    I dont know if this helps but it seems from my experiance with my A-6 that a LOT of electronic systemsn in the A-6 are inter-related. Our Power seat shorted out, disabling the power windows and the interior lights, as well as making the dash go haywire.

    A simple malfunction in these cars seems to throw the entire car into a spin.

    Did you just remove the original cluster and replace it with the new one? I heard that Audi needed to do something to code the new cluster to the car otherwise it wouldn't start (I'm asking as I might be doing something similar to my S3 soon).

    car going into garage to have it done next weekend will let you know how i got on,

    and yes i think the imobiliser has something to do with the replacement clocks as my car wont start with the new clocks till the mechanic reprograms the new clocks for me
