MKIV VW Jetta Golf Multi Function Indicator in Gauge Cluster

Posted this due to some demand from people wondering about this somewhat rare option. Properly known as the Multi-Funktions Anzeige or MFA, this came on GTI, GLI and GLX models. The winshield wiper stalk is used to toggle between the 5 modes. The button on the bottom of the stalk toggles between the "1" (saved current trip) and "2" (saved overall trip). In the video, the displays are as follows: 1: real-time MPG readout. 2: minutes spent in car. 1 is minutes since I entered the car, and 2 is since I reset the thing at the gas station 5 minutes after starting. 3: average speed travelled. 2 is higher than 1 since I travelled nothing but highway after filling up my car 4: miles traveled. I traveled 1 mile to get to the gas station hence the discrepency 5: average MPG 6: back to the real-time readout. I gunned the VR6 to lower the MPG then I popped it into neutral to make the MPG go up to 199 (the max it will display). If you cruise down in gear it just displays "-- --" until you give it gas again, but if its in neutral it will display much higher MPG's which can throw off the average MPG readouts if you do it too much. Apparently you can simply swap gauge clusters with one of these if you want to add this in your GL or GLS model, however I would think you'd need the wiper stalk also since it has the buttons that control the display.

Disabling Traction Control
So I made this video to demonstrate how to disable traction control on my MK4 2001 Jetta 1.8t. My car did not come with the traction control button, commonly known as ASR/ESP button. Do this at your own risk. I do not know if this works on any other VW car, motor, or otherwise. I do know it does work on mine. www.vwvortex.com
