Question about 1998 Audi A4
My LCD instrument display is malfunctioning.
When in park most of the display is showing but with some bits missing.
When in drive or reverse the entire display disappears.
I checked the fuses connected to the displays and they all ok.
However there is a wire under the grill that plugs into something and I can'y find a socket that it fits.
Any solutions to the LCD as if there is a problem I will not receive a warning.
This is a known issue on these cars - they get "pixellated" as it's called. It's a manufacturing defect that Audi has so far ignored and refused to take care of for its owners. The only real fix for it at this time is to replace the information display (big-time pain) or to replace the entire instrument cluster, which is costly and requires the cluster and ECU to be flashed to work together. Honestly the best bet is to just deal with it for now. A large number of A4 enthusiasts are petitioning Audi to take care of the repair, but although so far it hasn't borne fruit, they're keeping at it and are trying to get some results.
