VW Golf mk3 Secret Tachometer Tutorial

This video shows how to get to the secret digital tachometer (RPM gauge), and how it works :) 1= Distance Impulse number - the number of speedo sender pulses required to +1 the odometer. for miles the number is in the 6000 range, for kilometers the number is in the 3000 range. 2 = Clock display mode - 1: Europe (24 hour time) 2: Canada? 3. UK (12 hour) 4. USA (12 hour) 5. South Africa? 3 = Speedometer and rev. counter code 4 = number of cylinders, or ratio for alternator/engine revolutions. (for tach calibration) 5 = Segment test (lights all LCD segments) 6 = Speedomenter sender impulses - each wheel revolution adds 7 to this count. 8 = program version Thanks to oxytrue for info :) Also, some people has reported that it does not work on some diesel models.

Volkswagen MK3 digital tachometer trick tutorial
Saw the other videos on here and wanted to post a very straightforward one of my own. Step 1: turn key to on position (accessories, not engine). Step 2: press and HOLD odometer's button (the one that switches between "trip"and "total"). Step 3: while still holding the odometer button, turn the key to the off position. Step 4: still holding the button, turn the key fully and start the car. [at this point you can let go of the button. Press it a few times to get the display to "7" and there you have it!]
