Question about Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

2007 golf tdi has dash warning light.

It's a small green light that looks like a speedo or tacho with a small triangle pointing to about the 2 o'clock mark. I can't get rid of it. :)

Hi,
i think the light you are seeing is the cruise control indicator. its not faulty , just switched on. the switch is on the indicator stalk. on later model they changed it so this light would only come on when you had set your speed.

How do i fix the tachometer?


you have an in cluster factory engine tachometer (RPM)?
the tacho is meter in the cluster and does not use speedo parts or its cable.
its just a meter that needs power, ground and spark tacho signals
if all 3 are good, the meter is bad. period.
the tacho signal goes to the ignition coil minus lug, and will good, as engine runs. so... wires bad, to tacho or tacho bad.
ever price a new one? or even used? $100 used?
you willing to pay that much for just a factory tacho?

there is NO speedo cable. this old 93 is electronic, (rare on most 93 cars made, toy is advanced)
here is the proof, amazing how books dont lie....
there is a speed sensor.
the tacho and speedo use the same power and ground
leaving just one wire,r-g red-green RPM sig. pin 5 of cluster
an is SPARK primary sig. so if only tacho is dead.
then the tacho is bad, or that pin 5 wire is dead.
got you to just 2 possibles.

2003 Satria, Tacho and Fuel gauge dont work . Fuel gauge comes up now & again low fuel light works. Tacho works now & again. But speedo and temp do work all the time.


It may be that the speedo and temp are mechanical, whereas the tach and fuel are electrical. Check fuse for inst. cluster for clean and tight fitment. Check electrical connection at back of inst. cluster.

Yamaha yfz r125 engine light on constantly, but engine runs ok


Close but not quite.
ECU handles tacho not speedo.
Speedo has it's own pickup usually on rear wheel hub or hall sensor on output shaft if not flexible cable direct drive from front wheel

Reset t/belt light


Have you got a rubber grommet in the instrument display (where the speedo and tacho is) about at the same level as the trip meter reset?

If yes then remove the grommet and there is a very small button if you straighten a paper clip and use it to just press the small button that should reset the T-belt light

I have a light on my dash with an exclamation point enclosed in what looks like parenthesis with verticle lines underneath. It's yellow. Do you know what it is?


If it looks like a deflating tire with an exclamation mark inside, its the check your tire pressure light.

If its a triangle with exclamation mark inside its the check engine light.

How do i remove the clocks on my 1998 mk4 golf?


There is a small trim between the steering wheel collum surround & the speedo clocks (the trim with the small piece of immitation leather material attached), this is only clipped in and can be removed with a flat screw driver, once this is removed you will be able to see two small torx headed screws at the bottom of the clocks, once you have removed these screws the speedo clocks will be free to pull out, once the clocks are free there should be two multi plugs on back of speedo, to remove this type of multi plug you have to push the purple lever on plug up & out, then you can completely remove the speedo head.

1997 CE Lancer speedometer


i had the same problem on my g/f's 2000 lancer GLXi, (with tacho),
i fixed the problem by putting a jump wire on the back of the instrument cluster,
the fault was in the wiring to the tacho part & i drew up my own wiring diagrams for the cluster unit,
then traced the fault,
looking @ the back of the cluster unit, the top right hand screw for the speedometer,,, follow the track on the circuit-board, there is a link wire UNDER the board (there is a dotted line on top where it goes, i think its the left 1,,, there is 2) this track then goes to the bottom left screw on the tacho,,,
i soldered a small gauge wire from the bottom of the link solder joint (MAKE SURE ITS THE CORRECT LINK, THERE IS 2 SIDE BY SIDE) to the bottom right track on the vertical plug socket (its common pos for the warning lights) this is where the "MIRAGE" & other "CE LANCER" (without tacho) gets its speedometer & gauges power from,

kind regards waz
if anyone needs a photo i will pull out the dash again lol its only 6 screws
