CAN I DRIVE THE CAR WITHOUT THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER FITTED
« on: March 17, 2020, 10:28:20 AM »
Hey guys
I am sending off my instrument cluster to have the Red MFD made the same colour blue as the speedo/rev counter. Albeit unlikely, could i stil drive the car without this being installed ???

Cheers
Louie

NO. !!!

Don't even attempt to turn the ignition on, without the cluster plugged in
I've heard you can loose lots of parameters in other modules doing so.

It definitely won't start anyhow, as the immobilizer data is in the cluster.
