All,

In the past few weeks the color MFD on our 2004 V8 Touareg has gone "blank" -- it's really, really dim and we can barely make it out at night with full brightness on, but for all intents and purposes it is now useless. It's almost like having the LED backlight go out on a laptop screen, if anyone is familiar with that phenomena.

Is this a known bug? Is it a weak connection that can be fixed, or is replacement required? Do you think this is something my aftermarket warranty will replace? They did cover 75% of my blower motor.

Thanks!

probably the inverter or the actual backlight is burning out...most likely the inverter
unless it's LED backlit which I don't think it is...probably a very small flourescent bulb

I think VDO could repair such but you'd have to remove cluster and ship it out to them. You might consider purchasing a used cluster and swapping the parts needed...I have personally not taken the cluster apart to determine if this is feasible to be done by an end user...
