hi all

took my TT into have the dashpod replaced today due to chime not working, changed over no problems no cost but... i have just noticed my car has gone from being a youthful 42000 miles to a not so youthful 70900 miles???

what has happened, does this get programmed into the dash by the engineers and they have simply misplaced the milage or is this fed from the ECU????

Please help as i need this fixed but this is concerning me a little!!!

Thanks

Just had mine done and i asked them this question and they said all info is transfered over from the old pod EXCEPT the mileage, this is manually put in by the tech that changed the pod. This was Epsom Audi main dealer, take it back and have them re do it.

I thought they had one go only to reprogram a new dashpod.
Have a look at all the dashpod info in a search or at the top of the index. It will take you ages reading all the posts, but It has been mentioned.
Hope this helps you a little bit as you seem a bit worried.

this is great news thanks, i was worried it was read from the ECU or something and it may have been previously clocked or something, it will be going back first thing then!!

Thanks again for your help everyone!

:lol: :lol: They wasted two dashpods getting it wrong with mine!

When it went back to get corrected, they replaced the pod and programmed the new one exactly the same as the incorrect one - But then again i didn't have to pay for them... :lol:

Hi,
I think you can set Miles/Km conversion yourself. have a quick look at the manual. I'm pretty sure I saw the function when I was faffing about trying to change the clock time when I first got my car.

good luck :)

Question: can a used dashpod from a different smimilar model TT be fitted easily? how woudl the key recognize teh immobilizer info? does it need to be reprogrammed/recoded? and can teh mileage be changed to tally with my current mileage? i know if u just do straight swap the ignition wont start.
