    A couple of problems on my S3

    I've had my S3 for nearly 12 months and it has run faultlessly until this weekend, first problem is a knocking coming from under the car when going over bumps and then the following day the driver infomation display stopped working, it still reads ok on start up and shows when a car door is open but then goes blank.(no av. mpg etc)

    Any ideas?

    the information display (dis) could just be switched off once ur doors are closed press the button on the underneath of the stalk to switch it on/off.

    Not being cheeky but have you turned the DIS on? Press the reset button on the bottom of the wiper stalk. If not, i think some folk have had issues with the DIS failing - a search should throw up plenty.

    Knocking could be a number of things but I think ARB bushes is pretty common problem. Again, plenty of info on this forum! Good luck!
