    ABS unit recoding

    Ok a real long shot here so here goes, I've swapped a mk6 GTI TSI engine and the matching abs pump / wheel sensors to an older vehicle.
    Everything is running and ABS working.
    Esp / asr does not work due to missing modules / steering rack not able to be fitted.

    My question is can these related error codes be coded out of the module so that we can have a functioning abs light.
    Currently the abs system works but the light is on due to esp / asr / G85 missing.

    It might be useful if you'd post an Auto-Scan so people could see exactly how this car is currently equipped and configured, and what faults it has, but...

    As a general rule, you cannot "code out" fault codes.

    I get an autoscan up when im next near the car.
    Thinking about it from another angle are there any MK5 based vehicled manufactured without ESP?
    Can't say Ive ever seen a MK5 Golf without it but a Caddy perhaps?
    I could then possibly just switch out the ABS module to only have ABS and a working warning lamp.

    I would expect some MK5 Golfs to have ABS/ASR only rather than full blown ESP.

    You might want to investigae the MK70 or MK70m pump rather than a MK60 or MK60EC1. Saying that, it might still require the steering sensor: http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...ics_%28MK70%29

    Absolutely true. We had a 2007 Golf for quite a few years that had:

    Code:
    Address 03: ABS Brakes        Labels: 1K0-907-379-MK70.lbl
       Part No: 1K0 907 379 P
       Component: ASR FRONT MK70      0105  
       Coding: 0017025
       Shop #: WSC 01279 785 00200
    I do not think this car had a steering angle sensor either, at least not one that that ABS was aware of.
