    I have just fitted 1K0 953 549 AG a steering wheel controller from a golf GTi so as my MFSW function will work, I should of made a note of the settings before but like a balloon I didnt, can anyone give me the coding for an 07 s3 with MFSW cruise and RNSE. At the minute I have an airbag light, ESP fault and my steering is a lot heavier. Any help would be greatly received as I'm stressing out here!

    VCDS should give you the code options when you open the controller ?

    Try THIS, might just need setting up.
    I once had a similar problem with various dash lights and stiff steering and it cleared it all up for me!

    Cool thanks, I'll give it a whirl, what did you actually have to change on yours? The whole lot or just ABS/EDS/ASR/ESP (MK60) settings?

    I think it was just the adaptation settings that worked for me, as soon as I went into them it automatically setup. My problem was slightly different to yours in that I plugged some new style clocks in and it messed everything up I never actually changed the coding.

    These are the details I used and eventually it all worked !

    It's from a pm I sent someone :-

    These are the instructions your mate needs to follow for basic settings and also steering limit stop adaption:-

    http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...#Basic_Setting

    http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...ial_Procedures

    http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...g_Wheel#Coding

    When you code the steering wheel you may not have exactly those options but you will be able to see the choices that you need.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers ​

    Do you mean you have fitted the airbag from a non-mfsw without changing the airbag wiring harness ?

    If so, go to Audi and buy one for £23 ! Ask for airbag wiring harness for mfsw.

    No, I went from a poverty spec non MF steering wheel, to a FBMFSW a while ago, at the time not realising i had a 'midline' steering controller, so eventually got hold of this one and not thinking i'd need the harness, looking at other posts, it looks like that will cure all?

    Am i right in thinking 8J0 970 589B is the correct harness?
