    How to easily source and fix the ESCL on VAG Grab bag of tricks!

    I have had success with replacing the micro switches and servo motor with worm gear & which fail, but usually most just want the lock disabled & so it can't fail again?

    What's the point of locking the steering if the car can't be started anyway on an old car, no one wants to steal this POS anyway?

    Lots of reports of the lock not unlocking in cold weather and people pissed off?

    I don't understand why separate ESCLs exist on modern VWs with electromechanical power steering. Add a pin and a solenoid to the EPS rack, and include it in the Immo handshake. Done and done. You've already spent the money on a microcontroller and CAN bus connectivity. It would be easier to design and package, and it's still in a shielded location. It would cost less, weigh less, and make the steering column itself lighter and more compact, thus safer in a severe crash.
    Silence gives consent.

    That would be using way to much common sense and the KISS method Jason, so why would a car designer use that?

    i've had 6 different callers this week with this issue and a bunch last week. Thank you for the thread. I've been pointing customers to it.

    I have a problem with a steering lock on a 2008 Q7 with module 4F0905852D with a MC9S12DG256 mcu inside and exchange the mcu into a 4F0905852B board module using MC9S12DG128 mcu from a A6 2006 and it worked just fine.
    Seems like the 4F0905852D with MC9S12DG256 mcu used on 2008> can be exchanged with 4F0905852B with MC9S12DG128 mcu used on >2008 and they are compatible.
    Also although there is a difference on the main board itself for the 2 versions but the mcu can be exchanged between the two different boards and still works.
    I had tried this and works.
    Had my original 4F0905852D board damaged with good mcu and mounted it on older board for 4F0905852B and worked fine.

    The problems i have is VCDS procedures to do adaptation, coding, and even access login on these modules.
    Can't find detailed information and procedures for these EZS modules. Should they be "confidential/classified"?
