    Faulty driver display panel

    The driver display panel in between the speedo and rev counter is playing up. Doesn't display things properly, sorta looks like a lots of the individual dots that make up the actual diaplay are dead. I think the info is there but you can't read it due to the missing dots

    Anyone seen this happen before and what's the best thing to do? Do I have yto go to an Audi dealer to get sortted?

    yes you need to go to the dealer and have it replaced, again you need all id and no-one else can do this for you, new audi rules is that you need a special seven digit code and only audi licensed technicians can get this code.

    500?!?! F*ck me! I guess it's one of those things that just has to be done too, right?

    I've seen a few instrument binicles on ebay for less than 100. Brand new as well.

    You'd still need to get them programed in tho, but its better than 500+

    My DIS is faded abit, but not so much to bother me yet.

    Cheers folks. Looks like I'll just switch it off in that case and spend the money on some ICE instead [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    A couple of vertical lines of pixels went blank for a few weeks a little while back, but could still see what the DIS was displaying. They appear to be working again now though! Wasn't going to fork out 500 for a couple of dodgy pixels.

    I'm pretty darn sure you could simply remove old display and put in new display. maybe need a hot air soldering station but if an electronics place charges 50/hour, it ain't going to take them longer than that to replace with the new ebay display!
