Golf V GTi - Instrument Cluster

Post by TDi Tuned » Wed Jan 24, 2018 8:48 am

Hi Guys

I have a 2007 model G5 GTi. 2 weeks ago while driving (normal, not hard driving) the instrument cluster went completely dead (all gauges, time and display) for less than 5 seconds and then came back on. When it came back on every single warning light flickered and the cluster beeped a few times. After a second or 2 all warning lights went off besides the airbag warning.
The car has been scanned, I am at work and will put the scan details up later. Almost every module showed a fault which related to
"Instrument Cluster (J285) - no communication"
I cleared all DTC's and the issue went away but resurfaced again yesterday. Other than the above the car is perfect no other symptoms.

Please can anyone who experienced anything similar let me know.
