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.
Volkswagen Jetta Driver's Door Panel How To Remove 99 to 05
Learn how to take your door panel off the right way! You might need to
install speakers, fix an inner or outer door handle, replace the power
window motor or power door lock. If you need to do one of these things on a
MKIV Jetta (1999 to 2005) than we've created this video for you. As usual
Mark has viewed the existing videos and made an improved version for the
"How To DIY" group.
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.

VW Golf 4 MKIV temperature error - [Solved]
Regarding my Volksvagon Golf MK4 from 1999.
I have a temperature error. Even after a 30 km ride, the in dash
thermometer shows only 60-70 degrees, even though i should be hotter. If I
turn the motor off, and put the ignition back on, the reading increases.
Usually to around the expected 90 degrees, but in this video only 80
I have checked the coolant and there are plenty. The temperature gauge have
just been replaced, The old one did exactly the same (the reason i changed
it) but the guage was apparently not the issue. Apart from this, the car is
running as it should be, but I would like a trustworthy temperatur reading.
Any help on how to fix this, would be highly appreciated.
B5.5 VW Passat FIS Cluster Upgrade
First and foremost, these clusters are pretty rare in the United States.
Yes, I know your European Diesel VW or whatever came with this stock, but
ours didn't. This video is for my fellow Vee-Dubbers here in the states, if
you don't live here, you probably won't care.
I finished installing and adapting my European "Fahrer Information System"
in my 2001Â½ Passat B5.5. Here's a quick glance at some new features.

09 VW Jetta TDI DSG Failed Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF)
2009 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen TDI with 6-speed automated manual DSG
transmission. Knocking sound when in park. CONFIRMED at VW dealership that
it is indeed a failed DMF (Dual Mass Flywheel). $2083 + tax & shop fee's is
the estimate to replace. Car has high mileage (125k) and apparently the DMF
wears out with mileage & use, something VW doesn't tell you when you buy
these cars. Not changing your DSG fluid at regular 40k intervals speeds up
the process of the DMF failing. If ignored, the DMF will destroy your
transmission when it decides to give way costing you even more money.
