I've always loved the mk3 jettas, and I picked one up from a friend for 500 bucks a few months back and I've been slowly fixing it up as time/money will allow.
When I got it there were a variety of electrical issues (shorted relays, no brake lights, no turn signals, dead instrument cluster) and I believe I've worked them all out. I recently got a replacement instrument cluster from a friend which turned out to be bad (tested on another mk3) but when you turn the key before ignition, the odometer read "2(upside down U)(space)02". I picked up a working cluster from a junkyard last weekend and installed it last night, the cluster works perfectly, but I'm still getting that error code.
Google has failed me in finding out what that means, does anyone here know? Do I need to get a code reader to find out what's really going on?
Other than the error code the car is running great. I've focused on the mechanical/electrical to start with, now the exterior and interior need to be fixed up.
It's a labor of love really.
