    A4 TQS Non runner. Please advise.

    Hey guys, I got major issues with my car, It started with the turbo siezing up but now after being parked up it's turned into a REAL headache...

    When you start the car NONE of the dash works, needles, central display, backlighting, nothing. Then after about 2-3 seconds the engine just cuts out.

    I borrowed the scanner from work to try but it won't communicate with the ecu at all, and yes i've tried Vagcom too.

    I need to sell the car but as it won't run it's dead on my drive...


    HELP!?

    The engine immobiliser is in the dash cluster, so it makes sense that the car would cut out if the dash is broken. I doubt theres anything wrong with the engine.

    Similarly, the engine ECU communicates with the diag socket VIA the cluster, so again, if the cluster is dead you'll get no diag.

    Check the fuses for the cluster.

    Seeing the dash is dead, i would say it's a fuse or similar, as your immo is in the dash, no power=non runner

    Siezed turbo = lack of oil pressure normaly due to sludge BTW

    Cheers guys. First port of call was fuses but they're all ok. New clocks it is then... :-( Or are they fixable?
