Programming a 2nd hand instrument cluster with component protection

Recommended Posts

I’ve had to replace the instrument cluster  in my 2011 Audi A7 3.0 tdi SE as the old unit had burnt out on the circuit board. I’ve fitted a newish instrument cluster brought from breakers online and I’ve had two different guys try and programme the unit and has no joy, problem being the component protection with the instrument cluster, took the car to Audi and they want £1900 to replace the unit, does anyone know of somebody who can get around the component protection and code the unit to the car, the car is in Epsom surrey

I thought you had to have the matching ECU etc from the car for it to work? That definitely used to be the case on older vag cars.
