    Hello,

    I switched on the car this morning and this came up (please see picture attached). Would anyone know what is wrong?

    Previously I have had the error below:
    Address 17: Instruments Labels: 8P0-920-xxx-17-MY7.lbl
    Part No SW: 8P0 920 981 BX HW: 8P0 920 981 BX
    Component: KOMBIINSTR. VDO H80 0460
    Revision: D08 Serial number: 2258GD08000039
    Coding: 0000443
    Shop #: WSC 12435 123 12345
    VCID: 8F294C689E46CD1


    1 Fault Found:
    16346 - Control Module - ROM Error
    014 - Defective
    Freeze Frame:
    Fault Status: 00000011
    Fault Priority: 1

    Mileage: 107136 km
    Time Indication: 0
    Date: 2012.07.01
    Time: 11:50:59

    I am thinking it could be linked to this, but my DIS was working during this time (not fully, but
    intermittently).

    Please could anyone advise me on this problem.

    Thanks

    If your DIS was working intermittently then it might have been on its last legs. Looks like the ROM memory in the control module is faulty.

    Disconnect battery for 10 minutes & reconnect.

    Disconnected the battery, and it lights up now. However, i still am getting a blank screen with no information in it.

    Also have steering wheel and esp light on. I think these will go off later once i drive the car next? ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21361402134.523105.jpg

    Hi mate.

    The light with the picture of a steering wheel and the esp light is a 'steering angle sensor' fault. I bought my a3 and a few months after this issue occured. Audi fixed it for me free under the warranty but its about £200 to get sorted by a decent garage.

    Having it plugged in by someone will trll you its that fault straight away

    Hello, both lights have now cleared after my drive to work.

    Thanks for your help guys. I still think I need a new DIS as I do have a ROM error. I might have to go for the white dis cluster.

    On a separate note, are these meant to have a black line running through the top 1/4 of the DIS display?
