    On the same subject. I have this enabled on my central locking pump, which was replaced last week and I have noticed the following. My old pump would auto lock at around 12mph and my new pump locks doors at 20mph!!!!!

    ESP is always off in my car anyway. I was going to have a hunt around in VCDS to see if I could revert the ESP button so that it was off as default and you have to push the button to turn it on! :racer:

    you wouldn't need it to self lock if you pull away like that all the time, hijakers wouldn't have a chance of getting in away. lol :lmfao:

    I've searched today in vagcom to get it working but i couldn't find it how to :ermm: I couldn't get into group 46 (cent. conv)
    I thought that every S3 had the possibility to change that?

    Probably a daft question, but whats the reasoning behind doors locking above 10-20mph? Presumably when this feature is enabled they also unlock below this speed so would be no use against car-jackers - or I am i missing something obvious

    They don't unlock below that speed. They unlock when you pull out the key or when you have an accident.

    Could also be some sort of a kid safety thing, so they wont open the door by mistake, above certain speed as it will leave it off in case you have short trip or parking etc. not sure just thinkinh behind the logic.

    To open the door from the inside you have to pull the handle twice also.

    Mate you need to use this tool:

    http://www.kevin-st.co.uk/tt/BaseCode/Basecode.zip

    You put in your coding into the box and it will tell you what features you have enabled. You then tick the boxes forthe features you want and it will give you a new code to enter into 35 central locks.

    Well, it will get sorted out next week.
    I know somebody with lots of knowledge of vagcom. He will do it for me.

    Sorry guys I should have explianed better.

    The base code is under the Central Locks module number 35 in the "coding" field. You can also get it from one of your VCDS logs like the following:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Address 35: Centr. Locks Labels: 8D0-862-257.lbl
    Part No: 8D0 862 257 E
    Component: CV-Pump, Alarm, RC D17
    Coding: 16234
    Shop #: WSC 01236
    No fault code found.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mine's never had this feature since I've owned it, will I be able to enable it? Or will the option not be there?
