Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 1996 vw jetta that i pulled dashboard out and replaced the heater core. When i put it all back together the instrument cluster worked for a minute then the gauges stopped working but the digital odometer and clock work. The gauge lights flickered but when i tapped the pod they came on and stayed. I think i might have dropped the cluster pod when pulling it out but it didn't drop that far, and i don't know if theres a fuse and if there is i don't know it's location or dropping it damaged it.
Take out the pc board and examine the copper traces. On my '94 Jetta I found one corroded trace that disabled the the same functions. I had to solder a wire to fix the connection. Good luck.
