I've taken the instrument cluster out of my
AAUDI A3 2.0TDI 103kW from 10/2003.(8L I think?)
Connected it to a machine named TACHO UNIVERSAL to TRY to change the mileage...
But I didn't work .. cause I just didn't know how to use that machine!
So I putted the instrument cluster back, but now I've got the following problems:
from the moment i turn ON the ignition:
-thermometer is going to the maximum
-rpm-meter is going to the maximum, passing the 6000rpm even and goes back directly
-the mileage won't even show anymore, totally dark!
-the coolant fan is starting to turn
-Engine starting but stalling immediately

When they diagnose the car they got these fault codes:
VAG-COM Version: Release 409.1-US

Does anyone knows how I could fix this problem?
I've got the LAUNCH X431 Master machine, could I use this to fix the car?
