Control Module in Instrument Cluster Malfunction, looking for ideas

Pennypacker83

New member
Hello all,

First time post. I have a 2011 GTI that has ECU/TCU tunes from APR with full bolt-ons currently sitting at 121k-ish miles and since the winter started this year has been intermittently displaying multiple solid warning lights for virtually every system in the car (Brakes, Engine, tire pressure, fuel, etc...), but only when the outside temp is cold! This phenomenon resolves as soon as the outside temp warms up. With VCDS scan I see mainly J285 - Control Module in Instrument Cluster communication error (see log below). I feel this is solely a electronic communication issue as the car typically starts and runs normally. However, recently the engine starts up and dies within 2-3 seconds! In this state VCDS can-bus will not function with OBDII port. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Goddamn that’s a lot of codes. I’d clear them all, go for a ride and see what returns. I know multiple codes across various modules can also be caused by a dying battery, so check that.

Seems to be a rare issue. I've only found a few references to it across all of the forums. When its below 30 degrees here I get the u0155 code and the car starts and immediately shuts down. I've had to resort to putting a small space heater on the floorboard and after about 15 minutes of warmth, it starts every time, with gauges working. I have pulled the cluster and the ECU but the connections looked factory perfect. Did you find a solution to your starting issue?
