    Ok - very new to VCDS having opted to buy it.

    I recently retro fitted a MFSW & Cruise control to my 55 A4 DTM. Good news is that the MFSW works great. However the Cruise control doesnt. I have two issues, 1) steering angle setup and 2) I cannot login to section 11 under 03 ABS brakes. it is ghosted out and says coding. I may have done something wrong here, i'm not sure. Also once i do get in to this login the DTM brake code is not listed when creating the login code.

    As a result i have the ESP light on the dash - and i am guessing no ABS.

    logs:

    Well thats what you need to do, calibrate the sensor, what process are you following?

    Turn steering wheel at least 30 ° left and back straight ahead.
    Select [Meas. Blocks - 08]
    Enter Group 005, [Go!]
    Field 1 (Steering Angle Sensor -G85-)

    Specification: 0.0 °
    Tolerance (when straight): ±5.0 ° (Note - When the steering wheel is straight the value shown
    should be -5 - +5 degrees, set it in between these values and leave it there for the rest of the
    procedure)
    Select [Done, Go Back]

    this was taken from an online guide - have also followed the Ross Tech guide but when it says login 11 - 40168 my login says coding (ghosted out). and i cant go any further.

    right - managed to reset the steering angle sensor and fault gone - missed the step where you have to start the engine!

    however for the cruise control coding, i have coded the steering wheel - 16 (02041) and have coded the engine - 01. I had to use long coding on this as it had "coding II - 11" ghosted out. But when i go to code the ABS - 03 the "coding II - 11" is ghosted out so i cannot input 40168. Any ideas?

    I addition for the step where you are meant to go into ABS - 03, function - 07 and enter the code i get 04X75 however the brakes on the DTM are listed as 1LC which isnt listed under the options for byte 3? any ideas?

    thanks in advance

    If I was you I would ping an email to support@ross-tech.com if you've registered your cable & advise of this query as it may help update the coding for later people stuck on the same issue.

    Did you make any progress on this?

    I have the same issue whilst trying to retrofit CC, I have coded the steering wheel and engine and calibrated the steering wheel sensor but cant get in to code the brakes because the Login - 11 box is greyed out under 03 - ABS Brakes.

    Im going to email ross tech today to see if they can help.

    All sorted :yes:

    It was the clutch switch that had failed so the cruise control wouldnt work, nothing to do withmy coding!

    Interestingly Ross-tech said there is no need to re-code the ABS module when doing a cruise retrofit, yet every guide I have seen on the net says that you do!

    Never once had to recode anything in abs, only steering angle sensor calibrations, so by that I agree with RT completely.
