There are 21 test functions on the instrument cluster. Tests 1 and 2 are always unlocked. Tests 3-21 are only accessible after unlocking the test function. Test 19 is the unlock function for accessing the displays. The numbers used below are examples in what the display should show.
1. Car off
2. Press and hold the mileage reset button
3. Switch to KL R or ignition switch #2
4a. Do nothing and the display will automatically go into sub tests of main menu 0.1. The top part f the display will show "TEST 0.1"
12345 1.0 is the VIN
4812 1.1 is the Body #
834762 6_1.2 is the part # for the cluster
010203 1.3 is the coding/diagnosis/bus index
3495 1.4 is the manufacturing date (calander week/year)
04_600 1.5 is the hardware/software # of cluster (HW:04, SW:6.00)
415_06 3_1.6 injection status, number of cylinders, engine factor.
4b. Press and release the reset button immediately (<1 second) to advance to the next main test menu. Scrolling through the numbered test functions is achieved by pressing the instrument cluster button. The button is either momentarily pressed (tapped) < 1 second or pressed and held for > 1 second.
This signals the BC to display the sub-tests of the displayed main test menu or continue on to the next main test menu.
Go directly to Test 19 to unlock the test features.
TEST 19 Lock/Unlock
Sub-tests: L-On L-OFF
Display changes from "L-ON" to "L-OFF" every second. To unlock test functions press the cluster button immediately when it changes to "L-OFF". Tests are automatically locked when exiting test functions.
TEST 2 - Cluster System Test - Acticates the gauge drivers, indicators and LEDs to confirm function.
TEST 03 - SI Data
1500 3.0 = liters
0 3.1 = Periodic inspection days (not applicable in US)
TEST 04 - Momentary Consumption
0267 4.0 = 26.7 liters/1000km
0073 4.1 = 7.3 liters per hour
TEST 5 - Distance Gone Consumption
0195 5.0 = 19.5 liters/100km
226 5.1 = momentary distance to go (226km)
TEST 6 - Fuel Level sensor inputs in liters
237415 6.0 = Fuel level averaged
*LH sensor input = 23.7 liters
*RH sensor input = 41.5 liters
0652 6.1 - total tank level averaged = 65.2 liters
0667 1_6.2 = indicated value and tank phase
* 1 = both sensors are ok
* 2 = one sensor fault
* 3 = implausible input
TEST 13 - Gong Test
GONG 13.0 = activate gone by pressing button (gond response is delayed)
TEST 14 Fault memory (not for diagnosis)
TEST 15 thru 18 - Not used
TEST 19 - Lock unlock function
TEST 20 - Avgerage fuel consumption - correction factor.
The factor follows previous systems, with adjustment range of 750 to 1250. The adjustment method is new for the base cluster. If adjsutment is necessary, enter into test 20 using the cluster button.
The correction factor number is changed by using the sub-test for the "ones, tens and hundreds of the factor number. The digits will automatically scroll through 0-9 within each group (ones, tens, hundreds)
XXX9 20.0 = press the button when the correct "ones" position is attained.
XX5X 20.1 = Press the button when the correct "tens" position is attained.
12XX 20.2 = Press the button when the correct "hundreds" position is attained.
Seems to me that thee are actually usable functions that mechanics can utilize to diagnose problems while driving (as opposed to 'easter eggs' in the OBD software). I can think of more than a few times that I could have used a few of these tools while trying to diagnose a car problem.
Thanks for posting this, I am definatly going to play with it when I get my car.
