Question about Cars & Trucks
After the battery died the dash stop working a friend had locked the door also with the key and it wouldn't start. now it starts but it doesn't display the dash nor does the gauges work. Please help?
Have you checked all of the fuses to see if they have power ?
There should be a 20amp fuse for gauges that comes to mind.

You need to seek out a mechanic who specializes in VWs and he will put the car on a machine to check out the entire computer system. Iknow this is probabaly not what any of us like to do, but sometimes you can have a really good mechanic who is an independent work on your car. check his references and prior employment history and it should cost you much less than a dealership shop.

I would start by scanning the engine control module and the body control module and the antilock brake control module and the transmission control module and the airbag module to see if there are any fault codes that indicate a loss of power to the modules. It may tell me which circuit malfunctioned. If that does not give me a clue, I would then start to diagnose the window circuits by first checking for power at the master switch and move to the rest of the power window system from there.
As for fuses or where to start...I think you should probably read these articles before doing anything:

Tips for a great answer:
CTD system, the RIM commands the instrument cluster to control the indicator only when the ignition switch is OFF.
PASS-Key?® III System The PASS-Key?® III system is designed to help prevent vehicle theft by disabling the engine unless an ignition key with a specific electrical value is used in the ignition lock cylinder. The PASS-Key?® III system operates independently of the CTD system. Protection is provided even if the CTD system is not armed. The components of the system are the ignition keys (black or gray), ignition lock cylinder, Theft Deterrent (VTD) module, Reader Exciter, Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and two starter relays (START 1 and 2) in the underhood fuse block.
