Once again, you're not being helpful. Using the start button means I am bypassing the ignition switch (which is attached to the ignition cylinder) and going directly to the ignition relay, by way of the KESSY system............................
OK, if you're talking about the entire ignition system, that's a different story. I'm still not sure how it could apply, though, as I can drive 30 minutes continuously before the error comes up, but I'm always open to ideas.That's new information no?
So was DFM kicking in and making alternator field during cranking to brake the starter?
And ignition switch means terminals to operate whether virtual via BCM, Kessy/Traditional lock cylinder type.
I wonder if new alternator has different exciter type regulation?
I have been seeing later LIN charging systems in cars have a brake issue like aforementioned and it not report a problem in any controllers initially during a full fielded crank time!
Usually I just temporarily remove the belt to see.
Sorry I come across the way I write its just I too get annoyed when things mentioned are just dismissed, rather than asking why.
If a controller is unaware of a cranking or switch condition sometimes the virtual or cylinder type terminal 50 than it let's the stupid DFM carry ON!
Thank you.PART NUMBER

I'm 10 pages in because I cannot afford to just drop $2-3k on an ABS controller. I've been exhausting all other possible options (and fixing/replacing other things along the way that needed to be fixed/replaced anyway...) before I commit to a new ABS controller. That represents 2-3 months of savings at my current income, and isn't something I can currently save up for as I have other more pressing issues that have to come first.I'm sorry, but WTF are You doing here on 10 pages instead of replacing an ABS/ESP unit? This is well known fault of Bosch ESP 8.0, mainly electronics fail, very rare, but sensor itself may fail, too. As You have already replaced hydraulic part (with sensor), now just replace the electronic part. 4F0614517L is replaced with 4F0614517N, according ETKA or PL24 = both partnumbers are compatible. And yes, those partnumbers came only with quattro versions.
It's no longer "economically feasible" because of your previous sentence - planned obsolescence. There's no other reason for it. These things are DESIGNED to break.Planned obsolescence? So that somewhere after 8-10 years of age, it's no longer economically feasible to repair the car?
Just a guess.
I dunno. If I take off my tin-foil hat and slip the pocket protector into my Bosch engineer's lab-coat, I would say: "If you want us to build it to last 25 years and a half a million miles, we can, but it will cost substantially more."It's no longer "economically feasible" because of your previous sentence - planned obsolescence.

I got it for $5,710 out the door (tax, title, etc.). Salvaged title, had been in a front-end collision. I have replaced the headlights (because the dealer re-attached them with wood screws!), the front bumper skin, actual bumper and bumper shocks, several sensors, I've fixed oil leaks all over the engine, replaced the PCV manifold underneath the intake, various interior pieces that had broken, etc. I'm actually enjoying the challenge, and nothing has been a particular financial burden except for this ABS pump.You may have bought it used for a song, (I don't know) but it will always cost like an expensive car to repair. This is why expensive cars depreciate more once they're out of warranty than cheaper, more common cars.
PS: Has has the steering column lock played up yet? That's another thing those cars are infamous for.
