    Try resetting the steering. Full left lock and hold for 5 seconds, full right lock and hold for 5 seconds then back to central. If that doesn't work then you will probably need VCDS to do the basic settings.

    Presumably your man disconnected the battery ?

    Shouldn't have removed the battery should you ? Obviously you did not realise that steering and abs need basic settings carried out with vcds to regain power steering. It's an easy job and anyone with vcds in your area would do it for you. If the mechanic did not have vcds and just a code reader then he has no chance.

    Read this, basic settings are halfway down the page :- VW Golf (1K) Steering Assist - Ross-Tech Wiki

    Don't slate Audi's or forum members just because you have made mistakes !

    There is nothing wrong with the car that a competent mechanic can't fix provided he has the right tools

    Just been over to steve's and had a look.

    During the adaptation process it seems to be failing. See Below

    [Select]
    [44 - Steering Assist]
    [Coding-II - 11] or if that function is not available then use [Sec.Access - 16] instead
    Enter 40168, to enable the basic setting.
    [Do it!]
    [Basic Settings - 04]
    Group 060
    [Go!]
    Activate the Basic Setting.
    [ON/OFF/Next]
    Upon selecting [ON/OFF/NEXT] it fails and shows "Group 60 Not Available" as if you have not gained the security access...

    It does seem as though the Steering angle sensor adaptations are the root cause of the ABS and Steering assist issues though... Any suggestions Nigel?

    There are 2 areas you can set the sensor, 03 & 44 depending on the car, did you try both?
