ABS ESP faults after cruise control retrofit

Hi!
I was retrofitting a cruise control on my A3 8PA MY2006, did everything according to a guide from this forum. I had an old steering wheel control module 1K0 953 549 AF which I have swapped for a AH model that was previously in the VW Jetta and which is the one that should work properly according to the stalk instructions. We assembled everything together and with my friend we have coded the steering module and the engine part in the VCDS.

After we started the engine there were numerous faults and lights lit on the dash, Cruise is working just as expected however there was no power steering, and we were not able to get rid of the ABS and ESP errors. We have tried coding the ABS/ESP according to this procedure, went for a test drive but the errors didn't clear. We have tried disconnecting the battery for half an hour however it did not help either.

With no further ideas we went home and just as as I was turning around and parking in the driveway the power steering gave way miraculously in which moment I thought I have broken something so I stopped the engine and started again and the fault didn't come up again, went for a short test drive around city and it seems OK now, however the ABS and ESP lights are still on.

I don't have a VAGCOM with me so I cant check the errors now, what I an give you is a list of ones we got earlier. If any of you fellas would be willing to look into it I would be more than happy to try it out to get rid of those errors.
The vagcom log is in Slovak, sorry, I have highlighted the error codes and tried to provide as close translation as I was capable of. Hopefully it makes some sense to you.

Any ideas are sincerely welcomed. Thank you!

Please ignore the auxiliary heating error, didn't have time to fix it, and since it is not that crucial I keep postponing it all the time:)

We already did this twice, however it seemed to not help. But I might give it a one more shot since the power steering came to its senses.

I did the sensor calibration again as you suggested however the problems are still persisting. I have managed to get a new log from a different VCDS, English one this time. It says that the ABS module is incorrectly coded. Can you tell me what the correct coding would be?

Hold the steering wheel on each lock for 10 seconds then it should accept the limits

once you set the correct coding for the abs module (it should popup in a box and you add the variables/options up)

Tried that already with no luck. However power steering is no longer an issue, it works. The only problem is the ABS and ESP lights on the dash resulting from the ABS fault, that I don't know how to get rid off.

I've definitely never had an ABS light on the dash after a Cruise Retrofit so something definitely isn't right.

Did you touch the coding of the ABS module? Can't understand why that would throw a fault!
 

fateman

Registered User
Only areas we coded were the engine and the steering wheel.

Is it possible that the new steering wheel control unit that was originally in the VW Jetta can have some settings stored that affect the ABS? because honestly that is the only new part in the system, and there were no errors prior to that. Could it require a special coding somewhere?

I don't know whether the stalk can have effect on that but I guess not (PN: 8p0 953 513 D).

One thing that keeps me wondering is that when I do the Steering Angle (G85) Calibration everything goes as prescribed in the plan. I get to the point where it says "OK" in field 2 under Group 060. However on the top of the screen it says that the Basic Settings are OFF. When I try to enable them by clicking ON/OFF/NEXT it gives errors in the fields where the previous correct readings were displayed (I don't have a screen of that, might do one tomorrow if necessary). Apart from this there's nothing else that would have caught my attention.

So it turned out the problem was with a ABS control module coding, yesterday we started with the original values that were there prior to the retrofit, and it gave all the errors I listed previously, even after calibration and test drive, which was not sufficient I guess, they really should rethink the phrase "short test drive" right? :D Anyway we then checked the ABS module for coding, well my friend did while I was away without telling me and it seemed to him that it was wrong as it was based on 15" rims (although they are not even listed in the registration certificate for my model) instead of 17" I drive at the moment. so we un/knowingly continued with the altered ABS coding. Naturally it gave errors all the time, even after we sorted the power steering. Today I researched the issue some more and came across an article that said how the ABS module should be coded according to the PR codes in the service booklet/trunk, so I felt the need to check the coding again. And luckily that seemed to be the root of the problem the whole time. The warnings disappeared. We did a rather long test drive just to be sure, and no errors came up so all good now. Cruise is working like a charm, one less thing to worry about, yaay :)

Thank you all for the support and ideas, I honestly tried all of them. Wouldn't it be for my friend who "forgot" to tell me such a small detail I could have it resolved yesterday. Better late than never is the spirit I guess here.
Keep up the good work guys:)

Always good when you can figure out a problem by yourself! Nice one well done.
