    Was auto-dimming instrument clusters a thing/option on B5.5 Passats or was that something modified because ever since I added the Auto Lights module and converted my cluster to white LEDs I have noticed that when I change ambient (from light to dark tunnel for instance) with the rheostat set to...

    My instrument cluster began malfunctioning recently, so I hooked up my vag-com to my car and ran the diagnostics. The first file is from after the instrument cluster started malfunctioning, the second one is the last time I ran diagnostics, about a month ago. It couldn’t connect to the...

    Hi, I have a 2000 Passat B5 1.8 Petrol, which currently has the MFA instrument cluster (i.e. the half height screen which displays distance travelled, time travelled, instant MPG, average MPG, average speed) which is backlit blue. Using VAGCOM I have determined it is part number: 3B0 920 922...

    2004 Passat TDi computer readout fades when weather gets hot. any DIYer out there that has repaired one of these? I understand it is a common problem and suspect that by now someone has a fix other than a $1000 replacement.

    Can I swap an instrument panel in a 1.9tdi B5 Passat, year - 2000? A quick read of threads suggests that I have to reprogram it for the immobilizer, which would be a pain as I don't have the code strip with the keys, so I'm guessing an expensive trip to the dealer would be needed. I'm asking...

    Hi, I have a 2001 B5.5 for a while and it came with this problem since I bought it: the electronic display on the cluster shows nothing, it's dead. And it's not dead like the mercury has vanished or something, it is really off/black. Of course I've pushed the reset button several times but...

    So after switching to a W8 cluster, my distance to empty is a little high because the W8 has a bigger tank than the GLX. I was wondering how I change this either in the EEPROM or using VCDS. Thank you for any help!
