Dear lads - I hope its just normal behavior but still - I would appreciate your thoughts on this one...
So, I am in the middle of replacing soaked front under-carped upholstery footwell. You know - that foam on the floor with dark grey rubber type plastic. To do this I removed:
Steering wheel airbag, steering wheel. Turn signal and windscreen levers;
Immobilizer coil around the steering wheel lock, lock switch on the opposite side of the key
Front upper dash;
Radio, Climate module
Instrument cluster, central locking receiver on top of it;
Disconnected that big yellow connector near the hood release lever
Today I needed to move the car, so I just put back the Immo module, lock switch, battery
On Ignition key position the fuel pump woke up as usual, then I cranked the engine and it started up normally. However, the idle rpm was unstable and while maneuvering around the yard, the engine choked and it was hard to control both the rpms and the torq.
Is this a normal state of things, or the engine running has nothing to do to the aforementioned components ?
EDIT: It is a 1999 2.5T LPT ME7 M58 AWD
Appreciate your ideas! Thanks!
How common are cluster failures on 850's?
Not too long ago the main three dials lost the backlights. Now the tacho and speedometer needles intermittenly work.
Fuel gauge and temp dial has no needle issues yet.
Going to pull the cluster when it gets warmer.
