Default Trusted technician in So cal?

I have an 02 Jetta. The instrument cluster has a fried circuit that has rendered the fuel/temp gauge inactive. This means I can not get it to pass a drive cycle and therefor cannot smog my car.

I checked with the dealership...

To program a new instrument cluster (set mileage and stop the immobilizer problem) they want $495. If I acquire the instrument cluster on my own and they “can’t get it to work” I still owe the money. The part, through them is $695 while online, a used one is, at worst $150.

Anyone know of a Vw specialist in so cal (more specifically Ventura county?)

Any help would be very appreciated!

I don't know about someone in California but this guy has that kind of experience IIRC. He may be able to get your cluster repaired or get you a used one I would check with him.
