    Thank you for that answer.

    Yes at Startup i do get the normal Lights Oil etc then all go out after a few Secs!

    Thought it had to stay lit for some other thigs,as my other VW 2003 Model has the Panel Lit all the time showing various things! Like Trip Milage,Outside Temp,etc!

I have a golf mk 4 2.0 gti. i fitted a new speedometre and now it wont start, why is this?

The code is printed on a label behind your new instrument cluster. Since your instrument cluster is new and immobilizer control module is housed in it, it needs to shake hands with your existing ECU to be recognized. A VAG 1551/1552 scan tool or equivalent (ROSS-Tech) PC base application is needed in order to recognize the new hardware. All of your existing keys will be needed as well so it could be matched with the new code from your instrument cluster. As of now a warning indicator with a key icon is showing due to non recognition thus activating the anti-theft feature of your vehicle. Remember there is a procedure to do this right so click on ROSS-Tech for this information. You can buy the program from them too if you have a non Apple lap top and discover how easy it is working on your car. If you want the VAG 1552 384f7c3.jpgit's going to cost you $1200 (that's how much I paid in 2000 for mine). You can get it and all official VW tools from Zelenda Tools.

No need to go to VW, most garages have the ability to read live data. From your fault description it could be the water sensor for the ECU located where the top hose meets the engine, a 4 wire sensor, cheap to replace at around £10, deffinitely worth a punt.
Where in UK are you, I will see if I can help further.
