I just installed ABD Silver Gauge faces. Being stupid I turned on the car with out the gauges plugged in. Now my car has a hard time starting, and when it does start it dies right away, even when you give it gas. WHAT DID I DO??? How do I fix????

Well..... Try this as a quick fix. Unplug the Negative wire for 10-15 min to reset the ECU. If that doesn't work then you might need a Vag-Com to see what's up.

I thought they don't start w/out the guages plugged in...I don't know what is wrong, but the resetting the ecu sounds like a very good start

Tried the battey thing no luck. Went out and bought a ACTRON OBD2 Autoscanner. Says it wont link. All the dash lights come on and everything. The only problem is that it wont stay running. Any other ideas???


PS I will post pics as soon as I fix the car.
