    Dash Illumination

    I think I've seen this on here before but can't seem to find it using search.

    What and how exactly do I need to change with VAG-COM so that the dash needles on my 2001 1.8T are on all the time?

    Is there anything else I can change easily?

    TIA

    TT procedure below.

    No idea if it bears any resemblance to your car.

    so make note of anything before changes, all at your won risk

    Re: Dash Illumination

    Anyone know if this will work on the A3?

    Otherwise it looks like I'm going to have to try it tonight.

    Re: Dash Illumination

    I went out and tested the above link but it doesn't work on the A3, channel 19 comes up as not available in VAG-COM. I have a different instrument cluster than the TT my model is a AB-KOMBIINSTR VDO D12. I did go through each channel nd make a note of what it was set to with the list below:

    Does anybody know what I need to change in the list above to enable the needle to be lit all the time? Or if it is even possible in the A3?

    Cheers
