    Reprograming a new dashboard

    Hi all I have recently tried to fix my pixalated screen on my dashboard following various threads, and it did not fix the problem. Next i ordered a new screen off ebay which was £34 free delivery. The advert said it would need to be soldered in by a competant person, so my freind who solders on a regular basis said he would have a go, hours & hours later it lit up but no information was displayed on the screen. next i went to a breakers yard and got another dash which turns out to be more pixalated than my original one, and i cant start the car because the new dash is not programed to my car! apparently it can be sorted by VAG.com but i dont have it. and dont know anyone near Sittingbourne in kent who has one?

    Im guessing i could fit my old dash and drive to meet someone, then fit the new dash and programe it to get me back to where i started from. any offers or advice would be appreciated.

    Nick

    Nick, have a look over on the vcds section of the forum as well. There is a vcds user map in there with members locations, hopefully someone near you. If there is you can pm them and ask them to scan for you. Good luck Nick.

    Thought i would bite the bullet and speak to Audi. phoned em and asked for a price on replacement consol and he said are you sitting down? £467 + VAT then i would have to pay for fitting so that they could program it to my car! They will not program a part supplied by me because they could not gaurentee it! I dont want a Gaurentee I just want to drive my car!!!!
