    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.

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