Hi everyone,

I have over the past few days fitted a new dash (Half LCD MFD VDO VO3 dash pod) and cruise control to my 2007 T5. Fitting all went well, everything is in and mostly working. I managed to program in the CCS, learned the dashpod to the vehicle, coded the keys and all of that works fine and as it is supposed to. However, the dashpod won't accept the coding through VCDS to change the set up so now I keep getting emissions warnings because it thinks it is fitted to a 5-cylinder engine when mine is a 4, keeps telling me to change my brakes because theres no wear sensor fitted and telling me to top up my screen wash where there is also no sensor. Neither the CAN-gateway nor instrument cluster will accept any sort of coding change.

Has anybody else had problems like this before or does anybody know how to fix it? I have been talking to Vagnostics about it as they supplied me the kit but unfortunately we haven't had any luck so far, so short of taking the van to a VW specialist/to Vagnostics themselves, I'm stumped!

you need the correct upgraded body control module which will communicate with the new cluster.

Think it is supposed to end with 87 or 97.

I think you'll also need VAG Commander to change the mileage as well.

The guy who runs http://jplautomotive.co.uk/ has posted some pics of upgraded clusters, might be worth a call or message him on FB

Did you copy your soft coding off the old clocks? Normally theres a coding helper to help you chose the 4 cyl engine and things like washer bottle sensor etc

Hi,

thanks for the responses and apologies for the slow reply I had surgery at the weekend and hadn't been able to get back on the computer. Managed to suss the problem before my op luckily. I'd been using the same code as the one my old dash had but for some reason the new one wanted a different digit for the engine fitted. All running beautifully now :)
