A Complete Overview at a Glance: Instrument Clusters
The instrument cluster is incorporated into the vehicle bus system and provides the driver with information relating to speed, engine speed, fuel levels, and a number of other vehicle parameters. New models appear as a general purpose display. In addition, instrument clusters also fulfill other functions, such as storing vehicle data. This data may have wide-ranging and potentially legal significance, for example when it relates to mileage, compliance with maintenance intervals, or the logging of warning messages.
The following must be checked in the workshop during servicing:
- The vehicle must be reprogrammed for incorporation into the vehicle bus system
- For the security of the stored data, a franchized workshop must be contracted.
- The display should be clear from dust in order to avoid claims
- Avoidance of manipulation of the speedometer
