- Turn car off and wait 10mins for systems to shut down.
- Unplug the connector from the top of your throttle pedal. Expect foul language and to loose a little skin from your fingers as its a bit stiff.
- Connect car side connector to the pedal box.
- Connect pedal box connector to the throttle pedal.
- Job Done.
The first time you turn on the ignition you might get a few error lights. These will clear after going for a drive and appeared only because you have disconnected a key component from the car. Errors might include ABS and Cruise control warnings. As long as the pedal box is not faulty in any way it should not generate any errors at all during operation. My cars have been in to Audi loads with pedal boxes connected. Just turn the box off and tuck all the cables / the controller up behind the dash and unless you are actually taking the car in from a throttle pedal issue Audi will never know its there.
Thanks Alex, got mine this morning. The heads up about the warnings was good.. got told my hill assist wasn't working (I don't have it anyway!) - seems like I hadn't plugged it in correctly first time round so the throttle did nothing but quickly fixed that.
I took it for a quick spin, having the controller in "red mode" deffo seems too much, too sensitive though green seems good. I tested it out in efficiency mode as dare I say it I use this often on my commute as I can coast down entire roads as traffic is slow. I was around 37mph and trying to put my foot down with the same pressure (not much) each time and the difference is noticeable between off/green/red.
I've stashed it behind the dash with green on, I wasn't sure where at first but behind the OBD connector there is a big enough area. Might try and route the controller somewhere though incase I do want to change that at ease.
Installation is straight forwards, took 5-10 minutes... being careful not to use too much force but the angle is a bit weird to get the connector off the throttle pedal and as you say is a bit stiff...
I guess now I just forget about it =)
