    [Select]
    [03 - ABS Brakes]
    [Login - 11]
    Enter 40168

    ok..........found that i have to go into steering assist in the golf and not abs brakes (03) yes its genuine cable................this is the issue:
    Tried to do a calibration(sttering angle sensor) now no power assisted steering ! this is the fault i get after i done the basic setting via 44-steering assist with vcds.

    Steering is well heavy !
    Although the steering light on the dash did flash red for 1 second before staying on yellow,when i tried to do the calibration again,it said ''not possible''......but ive read somewher that once you recalibrate you should turn off the ignition then back on again to preform the steering limit adaption.

    2 Faults Found:
    02546 - Steering Limit Stop
    005 - No or Incorrect Basic Setting / Adaptation
    Freeze Frame:
    Mileage: 7520 km
    Temperature: 41.0°C
    Voltage: 12.40 V
    Voltage: 12.20 V

    00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85)
    000 - -
    Freeze Frame:

    Do i need to switch car off once i do the basic setting then preform the ''steering limit stop adaption'' ????? ​

    Have you been to the Ross-Tech Wiki? The procedures are detailed there:
    VW Golf (1K) Steering Assist - Ross-Tech Wiki

    Read through the entire procedure. Not only do you need to do the steering angle but I think you also need to adapt the steering limits.

    If you are still having trouble, send an autoscan to our tech support group and ask them about what to do. The autoscan gives them the part numbers of the modules in the car. It is necessary for them to really help you resolve the issue. I know we are 6 hours behind your time but they do try to get emails back within a day of receipt.

    Please provide a full scan of your car, without deleting any logs.
