gauge cluster for an audi

717 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  AKADriver
my buddy's audi quattro coupe had its gauge cluster go out, so he's driving without a clue about what his engine speed or vehicle speed is. anybody here know where he can get a replacement gauge cluster set?
he found an S3 gauge cluster set for $800.
i hope he doesnt buy THAT.

try a junk yard or the audiworld classifieds.. sometimes they get junked.. or just get some big dummy lights and put them on his dash

Does it have the 1.8T engine in it? If so, chip it, and all your problems will be solved. It'll even feed the starving children in ethopia once chipped.
Did you/them check out to see if there's any stupid problems, like bad connectors, fuses, something that can be repiared for a lot cheaper than a new instrument cluster??

That's definitely a good idea, to check for stupid problems first. Make sure it's getting good power, good ground.
If it is and it still doesn't work, then replace it; but it shouldn't be that expensive. A gauge cluster at my local DIY junkyard is $25. No Quattro Coupes or 4000s there to pull the dash from, though.
