Instrument Cluster Swapping

Prerequisites:

  • The Coding from the OLD (ORIGINAL) cluster has been saved.
  • The REPLACEMENT (NEW or USED) cluster is installed in the car.
  • Battery voltage at least 12.0 V.
  • All relevant coding and adaptation values have been transferred from the OLD (ORIGINAL) cluster to the REPLACEMENT (NEW or USED) cluster.
  • Make sure to have the PIN for the REPLACEMENT (NEW or USED) instrument cluster.
  • Make sure to have the Radio Code (for factory radios only).

Additional Adaptation Channels may be needed for SRI and the Internal Installation List of installed modules.

  • The Internal Installation List channels are generally 060, 061 and 062 when applicable.
  • The SRI channels vary by cluster. The automated SRI Reset feature of VCDS can be used to check the settings.


Matching the Cluster to the Engine ECU

[Select]

[Read]
[Save]
[Done, Go Back]
[Close Controller, Go Back - 06]
Switch ignition Off and then back On within one minute, but do not start vehicle.

Notes: On some Euro Audi models with Immobilizer II, a PIN will be required.


Proceed with Key Matching (through Instrument Cluster) now.
