I wanted to recode my instrument cluster for seatbelt warnings so i jotted down the code which was - 05442
and changed it to - 07444
going by rosstech -
Recode for warning lamps (through 1999 only):
[17 - Instruments]
[Recode - 07]
Write down the existing coding for future reference.
Enter 5-digit code from below
Look at the first two digits in the coding. Add the values for the options together to get the correct coding.
00 - No available equipment
+01 - Brakepad wear sensor warning active
+02 - Seatbelt warning active
+04 - Washer fluid level warning active (may only work with pre-2000 models)
+16 - Navigation System (non-USA models)
Look at the third digit in the coding (Market version):
0 - "Germany" 24 hour clock
1 - "Rest of World" 24 hour clock
2 - "USA" 12 hour clock
3 - "Canada" 12 hour clock
Look at the fourth digit in the coding (Cylinders):
4 - 4-cylinder
6 - 6-cylinder
Look at the fifth digit in the coding (Distance impulse multiplier):
0 - TDI Engine (non-USA models)
2 - Non-turbo Gasoline engine
4 - Turbocharged engine
mine was originally coded for brake pad warning & low washer fluid which would be 05 (first two so i wanted to add seatbelt warning so changed it to 07)
next was market version digit 3 which was set to 4 ?? Theres no 4 mentioned on rosstech and i have analog clock what do i set it too ??
4th digit was right (4 cyl)
5th digit was set as 2 (non turbo petrol) ?? So i changed it too 4. Now i have no seatbelt warning coming on and pads are new and washers are full so can my 1999 TQS acomadate seatbelt warnings or is the market version causing this.
any ideas answers ??
and i only want seatbelt warnings as we have just found out there will be a new addition in 9 months and she has a habit of not wearing it lol
