Hi there,

We will need some additional information:

1. What is the model number of your VDO module?

2. What do you mean by "mode thru stuff"?

Hey. Has V(###) ###-####rev. Marine cluster isolation unit. Siemens VDO Automotive. LCD displays trip, hrs, F/C water temp, mile, km meter , feet , time. Has a mode and adjust button. Mode scrolls you thru settings and adjust let's you make changes. All indicator arrows were flashing. But messing with it if turn off feet depth. It will allow me to go thru modes.

Hi,

just to clarify, when you say "It will allow me to go thru modes" do you mean "it will NOT allow me to go thru modes"?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It will let me go thru modes. Trip min is working. I started it up today and ran it 19 min. Water temp working. Time working. Miles , hrs working. Just turned feet back on now want let me do anything. Arrows flashing at every option. ?

Ok, that sounds like a software glitch.

V1269000015 is just the isolation unit, so I'm not sure what VDO model you have.

However you should try updating the software on your VDO by downloading the latest version from the Siemens website and see if that helps.
