Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The instrument cluster goes on the blink and doesn't work efficiently. Since it provides false readings, the operator has to gauge speed, fuel capacity, and deal with emergency actions during engine failure while driving under heavy traffic conditions. This action is a sure cause for unsafe vehicle operation. The instrument cluster also disables the electrical system to keep the engine operating and causes the car to turn off unexpectedly. The gauge cluster was replaced twice within the life of the car. Once in 2002 and 2005. This is the third cluster gone bad.

2001 Audi Tt roadster instrument cluster problems. Consumer states that the problems have progressed since 2005 when they originated. He also states that the vehicle now has performance problems due to the instrument panel. The temperature gauge immediately went to the far right and stayed there; the indicator light for the passenger air bag came on, the oil alert light came on randomly and the engine light came on continuously.

Normal operation of the vehicle, including start up, running vehicle on fairly hot or cold days leads to a failure of the central digital of the display. Furthermore, the analog gauge cluster is not accurate, coolant gauge reads very hot erroneously at all times (though actually coolant temps determined by other means show that vehicle is at normal operating temperatures). Fuel gauge responds erratically, fails to accurately register amount of fuel left. Tachometer readings seem to fluxate occasionally in err.

The gas gauge has not worked properly since the vehicle was new. The entire instrument cluster was repaired by Audi while the vehicle was under warranty and in the shop on 3 other occasions for the same thing. Now the car is out of warranty and Audi will not cove the problem. Audi is covering a like problem out of warranty in the uk, but will not honor out of warranty problems in the us. It is very well know that there is a problem with the fuel gauge in this vehicle which is a serious safety issue.

2001 Audi Tt coupe with gauge cluster problems customer states that the problem started just after the warranty period* the fuel and temperatures gauges no longer function and the multi-function liquid crystal display does not indicate readable information. The speedometer and tachometer only function sporadically and there is no way to know the level of fuel the vehicle has.

Progressive failure of instrument cluster. Gas gage reading 3/4 of a tank higher than reality. I ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere. Tachometer and speedometer no longer work. Makes it tough to predict turbo lag. Low power before turbo kicks in around 2200 RPM makes it tough to predict acceleration of car from standing start (such as left turn across a busy road). Temperature gage reading higher than actual engine temperature. Unable to determine if engine may truly be overheating.

1.) no significant events leading to failure. Parked car outside but I live in southern California, thus no extreme temperatures. 2.) gauge cluster did not turn on. Cannot see mileage, trip meter, RPM, or speed! 3.)sometimes restarting the car will fix it. Sometimes it takes 10 minutes for the gauges to turn itself on.
