I have just bought a 1999 1.6 auto Golf hatch. Sadly the previous owner has mislaid the owners handbook.

The problem i have, is that the MFA display in the rev counter, and trip meter in the speedo will not retain the memory. Everytime i switch off the ignition, both of these reset. The total mileage remains.

I am assuming this is some kind of permanent power problem? Any ideas please?
