    Digital clock and milage indicator

    Hi all. Done a bit of looking about cant cant come up with anything.
    i dont have vcds so cant scan for faults.
    Just recently i have noticed that the digital clock and trip milage/milage have gone off. Everything else works fine. It does light up just no digits shown. I have checked the fuses but all seems fine! Help as am at a loose end. Thanks

    Possibly a bad solder connection somewhere or the LCD screen has failed. Remove the cluster and open it up, check for dry joints or cracked joints and repair or buy a 2nd hand cheap set of clocks, either swap full clocks or remove the display you need.

    Would that cause both displays to fail? I had the radiator expension bottle off to clean it out and when it was put back together thats when it had gone off so thought it might have been something to do with that. By changing the clocks does that affect the Immobiliser etc as a few threds i read says they had to reprogrammed? Thanks

    VCDS should code it fine.

    I can't see how the radiator expansion cap would be related to it. It might be a dodgy connection then. Cluster is easy to remove. Use the search function and find the guide. Or look here: A4 avant electrical problem

    Could be plug not seated properly, bad joint and corrosion.
