    Fitting wiper stalk with DIS

    I was hoping someone may say that. So just plug and play?

    should be yes, as you already have dis installed but wait until someone else confirms it

    It will need to be coded with VCDS mate.


    Also as you do not have the washer level sensor, a warning will be thrown up on your DIS to say washer level low. Now there are two options to take, most take the 2nd option as it is cheaper and can live without the sensor as they never had it in the first place.


    1. Order new bottle and sensor and install.
    or
    2. Splice in to Pin 1 in the connector behind the instrument cluster, the one to the right if you are looking up from the footwell. You will then need to ground the other end if the wire. Job done, no warning!


    Now to do the install of the stalk, if you have ever fitted cruise, then follow the exact same procedure apart from the coding at the end.
    I suggest if you don't have cruise and have the MFSW, then you will have the correct module for cruise, so install all at the same time.


    PM your email address and i will send you a guide. there use to be one about on thd net but i cant seem to find it.

    Just a suggestion, but if your near London, I could fit both for you.

    I haven't got cruise as of yet but it's on my list, but I got the wiper stalk dirt cheap. I have vcds myself do can I just program the water level error out rather than doing option 2?

    I'll pm you email addy for instructions. Really appreciate that.

    Cheers

    Have emailed you mate.

    Just go for option 2, ground pin1 of the blue connector behind the cluster. You will find there is already a wire in pin1, so with an additional bit of wire, just splice into it and solder and ground the other end. If you dont have a soldering iron then a scoth lock will do.

    Simon, for the cuise parts cost, roughly around the £60 mark, then you should do it, otherwise you will just be repeating the same process. You may as well kill two birds with one stone.
    This saying if you have a MFSW as you will have the correct steering module for cruise.

    Keep this thread updated on how you get on fella.

    Good luck

    I have just completed DIS and cruise on my A4 1.9TDI. I found it easier to ground pin 1 of the instruments connector at the other end, ie where it terminates. (saves having to remove instruments)
    This wire is in the passenger side footwell behind A post plastic trim.
    Look for the black 14 pin connector and earth the wire which is at pin 9.

    No need to remove instrument cluster, just remove blue plug so you have some slack, splice into wire from pin1, ground to a bolt on the chassis. Job done, 5-10 mins max.

    Lol, did not even look at that method, I read factory wiring diagram prior to installation and thought the footwell area was easiest option, also no more than 10 mins. More than one way to skin a cat as they say ;-)

    Remember Simon, for cruise, you must have a MFSW or DSG wheel in order to determine you have the right Steering control module to accept cruise. If you have neither, then you will possibly need a new one which are around the £160 new.
    I do have a used one if needed.

    You will need a new lower cowling to accommodate the cruise stalk.

    I know, most modules on eBay are £80+ this breaker has loads of modules all the the same price, mainly R and S modules. I was looking every day for a cruise module to come up u. Went on, click most recent and two popped up listed 10 mins ago. I snapped one up and within 20mins the other had sold aswell lol both on buy it now for £25 delivered with stalks

    Hi all,

    So I have just retrofitted DIS and cruise control and all is working as it should, I just need to ground the wire to stop the washer bottle empty warning appearing.

    I removed the blue plug from the intstrument cluster and there is already a wire in pin 1 as expected. So as I read it, most people just splice into this wire and then ground the other end?

    I was wondering though, where does this wire go, would it already be routed into the engine bay and be an easy job to fit the washer sensor? I havent had chance to try and trace where the wire goes yet, just wondered if anyone knew?

    Fitting wiper stalk with DIS

    I haven't got mfsw but could be tempted with one as I want to install dis and possibly cruise. Could someone please list the part numbers of the correct modules

    Thank you

    This link has details of what different steering wheel modules support:-

    You would need a midline or highline part to support mfsw & cruise.

    Yes mate, splice into wire from pin 1, then the other end you just need to ground to the chassis, so just wrap the wire around a bolt. There is one to the left of the steering column.

    Just purchased this, 2005 AUDI A4 2.0 TURBO WIPER & INDICATOR STALK, CRUISE CONTROL 4E0953503B | eBay which I assume is correct for mfsw and cruise. And i ordered an Avant stalk as the one included is for a saloon. (so will have a spare saloon stalk if anyone's interested). Also this wheel AUDI 2008 A4 B7 S LINE SPECIAL EDITION STEERING WHEEL WITH 2 TONE GREY LEATHER | eBay which looks the same as mine just with multi function. So hoping the airbag is the same??? When fitting do you have to use vagcom at the same time? Or can I have the parts fitted the coded a few days later? Thanks

    I did my DIS stalk yesterday and the only thing that was a little fiddly was splicing into the wire at the back of the cluster or at least it was for me being over 6ft upside down in the footwell with the clutch pedal against my head lol!!

    I've got a DIS stalk and cruise ordered up for mine at the moment, should all arrive any day now.

    I'm just wondering though - how much more cost / effort is it to go the whole hog and do it properly with the washer sensor fitted?

    I'm guessing that seeing as most folk seem to just bypass it then its either costly or fiddly or just not worth the effort......??

    I fitted mine and drove around for about 4 days without any problems, Ive read that some cars the ESP doesnt work until you code it, but not the case with mine!

    I dont think its expensive for the parts, around £17 I read on another thread somewhere. Its passing a wire through the bulkhead to the washer bottle that I would think is the fiddly bit.

    I always carry a small bottle of washer fluid in the car anyway and my "sensor" is when I pull on the stalk and nothing comes out!!

    Just ordered my cruise stalk and trim, so I'm hoping this is even easier than the dis stalk because I don't need to do any wiring just programming.

    I did exactly the same on the stalk lol!! I wondered why it was so cheap. Once u have right parts it's easy mate. Just make sure your clutch switch (common problem) is working.

    Hi all, if I fit the cruise switch and DIS stalk this weekend will my car still work ok until I can get the new parts coded in?

    Just thinking that you can't fit new bits as it may disable something on the car until it's coded

    Thanks

    Si
