fitting new instrument cluster
hope some one can help, i have a 99 b5 a4 2.5tdi, just bought brand new instrument cluster from ebay to fix dis screen
i have the 4 digit skc code for the original cluster and vag-com dongle
first which type of immobilizer do i have?
second do i have to go to audi to have them fitted?
vag-com info seems to suggest a 7 digit skc code has to be generated does that mean new clocks do not actually have any codes already in them?
it also claims there is no other way to read skc other than with dealer tool, but i had keys coded into my other car by a local auto locksmith who read skc code with hand held device, would he be able to read new clocks? he read 4 digit number, vag-com info suggests i need a 7 digit number to fit them or is that if i cant get 4 digit one?
any help/info on this would be greatly appreciated, has anyone had cluster replaced by dealer? quoted £458 for exchange cluster from audi, paid £90 ish on ebay
