system which was changed due to chip shortage (aka cost cutting). So they didn’t tested enough as we are not even fully into Indian summer yet.

A little off topic even though related.
In the summer of 2018 we spent a lot of time sightseeing in Italy. I mainly use my iPhone camera for all photography. I used to use my iPhone XS Max at the time. At least on 3 or 4 separate occasions in different places, the phone would overheat and then stop working. And after placing it inside my carry all back pack amongst a few bottles of cold water etc for maybe 10 mins, it would get back to normal.
I think this ‘system overheating’ issue can happen to any and all electronic things. Especially if there is prolonged exposure to the hot sun. So in my book there is nothing abnormal at all. Best to park in shade.
Or if you have to park in the sun, reduce the time and keep the windows open a slit so that some air movement can happen.
Here’s what BHPian audioholic had to say on the matter:
This isn’t the 8 inch Panasonic head unit. It is the HU that comes with the entry level variants and seems to be India specific. Hence the poor implementation wrt English messages. The Panasonic HU is an EU spec unit and would have been tested far more rigorously.
