Dashboard cluster!

Post by passatawx » Fri Nov 10, 2017 1:15 pm

Hi everyone! Does anyone know how to find out what type of dashboard do I have? Mine's a 14 plate Passat Executive Style. Could it be something like NEC+24C23? Cheers.

I think the clusters are made by vdo/ nec and I think the numbers are the eeprom numbers ,

Why do you need to know ?

Thanx for trying to help. I'm trying to find out what system does my dashboard have,something like what I mentioned above. I've got an executive style passat. My dashboard is black and white with nav display. So how would I find the eeprom numbers? Would I need to get the cluster out? Thanx again.

I take it you want to swap your cluster for a full colour one ?

If I can find one, yes. For the moment I want to add a reversing camera and puddle lights. My cluster's part no is 3AA920971A.

I have retrofitted the following to mine : high line reverse camera (kufatec kit), footwell lights front and rear (car systems pl kit) and puddle led light from boldsport however they are not error free whe a scan is done when you retrofit anything you will need to code it with vcds

Also when I bought the puddle light kit it had different terminals for the rear however all mine were the same .

I can't afford to get vcds so I wanted to get one of those cheap ebay vag things. They state that it would work on a Passat, but only with some specific NEC numbers. I just don't know how to find out about my eeprom/software (presuming it's that what it stands for) on my cluster. Thanx again.

I would tread with caution on eBay ,if you buy a genuine ross tech lead you will get lots of help via the Ross Tech Forum it’s a great product and will save you £££ and if you offset the cost against vw labour rates it pays for its self quickly.

Also obdeleven is another option but I don’t have any experience of it
