    I have received so much free help on this forum and members have extended their friendship without ever a meeting or handshake. If I ever discovered a new DIY, I would never think of making money from the forum members. This is exactly why I visit this forum as no one wants to profit but only to help

    Me also, here's my thanks to NHN for starting this thread. Not only did he have the guts to just give it a go but he shared the information.

    Want a Audi in Lisbon, which will target cluster? I'll get you.

    Once in England paid £ 100 meteres and little to the actual milles.

    It's a link from the first page and it's the faults that come up when swapping the clusters so tell me exactly why it has nothing to do with the cluster thread?

    fair enough, that link is to a ross-tech wiki that explains how to reset and remove the warning lights with the use of VCDS. its just a simple procedure that you need to follow which makes much more sense when you are going through it while working on the car...

    I'm trying to follow it through but running into problems at the first hurdle, whenever I try to access channel 009: steering angle sensor it gives me an error saying that the channel isn't available. Iv done everything else on the guide but it's the ESP and steering errors remain. Can anybody advise if they could access this channel?

    Im following through the ross tech guide you posted up to get rid of the ESP and steering faults, the first step in the guide is to go into address 44: channel 009 and set the steering angle sensor.

    Or have I totally miss understood this? It's been a long day ad things are going from bad to worse...

    First page mate, it's the link you put up. I was just following that through as best as I could? Should I be doing that? I'm confused :)

    Join the club lol
    I've got the same issue. The powersteering module lost the coding.
    You just need to code it again. Not a very easy task, but doable.

    Cheers.

    Well iv spent most of the night searching through forums and I always seem to end back at the same method of recoding. I must be doing something wrong when I'm doing it.

    Have you got yours sorted?

    What year is your car?
    Have you tried doing a basic settings reset on the abs module first as you may find that sorts out your issue

    It's a 2007/57 mate, il give that a try, didn't go into the abs module itself that might sort it.

    Just a bit concerned that I coudnt access the steering angle sensor on the adaptation menu, it's definitely working because I checked it in the live monitoring and it correctly displays the steering angle

    Ok lets start again cause we're going in circles & nothing added is helping you is it, Quinni what did you change on the car leading upto requiring the angle sensor to be calibrated.

    TBH this thread is becoming fragmented with all kinds of shxt & I for one dont want that, start a new thread for your issues or ideas on changing led colours etc, dont post random **** thats not even relevant to the original thread reason, this thread was purely about fitting the white dis cluster to any 8P.

    I have read this post through from post 1 to 667, please as Nigel and others have said, any issue that doesnt relate to the original post, please open another thread as its becoming very confusing and off the original op's topic in here. Thanks. :) x

    For the 'not belivers'

    S3 cluster on! E :-D | Facebook

    The power steering module lost it's coding... on VCDS only shows 00000 on the coding.
    Any chance you guys happen to have the correct codimg for the 8P?

    cheers

    Got it sorted mate, sorry for messing up the thread just thought it was related as the issue occurred because of the cluster swap. Just got an abs light on now and need an area the size of an airfield to do the test to knock the light off!

    With respect, you come on the thread, say you have an issue, dont advise tbh what caused the issue initially & then dont even advise what was the fix, not very helpful tbh mate, sorry to say.

    Can I just ask 1st, were your issues the result of fitting a white dis cluster, as its not very clear what happened with your car.

    I have a 1st facelift 8P pre 11/04 with the older fuel pump. It's a 53 plate and I'm thinking of doing this cluster swap.

    Can anybody tell me what fuel pump I'll need and the part number ? As I don't have
    Elsawin to check what pump I need.

    Yeh Audi will code it no problem. I just need the part number for the fuel pump as I'll get no fuel gauge as you indicated on this thread.

    I've also checked for that extra wire behind the cluster and I don't seem to have it.
