Hi there,

I just bought a 1996 Passat TDI Wagon with 290K. Its been a great car so far but my first project has gone bad

I just replaced the glow plug wiring harness(as it was all cracked) and 4 new glow plugs(3 out of 4 were bad) last night and after completing the work took the car for a spin.

It started right up BUT none of the dash was working (guages,tach,gas,temp) and the check engine light was on. The car ran fine and had good power, but now it cranks for some time and starts eventually but stalls after running for 1 second.

I tried unhooking the battery and hooking it back up to hopefully reset something and it made no difference

It aslo has a weird clicking noise in the dash and the guages look like they're ticking like a clock almost??? I will hook it up to a scan tool when I get home today. Thanks for the Help
