The events leading up to the failure were normal day to day conditions that go hand and hand with normal car use. The display in the center of the gauge cluster now has missing or dead pixel rows preventing the display of messages such as, coolant level, brake lamp malfunction, and engine oil level.

S4 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,250 miles
The car was purchased on may of 2007. The cars instrument panel was working fine when purchased. All the cars critical information is displayed on the panel. A month after purchased I noticed that the panel intermittently fails. The car was running low on coolant but since I could not read the deploy I had no idea until the car overheated and the water pump blew. The repair alone cost me $800. Mechanic stated that the instrument cluster should have displayed that the coolant was low. So I also believe this would be dangerous because all warning information is displayed on the cluster; brakes, temperature and oil.

There were no events leading up to failure. Failure is center display in instrument cluster has lost lines, and goes so dim at times that I can't read anything on it. The display gives important info for failures in system, like brakes, headlights, oil pressure loss, etc. And if I cannot read/see it I wont know what's going on.
