Thumbs up Cluster Still Good!!

So Marin said to send him my Cluster and he would diagnose it before I go and buy a new/ used one. My car was cranking over once and it would stop. I've sent Marin the Cluster from my 06 Jetta TDI. As soon as he received it. He was able to hook up and bench test it and the cluster would power up. The next thing he did he hooked it up to his car and it would power up and everything worked. So he suggested I checked the power/ ground/ 12v wire. Which he was able to provide what wires they were so I can check the wiring when I got the Cluster back from him. With his direction on where to test the wiring, my mechanic and I was able to figure out one of the fuse was plugged into the wrong slot. The cluster was not getting any power so the immobilizer wouldn't allow the car to keep running. He didn't charge me anything other than the shipping charge back to me. I did send additional funds to him but it was no where enough for the time he spent to help me out.
Marin is a Great Mechanic and I really trust that he will do the best he can to help you out!!
Thanks Marin. You're one of a kind!!. Now I just need to get good tunes so my 06 Jetta is not a Freight Train when I put the pedal to the metal .
By the way Marin, Can you do Custom tune for 06 Jetta TDI if I gave you all the upgrades I've done to my car??

Thanks,

Mike in Queen Creek, AZ

I have a 2006 jetta brm with an immbolizer issue, car will start for one second then shut off and the immbolizer light is blinking, how much to help me get it fixed? I am willing to ship you the cluster and key if needed to fix the issue.

Marin -

I'm emailing you this:

Saga of the 2014 JSW SEL TDI parking brake warning light and 5 minute LOUD warning chime (that resets every time I come to a complete stop, so no, I can't live with it) continues... Ok, after hours of analysis, ripping out the center console and front seat, VW of Palm Springs (great people and service, btw). Has ascertained that....
The problem is not the hand brake sensor, not the brake fluid sensor or the wiring... My instrument cluster must have a short or the board must be bad. Problem is, doesn't appear you can just disconnect the parking brake wire to the cluster because it's already getting the correct signal and still malfunctioning!
So, does anyone have a solution short of buying a new instrument cluster and re-coding it? (dealer did give a quote of $725 for parts & labor, but I don't want to spend that on a car w/143k miles on it, if I can avoid it). I'm stuck! Thanks...

Hi, Iím new here but wanted to thank the members of this forum and jetta ,97 (Marin) for helping me keep and fix my 2003 tdi Jetta. I knew my car needed some work on the suspension/bushings but I didnít know what exactly, so I reached out to Marin after I saw this thread, and asked if he was available to take a look and help me get a list of what I needed. We met up, and he gave me a very thorough list of what was ok still, and what wasnít which was great because some things I thought were bad (shocks) were still in fine shape. He said it could be done by Thursday night, and I got a call Wednesday afternoon saying he had already finished! New control arm bushings, strut mounts, sway bar bushings, lower ball joints, rear pads and rotors, both cooling fans , new transmission fluid, break fluid flush, and he even installed the shifter bushings I had gotten from DieselGeek . Needless to say, my car feels fantastic now. If you are in the Dallas area and need some work done, send jetta ,97 a message. It is very nice to know a mechanic who is knowledgeable, fast, and honest. Also the total bill was less than I expected which was great for helping me explain to my wife why I wanted to put a large chunk of money into a 17 year old car 😊


Thanks again Marin,



-Kyle

Sometime around the middle of April I'll be coming up I-35 from Laredo to Dallas, then east to Texarkana.

Looking to have my DSG fluid changed on my Passat and an idea of the cost.
