How to Unlock the LCD dash on the MK5 / Mk6
Hi, this is a great little trick, it lets you see your speed, revs etc. on the trip mileage display.
-Hold the trip mileage reset button.
-Start the engine (whilst holding the button)
-After a couple of seconds the word ‘test’ will appear.
-Now release the mileage reset button and use this to scroll through the various readings.
Most of the readings are computer jibberish, to do with engine management and diagnostic stuff, but I've made a list of the usfull ones.
1 Gage Test
2 Dial Test
3 Bulb Test
4 Diagnostic Check
5 Diagnostic Check
6 Clock Type (shows ?date 44? if UK)
7 Diagnostic Check
8 Speed MPH
9 Speed KPH
12 Engine Type
13 Temp of Engine
14 Battery Voltage
15 Diagnostic Check
16 LCD Display
Diagnostic Check (18-30)
--Try it for yourself, its good, and looks cool !
