Hy, my client has a Vw Passat TDI, engine code AVB make 2002. The problem is the fallowing: the car's instrument cluster is not working. The clock and the odometer screen is blank, battery voltage is 12.5 v, when i turn the ignition key nothing happens, only appears the battery and the esp logo.
I checked with vag-com, only with the abs controler can i made the connection. At chanell 01 (engine) and 17 (instruments) the vag-com says "no response from controller"
From chanell 03 i read out the following error code:
01317 - Control Module in Instrument Cluster (J285)
49-00 - No Communications
What i have done is the checking of all fuses, i removed the instrument cluster and on the blue connector i checked the voltage on the 1+7, 1+9, 1+24, 23+7, 23+9, 23+24 pins. The measured value was battery voltage or less with aprox. 1 volt. I think that the instrument cluster gots the voltage.
What is your opinion?
Thanks for view.
