Hopefully someone can relate & help me with this . .

Have a 99 996 C4, don't drive it as often as I would like, it's been a month since driving . .

Today I tried to start her up, and just got the clicking sound, grabbed some cables, and she started up right away. I then took her out for an hour or so, parked, started the engine, drove a little more, then tried the engine again, all was fine. I then parked in the garage, and noticed that the cluster lights will NOT turn off, not even after 20 minutes+ which is obviously draining the battery, and perhaps the culprit for the car not starting? The speed is on, the milage, and the time, just those three items. I disconnected then re-connected the battery to re-set everything, and the cluster lights went out. I then started her up again, and the same happened, cluster lights will not turn off . . Any ideas? I guess the first idea is to probably get a new battery, or at least test it right?

Any advice would be appreciated - Thanks, Gareth

Cluster lights stay on for a while after your remove the ignition key (about 3 or 4 minutes).

If you push in on either re-set button at the side of the tachometer, the digital instrument lights will illuminate. You might check to see if either button is stuck in....carefully. If you break a shaft, you'll find that there is no "official" replacement part available. A RennTech board member is a source of new shafts (satisfied customer here) or an old instrument cluster will have to be dissembled for the shaft. -- B Whall
