I'm having some trouble with the dash of my '99 TT coupe. Since a couple of
months, the gauges of temperature and fuel are not displaying correct
anymore. When my engine is "hot" let's say 90°C, the gauge is displaying
120°C. When it's cold, it's displaying almost 90°C. The same thing with my
fuel gauge. When it reaches the 0 line (low on reserve thus), I can still
fill'ur up with only 40 liters and not the 55.
Since about 3 weeks I'm having another problem. The radio-controlled clock
antenna (meaning you receive signal from Frankfurt) is not showing anymore.
The clock of my wrist watch IS receiving signal on that moment. It has
already happened sometimes that the antenna-icon disappears for a moment,
but it has never been gone for such a long time like this before. In the
manual I've read that it switches to manual clock when it doesn't receive
for three (?) days, but how can I put it back to radio-controlled-reception?
It can't be stuck, does it?
What about the gauges problem? My dealer says this is normal and that I'll
have to replace the whole dashboad (about 600$). I can hardly believe this
is the only solution, a whole new dash for just one minor gauge problem??
Does anybody know some explanation please?
