992 Instrument Cluster issue


PCGB Member
Hi All,

Just been out for a drive in my 992 GTS and the car appears to have developed an issue with the instrument cluster where the two dials on the left hand side of the Rev Counter have turned a blue colour and graphics have faded. Whereas to the right hand side of the Rev Counter all appears normal with white lettering and sharp graphics.

I've tried shutting down the car and restarting but no difference and the issue is still present. I drove the car on Friday and all was fine. Just been out now and noticed it as soon as I started the car in the garage. It's almost like the digital LED display is failing. I've had the car from new and it's coming up to 18 months old.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? If so, is it a known issue with Porsche and is it a quick fix? I will add there are no error messages suggesting there is some problem and the car drives fine. It's just this display issue. I've tried changing views and the problem on the left side still remains.

I have made a quick video of the issue and sent it to my contact at my OPC. Let's see what he says tomorrow, but any useful information any of you could provide would be helpful.

Many thanks in advance.
Sounds like a physical failing component to me - I wouldn't be surprised if it results in a new cluster. Suggest lots of photos of gaps and fitment and an honest discussion about any cabin noises ( squeaks and rattles from dashboard ) before it goes in - jsut to make sure there are no "thats not a warranty item" after the event
I’d agree that it sounds like a component failure and the best course of action is to leave it to the dealer to sort it out. You’re still under the factory warranty so there won’t [shouldn’t?] be any issues.

Hopefully its replacement won’t introduce any more cabin creaks which you’ve already documented on here. Who knows, the tech may even find some sources for them!?😀

Thank you gents. Dealer contacted me today and has told me to bring the car to him on Thursday for him to see it. Initial attempt he said will be a system reset on the whole control unit. Then he will see if that resolves. Depending on outcome of that we can discuss next steps. Colours looked a little better today on the left hand side, but I can see there is still some issue. I'll report back after Thursday.
There may well be separate ribbon (wiring) to that part of the cluster and it may have worked loose, just a thought. Either way, as Jeff says, its still under manufacturers warranty so a no cost fix.
Very random but it is has sorted itself out. Did a search on Rennlist and other 992 owners have also experienced this exact issue and theirs also sorted itself out. I did take it to my OPC this morning and as I couldn't replicate the issue he said we will leave it alone and to let him know if it comes back. Fingers crossed it doesn't come back. See link to Rennlist thread below if it helps anyone else:
