  4. Cruise control overriding cluster readouts; can pull fuse to reset

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    TLDR: Using cruise control randomly & suddenly makes the fuel level readout completely out of spec, sets the speedometer & tach to current setting as a baseline readout where "0" newly represents the numeric value *before* the error was induced. ------------------------ Hi all, apologies in...
