Hi VW experts!

I have a '97 VW Cabrio and am currentely trying to keep it alive, while hopefully bringing it back to original(ish) condition.

I have a question regarding my instrument cluster.

The non-working aspects are the speedometer, tachometer, fuel, odometer and temperature. The clock still works and the light behind the clock and the odometer work, although it isn't counting my mileage.

It used to work periodically but has now stopped completely. Can anyone suggest anything? What should I check? What should I replace perhaps?

Thank you so much.

Lauren

Yep pull your cluster and check that no wires got jiggled loose or anything. If everything is fine then your cluster is faulty and needs to be replaced.

If the above do not work, take it apart and check the solder joints on the circuit board. I found several cracked ones on the 97 Jetta. A little solder and no more problems.
