Default ASR light on after 5 speed swap b5 passat

I just picked up VCDS, and have never used it before, so bare with me.... I was told by user vwzips that given my situation, and with Bosch 5.7 abs, I need to:

"log in, change the soft coding and reset the CanBus (don't forget to unplug the TCU!)"

I was hoping someone could explain that a little more to this noob. I didn't want to revive the bit off topic thread in the wrong forum, but here's a link for the interested:

May provide more insight.... Cheers folks!

Ross-tech has everything on their wiki website.

You'll need to generate a log in number based on the car's equipment, then input that login number, then change the soft coding... again based on the car's equipment. If the car just has ASR, and no ESP, then you won't have to do a recalibration of the steering angle sensor, since it won't have one.

Thanks oil hammer. I did there process described on the Wiki and their YouTube video. However, despite researching, I can't figure out how to reset the canbus

Goto the coding in the CAN Gateway and leave the number at 0006 or whatever the default is, then click Do It!

Basically, whatever is connected to the CAN Bus at that time will be the new "installed controller" list.

Oh yeah sorry, I didn't get the second part of your question about the CAN, just the first part about the ABS.
