Hi everyone...I purchased a little bug about a week ago from someone on craigslist and Im in love with my little bug (2000 2.0 atm). The problem is that I took it for the emission inspection to be able to register the car and it did not pass since the check engine light did not come one when they turned the switch. I came back home and have my husband inspect the cluster (part #1C0920901)and we found out that those micro led lights have been remove from the check engine and the abs I call the dealer to see if they have the cluster and they told me it has to be special ordered for $575!!! I thought about getting one at the salvage yard but I have read about how they need to be re-programmed ...and other issues like not being able to update the miles, etc... My question is..Is it possible to remove the chip that contain the car info (miles, key code ) from my current cluster from the green board and solder it onto a compatible board from the salvage yard? would that make the replacement act like my old one once everything is put together and install back in the car? My other option is to ship it to this company that can rebuild them but i am trying to find the most cost efficient way to do this. I was not expecting to be spending money this soon... If you guys know about any other solution for this issue, please let me know. Thanks so much!
