Just installed ESP in the 2001 Golf built 12/2000. No telltales, etc. Seems to be golden, and working swell. Don't know that this means it will work for all 01's, but it works on this one.

Any questions, just ask!

The Pin 12 to 38 bridge initially messed me up! But I eventually figured it out. Thanks for the info.

First a big thank you to tongsli, and everyone else who contributed information to this thread.

I just finished this project, and never would have attempted it if others hadn't done it before, and documented it too. I took the car out for a test drive got everything coded, and calibrated. Everything is good, with the ESP, but I am getting two vcds errors on the Steering Wheel module.

01426 - Controls in Steering Wheel (E221)
49-00 - No Communications
01336 - Company Data Bus for Comfort System
80-00 - Single-Wire Operation

I buzzed out the clockspring and only the 2 airbag pins conduct, the other three are open. My old clockspring all 5 pins are through. I used clockspring 1j0959654ap because that was readily available (aka cheaper) on ebay than the 1j0959654ag . ETKA says "part number is not interchangeable with replacement (forward only or linear supersession). I know the 1j0959654ap was used on MK4s with esp, so I figured it would be okay. Does anyone know if the 1j0959654g has all 5 pins through on the clockspring? Pretty sure this is my problem, but it would be nice if someone could confirm before I go buy another clockspring.

I saw those. The Audi Allroad references in those ebay listings made me go looking in ETKA for the Audi Allroad, and I got an answer there. On the Audi page it describes the 1j0959654ag as "cancelling ring with slip ring and steering sensor for vehicles with multifunction steering wheel"

Bumping an old thread to see if anyone has success depinning the ABS plug? I have tried an assortment of home-made tools with little to no success. I can usually get them out but end up damaging them a lot of the time. I have considered buying a set of depinning tools but most of them don't list a tool for pins under 1mm?

Thanks

LOL, I did that but didn't put VW in front, got a whole bunch of gibberish, :rolleyes: :cool: Thanks.

Ok, so watching a video in that link, ESP seems to me, its for stupid drivers who can't drive to help them be safe? And Government mandated by 2012? :(
It's also for "good" drivers that like to freak people out. In my wagon I was able to throw it around on a gravel road to demonstrate what the button in the centre of the dash does. My younger brother nearly pissed himself as I jerked the wheel side to side demonstrating you can't spin it around if you wanted to.

Truthfully, I think it's great. Some people will complain because they don't 'feel' in control of their car, but the car will detect and attempt to correct the vehicle's action's before the user will even try. Not going to get into this as I'm sure there is a large pro and a large con group.

I think it's great and I'd install ESP...if it wasn't so much work :p

You may laugh at ESP, but I looked at it from a different perspective. Back in 2006, my wife rolled her '98 4Runner on the interstate two days before she test drove her 2006 Jetta_TDI with ESP, the addition of ESP seemed like a worthwhile expense, along with the multitude of air bags and having a lower CoG.

I can't afford to replace vehicles every 5 years, and at that point in our marriage, she had been in two vehicles that were totaled in accidents in under 5 years. Before your mind tosses a blanket statement about my wife's driving, she's actually a very conservative defensive driver, not an aggressive driver. That being said, I'd still love for her to take a road course driving school to become more familiar with vehicle dynamics.

When I analyzed the accident with the 4Runner, I determined that a functional ESP system would have likely saved that vehicle. The fact that she was able to walk away after 1.5 rotations onto the roof was amazing. The fact that she flat spun the 4Runner multiple 360° rotations across 3 lanes of Interstate 95 and a breakdown lane is what ESP could have helped with. When you hit the dirt shoulder in a flat spin in a high center of gravity vehicle, your likelihood of rolling it is nearly 100%. The Michelins that were on the 4Runner were not the fault of the accident, and they left some great tracks on the dry pavement trying to dissipate the vehicle motion. I drove that section of interstate daily for 15 years.

If ESP saves anyone's family member from going through the ride of a lifetime and ending up on the roof of their vehicle on the shoulder of the highway in a rural area at night, it's probably worth it. The EMT's who showed up were amazed my wife walked away from the accident that night.

Sure, there were some things that my 2006 Jetta_TDI (company car) with ESP didn't like, especially one particular on-ramp I used to pass every morning where the road grading crew obviously screwed up a grade mark they set on a stake at the beginning of the curve. However, most of the times that the ESP system obviously triggered in the 90k miles I put on that company car were times were the driver deserved the notice. ;)

Now, I need to go read all these posts and see what it takes to add ESP, because the 45+ pages of retrofitting ASR sounded too easy to add to my 2004 MkIV. :)
