The odo is run by the main board. I doubt it is even remotely possible to make a NB odo work in a A4 golf/jetta.I knew the speedo face looked a bit different, but the odometer module looked to be the same, so I figured that it was made by the same company. Maybe Brian can figure out how to use that module with his car so it will keep counting?
I think it's both funny, and a testament to these cars, that this is even considered "a problem".G/J clusters are usually VDO, NB is usually Marelli (sp?) IIRC.
Interesting that we have folks working on a solution to how to make our odometers continue to read higher as the miles/km rack up. I have a ways to go as I just turned 386k miles this morning.
This is why I am looking for a 300td for my daughter for when she'll start driving! Mileage and tank built into 1.you should tell vw and maybe they'll put in in their museum one day. At least they may want to give you a better odometer that can count higher like this guys's 240D that got 4.6 million KM.
Did you try to read ECU millage?If I just do the coding to KM it's 999,999 under the adaptation channel it's 65535.
I can confirm this. I replaced my clutch today which means I had the battery disconnected overnight.From what I have gathered so far, it appears the application saves the odometer value to nonvolatile memory every 10 km. The 1 km position is counted in RAM and if I am correct, the odometer will revert to a multiple of 10 km each time the battery is disconnected.
Right now my unit has 26669 in the adaptation channel and is coded for miles (165714). I haven't seen any evidence that the distance is stored in nonvolatile memory in miles, at least for IMMO2 boards. I will have to take a look at my IMMO3 board later.
Yes they do. They also used only 2 bites in eeprom.Ah, I was hoping a simple byte change would let the odo count to 999,999 miles and reset.
Are non-immo clusters used in the 99.5 cars set up the the same limit of 999,999KM?
__. Yes, and if he'd bought a gasser that does ~32 MPG, (assuming that gasoline has been 6% less than diesel fuel since '03), he would have spent about $54,300 on gas. So, is the going price was about $20,000 in '03, he's gotten about 3/4 of a free car.The coolest thing about that is over 600,000 miles it likely used less than 13,800 gallons of fuel. $40,000 of diesel at today price.
NOPE, two bites can record 999999km.Two bytes can record only 65535km, so the old cluster should fail after just over 407215 miles.
