Bought my first audi - 200q20v!

I believe the fuse for it is also in conjunction with a few other
things. I have a 4kQ with a trip computer in it that's actually burned
up, so that might be the problem as well. There are also quite a few
issues with the instrument clusters from that time frame. You might
want to take it apart and check for crachs at the solder joints. If
there is one particular area of Audi's of that time, it's the
electronics, Particularly the instrument clusters and Bose sound
systems. However, once fixed correctly, you should have no problems
with them. Ingo did a writeup on them in the past, you may search the
archives for it.

Oh, and you may want to trim the excess off your posts. Otherwise, it
costs extra $$ for the bandwidth.
