Re: Disable ABS with VAG-COM!!!!! (Mark4VR6)

Judging from your comment, you should not be fooling around with the VAG-com and turning functions of the car on or off. If you are looking to get rid of the ASR, don't disable your ABS altogether unless you are the best threshold braker on the streets, which I highly doubt most people are.

Re: Disable ABS with VAG-COM!!!!! (sbkingz1)

Since the ABS controller handles the brake proportioning on modern VW/Audi's, disabling ABS is a very bad idea. I had a faulty ABS sensor on my '00 GTI 1.8T, which caused ABS to be disabled. Emergency braking was exciting in a not-so-good way.

Re: (UncleBens)

problem I have is that my ABS is causing the tranny not to shift (auto tranny) and I can't communicate with my ABS controler. Is there anything else I should check when it comes to ABS?? Are there any other fuses, beside those standard ones??
(already changed abs control unit and ECU)
Thanks

Your ABS stops your trans from shifting?? Try unplugging your TCM and see if you can communicate with the ABS .
Check your fuses on the battery.
When you unplug your ABS module and do a road test does your trany shift?
