    Clocks/immo2

    I have just got some S4 clocks(98/98),they physically fit my car and all the plugs are the same and everything functions apart from the obvious the car wont start,i was just going to swap the faces/needles onto my old clocks but it would put the speedo out by about 5mph so How and where do i go about getting the clocks coded to my car ??

    Did you make a note of your old soft code? As you will this to code onto the S4 clocks with VAGcom. Then log into Instruments, then adapt IIRC read, then save, immo light will go out. Turn ignition off then back on and away

    Umm, Mark that wont work unless you happen to have the matching keys for the S4 dash.....

    The keys are matched to the immo unit, and the immo unit is then matched to the engine ECU. That procedure is only if you've changed the engine ECU. If you've changed the immo part the keys arent known to the immo box, so you wont go anywhere.

    What you need to do, is dig the SKC code out of the new dashboard using Vagtacho, then use that SKC code to code the new dash to your keys and then your ECU.

    There was a post on here by one of the chaps that did just the same thing, using an S4 clock set into a 1.8T iirc.

    Have a search for it.

    ive got perfect working s4 cluster in mine, as already said you need 4 digit skc to code in keys (if using vagcom), and softcode from old clocks to convert them to work in a 4 cylinder although its easy enough to work out with info on ross tech/vagcom site
