Driving modes - keeping them set

Hi,

Every time we switch the car ignition on, it reverts back to the default driving mode, how do we force the car to remember the last driving mode ? It’s so annoying, I need it to stay on ‘range” driving mode.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

It's not a Born thing, It's a VAG thing - has happened on every VW or Audi i've had since 2013.

The driving mode choice reverts to a certain one, or if it doesn't, the responses within the selected mode revert to a default e.g. on my old Golf R, I used to leave it in "Race", and it would still be in Race for next ignition cycle, but the throttle response was as per "normal" mode unless I cycled out of it and back into it. Probably some EU directive on fuel saving making it default to a certain value. For my E-Boost with the satellite mode buttons on the steering wheel, it's not really a bother for me. If I can get my OBD11 working again, i'll have a poke around for retaining driving mode profiles beyond a single ignition cycle.

It’s not a VAG thing at all - my old ‘19 Seat Ibiza kept driving modes as set.

I believe driving modes kan be kept with an OBD11 setting?
