    Hi,

    I'm pretty certain I should have the outside temperature displayed on my A3, but perhaps someone can confirm.

    The model is A3 SE 1.8 2001.

    I have no button under my right hand stalk, however, I do know that the previous owner replaced the stalk.

    On the right hand dash display I get the miles completed and total mileage display, on the left of the dash I get the time and date.
    I get nothing in the middle when driving.

    I have vcds, but can't find anything in there about it, then again I can't find nothing on ross-tech either.

    Any ideas? should I have temp reading?

    Thanks
    Danny

    Danny,

    Between the speedometer and rev counter dials, do you have a nearly full height black LED screen or is it only half height (a bit taller than the odometer with total miles)?

    Hi,

    Well now I think you're gonna tell me I can't have it because the dash is too old.
    It seems half of the rectangle is blanked out, like there is no screen in it.

    I can't seem to upload files today, so here is a link to the same dash.

    Thanks, but that doesn't seem to allow me to enter 5 digits, only 1?
