It sounds like it isn't the cluster!


What do you mean be "everything dies" the minute you start?

Does the engine run normally? Is it just the display that doesn't work when the engine is running?


The lights and illumination are separate to the engine instrumentation.


If you search t'internet for a PDF named g3vr6ecu95on.pdf, you should find a 10 page PDF describing the OBD2 engine wiring for the Golf3/Vento.

The cluster is depicted on the last two pages.

You could mark up the lamps that are working on the diagram and trace the wires to find something common to all when the engine is running.


There is a lot of information to absorb, so take your time, understand what the diagram is illustrating and be methodical.


Don't forget we are supposed to enjoy tinkering with these beasts!!
