My son has mk5 (I think) year 2000 1.4L Polo. The speedometer started to work intermittently and now the needle simply sits at about the 140mph mark. After disconnecting and removing it for inspection (which told me very little) it reset itself and worked OK for a couple of days but the fault returned. I'm assuming it reset because it was effectively disconnected from the battery but I have not had the chance to repeat it yet. There are second hand instrument clusters on ebay for £20.00 but one of the adverts had this message "It will need to be coded to your vehicle using diagnostic equipment when fitting" is this true? The air bag light is also on permanently, could this be part of the same fault? I was hoping I could simply swap the cluster for another. My alternative solution is to give the cluster to Cartronix in Waterlooville for a £99.00 repair.
53 Plate 1.2 9n So I had a previous problem with my instrument cluster (LED's not working). I tried fixing it but like an idiot I forgot to disconnect the battery... LED exploded and everything stopped working. No lights come on and the displays are blank, it won't start either. I've ordered a new cluster but just wondering if it will be a straight swap or if i'll have to get it coded? Any help would be appreciated
Has anyone changed the colour of their instrument cluster on their 9n? If you have, I would like to know how easy/difficult it was, and if you have any pearls of wisdom for me? I shall be attempting this myself soon and was hoping for some insights!
Hi There trusty experts. Recently my Polo has developed another fault! I know such fun. Basically the back-light on the Fuel and Temperature gauge has failed, well it flickers slightly and still intermittently turns on. Photos weren't very clear so I made a few videos: 1: http://youtu.be/Xcy1jv89mLA 2: http://youtu.be/x2zapLUdrkY Its not got a fault code on VCDS and I have checked connectors in the back of the panel and all are secure. I'm assuming its a poor solder connection somewhere, I can solder so I'd be happy to try to repair it myself. The alternative is: http://www.clusterrepairsuk.co.uk/repair/model/vw-polo-9n-instrument-cluster-speedo-repair-service Any Ideas?
