Title: Faulty indicator stalk, cruise control question
Post by: Jaks101 on January 11, 2017, 05:18:17 PM
I've come to the conclusion that my stock indicator is damaged as my dash cluster does not show the indicator warning lights, nor the high beam warning light but everything else works fine and work intermittently when I push the hazard light (recently replaced) so I conclude it's not the bulbs in the instrument cluster.

I was just going to swap the indicator stalk with a standard one but noticed that cruise control seems easy to fit and I also have vcds.

The only thing I wanted to know whether a 55 plate golf Gti with midline dash already has the correct module and the extra wire I think you need from looking at the how to guides.

If I have to start messing putting an extra wire and control module in then I think I will leave it as I would rarely use cruise control.


Anyone with knowledge to help

Early revision stalks are known to pack in after time.

You could find out which revision you have with a quick scan

AFAIK the need for the wire is needed on pre 06 models. If you buy the genuine kit retrofit kit from VW it comes with the extra wire needed, not sure about the module.

If your car has a roof aeriel from factory then you will have the later style wiring and the wire will be fitted.  All GTI's have midline control module at minimum so you should be ok on that

Well my car definitely has an external aerial, did the first ones not have them on the roof?

Some of the first ones didn't. Probably a flaw they found in the way it was wired and they fixed it on the newer wiring by adding the aerial on the roof
