Cleaning sounds like good advice. But before I follow it and remove the cluster, let
me ask for one clarification: My "OK" display works fine. I get the happy "OK"
message upon startup, and got a little battery icon when playing with the belts
(alt. belt off, engine running briefly). Just no radio frequency (didn't need a code
for it either, for those interested in the other thread). These other indicators
should imply that the display is in working order, no?
The lack of radio display, though I would love for it to work, is not as
disconcerting as the lack of oil pressure and coolant and oil temperature
readings. I was going to begin repair by cleaning or replacing the multifunction
sensor and/or oil pressure sensors (after verifying correct wires are on the
Any chance that all problems are related? FWIW: the voltmeter, fuel gauge,
speedo, tach, clock, trip computer, and dash lights all work perfectly.

To be fair to the PO, the clutch master/slave went out and he brought it to a garage
he always used/uses. It was while parked there that it got trashed. He actually took
pretty good care of it. Both local dealers knew his name when I mentioned it. He
owns 4 newer (late 90's) Q's, and always took "my car" to the dealer for service.

Can hardly wait for the day I can actually plan a trip (to WI or elsewhere) with
everything working on my 200...
