This thread won't help you. You need to look at my other thead which covers 1999-2001.Can'yt wait for the PDF file too, I want to install this into my 00 golf TDI.
If your ESP light is on that means that the system is de-activated, (turned off).adrianTNT said:Hello, can someone help me with this?
I just got a second hand Golf 4, 1600cc, 16 V year 2001.
I have an "ESP" button and button light stays on even if is pressed (inside) or not. I cannot see any change when I press it.
I have that light next to speedometer (manual says is ESP light), that is also always on.
What does it mean?
ESP system is always on?
Always off, not functioning ?
ARBY said:Short question, I've found an ESP unit with control module (1J0 614 517 J and 1C0 907 379 M) but haven't found the rest of the parts. Is it possible to use just the ABS/ESP unit for ASR only, and add the brake booster and other related sensors at a later time, and then enable ESP functionality? In other words, can the ESP Control Unit do just ASR, or if you just want ASR do you have to get just the ASR unit?
Thanks in advance
adrianTNT said:I posted a previous message telling you that my ESP light stays on and nothing happens when I press the button on board, I did some tests at service, the ESP is not functional and those guys said is a problem to a "steering sensor" (?!) or something like that. They said that costs around 580$ so I am sure its a bad idea to get it from them.
They also said they have to check all car electrical installation to make sure I have no bad wires and that the sensor cannot be taken down and tested, this last one sounded strange.
- Anyone knows from where I can get such sensor? A shop maybe or maybe some of you have Golf 4 or compatible parts.
- Where is that steering sensor located in the car ?
I could not find posts by Lito in this thread.mycruiseagent said:Adrian,
Go to the first post in the thread and you will see that Lito lists the part number and in what year and model of car you might find one in a junkyard.
