    Instrument Cluster Problems ..

    Has anyone else noticed that sometimes (I mean maybe once a week) that when starting the car, the cluster stays 'off' until a few seconds after the engine has started?

    Ie - all dials and displays dont wake up as the engine is starting?

    My car already had a new cluster fitted by Audi (shown by the X in my PN and its logged in the service book)

    Code:
    Address 17: Instruments        Labels: 8P0-920-xxx-17-MY8.clb
       Part No SW: 8P0 920 982 CX    HW: 8P0 920 982 CX
       Component: KOMBIINSTR. VDO H20 0860  
       Revision: D0H20008    Serial number: 2254K008000078
       Coding: 0004428
       Shop #: WSC 00899 210 85177
       VCID: 912229C0F1EF
    
    No fault code found.

    Chris, I think that your best option is to take it back to Audi where they installed the new cluster. Ask them to explain why this is happening.

    Thats strange, you would expect at least an intermittent loss of power fault. Should the car even start with no power? if the immo is in the cluster surely an immo blocked engine start would occur. Did they mess around with the immo to fit the clocks or is the immo in a seperate module on this car?

    I forgot to add - all lights come on as usual when the ignition is turned on, its only after the engine has started nothing comes on albeit a few seconds later.

    It was a whole new cluster they fitted, I think it was back in 2010 if I recall reading the history right.

    It only does this intermittently and every time it does happen, I never have my camera at hand!

    I'll inquire about this at the next service (12k miles) which is about 1.5 months away.
