Question about 2000 Audi A4

1 Answer

Message panel unreadable I bought a used cluster.

I bought a used 2000 Audi A4cluster because my message panel was not readable.
Everything except the tach works. The tach reads about 33.3333% to high. I believe it was set up for a 4cyl car and I have a 6cyl. Can that be resolved?
Thanks,Stocky

Yes, but you need a VAS or VAG-COM diagnosis scantool. Yours instrument cluster must be encoded according yours car, with this VAS or VAG-COM tool, because the car have an electronic immobilizer! You need also key's programming! You must know the old and the new (second-hand) instrument cluster pin codes! After that the instrument cluster coding adjusts the various combination of the on board computer according to engine type, cylinder count and country version!

  • The message center is not operating correctly (base instrument cluster)
  • Instrument cluster
  • OBSERVE the operation of the message center when pressing the TRIP/SELECT button. Does the message center display change when the TRIP/SELECT button is pressed?
    • If the message center display changes, the system is operating normally at this time.
    • If the message center display does not change, INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 . TEST the system for normal operation.

Service 4wd bad accelerator


Hi there:
The FDCM has a code, and for me to be able to correctly diagnose your vehicle..You will need to get that code retrieved by a scantool.\.

The service 4WD indicator gives an indication to the vehicle operator when the Final Drive Control Module (FDCM) has recorded a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) for an electronic transfer case circuit or component malfunction. This indicator is controlled by the instrument cluster logic circuit based upon cluster programming and electronic messages received by the cluster from the FDCM over the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus.

The service 4WD indicator function of the reconfigurable dot matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display unit is completely controlled by the instrument cluster logic circuit, and that logic will only allow this indicator to operate when the instrument cluster receives a battery current input on the fused ignition switch output (run-start) circuit. Therefore, the OLED service 4WD indication will always be OFF when the ignition switch is in any position except ON or START. The instrument cluster will turn ON the service 4WD indicator for the following reasons:

Service 4WD Indicator Lamp-On Message - Each time the cluster receives an electronic service 4WD indicator lamp-ON message from the FDCM, the service 4WD indicator will be illuminated. The indicator remains illuminated for about five seconds, until the cluster receives a lamp-OFF message from the FDCM, until the cluster arbitrator logic determines that another display request has priority, or until the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position, whichever occurs first.

The FDCM continually monitors the electronic transfer case control circuits and transfer case shift motor/mode sensor assembly to determine the condition of the system. The FDCM then sends the proper lamp-ON or lamp-OFF message to the instrument cluster, also known as the Cab Compartment Node (CCN).

For proper diagnosis of the FDCM, the CCN, the CAN data bus or the electronic communication related to service 4WD indicator operation a diagnostic scan tool is required. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Oil Life Reset


Put the key in the ignition, and turn it on (don't crank the engine) while holding out on the small instrument cluster stalk near the clock. When the key is turned on, keep holding this stalk out, and push and release the other one (the one on the right). This should turn the "oil service" message to "----". Turn off the key and then release the left stalk. When you turn the car back on, the message should be gone.

Wont start my odometer blinks and says no bus


From the official Durango shop manual......(abbreviated)

Self Diagnosis Test

Vehicle key position is OFF ,or able to pull key out.
Hold in the trip odometer button (dont release yet)
Turn key to the ON position (one notch), but DON'T try to start the engine
Continue holding the trip button for about 10-12 seconds until CHEC appears in the odometer display
Release the trip button.
Series of three digit numeric failure codes may appear.
If no failure message appears, the self diagnostic test will proceed as described in step 6


Code Chart

110- cluster CPU,RAM,EEPROm failure, replace cluster

900-CCD data bus not operational, check CCD data bus connections at cluster, check the cluster fuses,check the CCD data bus bias, cehck the CCD data bus voltage, check the CCD data bus terminations.

920-cluster is not recieving a vehicle speed message from the PCM, check PCM software level and reflash if required, use the ($2500+) DRBIII scan tool to verify the vehicle speed message is being sent by the PCM

921-the cluster is not recieveing a distance pulse message from PCM,check PCM software level and reflash if required, use the ($2500+) DRBIII scan tool to verify the distance pulse message is being sent by the PCM

940-the cluster is not recieving an airbag lamp-on message from the ACM, check the CCD data bus connections at the ACM, check the ACM fuse.

950-cluster not recieving an ABS lamp-on message from the CAB, check CCD data bus connections at the ACM, check the ACM fuse.

960- clsuter not recieving a PRND21 message from the TCM, check the CCD data bus connections at the TCM, check the TCM fuse.

999-An error has been discovered, record the failure message, depress the trip odometer reset button to continue the Self-Diagnostic Test

Step 6
Instrument cluster will test each segment of the odometer (all first, then each one seperately)

Step 7
Bulb test

Step 8
Gauge test

Step 9
test completed

The instrument cluster will return to normal operation at the completion of test, if ignition switch turned off, or a vehicle speed message indicating movement recieved from the PCM on the CCD data bus.

Hope that help you or anyone else in future.
