I've got a problem with the gf's 2001 Audi A3. The instrument cluster is
completely dead first thing in the morning when the car is cold, but after
about 20 minutes of driving the whole thing pops into life. The car starts
up fine, its just that you're driving with a completely inert display.. no
speedo, fuel gauges, temp, clock etc..
I've taken out the cluster and checked that the connectors going into it
aren't loose and I've also replaced all the fuses relating to the instrument
panel but its still there. Today I called up Audi and they said it sounds
like it needs a new instrument cluster which will cost serious £££.
Any other hints?
