Default Re: MFA Cluster Conversion Installation Information

OK Ready for this Jarods cluster is now working in my Jetta.
I believe I know what the problem is. Some of the clusters are
coming in ALREADY LOCKED, I know I did the first one right
from the start but the code would not take so I played and played
and it finally took the code, but in the process messed up the interface
with the ECU Motor codes.
Follow these instructions to the T for cars with (w) on the key. Most 2000 2001
Install cluster and get 7 digit code, date of code, dealer WSC and importer code
Go to 17 instruments
When opened next go to 11 log on
Do 7 digit code, page will open put in the 7 digit code wsc and importer number
Make sure date in day 7 digit was generated.
Press enter with your mouse
Leave key turned on, put charger on battery and let the car set for FULL 255 min
I let mine set for 4.5 hrs. This should reset the cluster. IT will not reset with the
Key off I tried.
Now turn vagcom back on go to 17 then 11 log on it should now load the code.
if logged in now go to #10 adaptation screen opens you will see two 00 highlighted
hit 21 on the computer which lets you code the keys the lower left number most likely 3 is the one you want clear it out retype 3 into block hit test , save , adapt keys per instruction PTC posted
once keys are done DO NOT START CAR
go back to 17 instruments log back in go to 11 adaptation the same 00 should be highlighted delete put in 00 save turn off car FOR LESS THEN 60 Seconds turn car
back on DO NOT START CAR FOR 2 min, I went 3 to be safe. Start car all should be good.
NOTE these are the same instructions posted by PTC the only difference is letting the car set for 4.5 hrs with the key on the very first time the code does not take.
DO NOT clear fault until everything else is done.
DO NOT code the software. DO all the step as PTC POSTED After you get the code in.
