my name is brian im from mn new too the site... my buddy has a mk4 1.8 with immo2. his car wouldnt start one day, immobilizer sequence. so i used a vcds and could not communicate. fixed the radio problem and still nothing, google led me to take out the cluster and jump 2 pins, did that and presto it works... so the cluster is shot apparently... have another one but can i install it without the codes off the original cluster (steps 2 and 3 on the ross tech writeup). i know i need the skc and i would have to purchase a vag tacho to get it, but will i be able to swap cluster with just that/? because i can not communicate with the old one.

good question....... Please try it and report back, it would really help others. The SKC should be able to be read off the ECU but I don't know if it can get it or not since it normally reads it off the cluster and your cluster is shot
