    Thread: The ASR button

    1. 04-12-2007 07:35 PM #1
      Like i know what its meant for but what does it mean and what does it exactly do.

      All i know is i can launch faster in every gear with it on.

      (im a new vw owner and the car does not have a owners manual.)

      i'm not sure wat it stands for but it takes off your traction control so you can spin the tires. i dont think it does anything for your engines power, but since it doesnt shut down your throttle when you lose traction you will be able to launch the car better.

      it prevents wheels from spining, i think it closes the TB

      I get a more wheel spin(was raining today) with it on :X.

      one more question, is keeping it on a good idea? or it doesnt matter.
      Gas mileage wise and engine matienace

      it stands for Anti Slip Regulation.

      prevents the wheels from spinning.

      ASR detects wheel slippage and applies braking force to that particular wheel. Working with the Electronic Differential Lock at speeds below 25 mph, ASR controls throttle response to maximize traction and minimize slipping as well.

      Hope that helps.

      i think you mean with it off. when you push the button it turns it off not on.

      thats wierd man, i get more wheel spin with it on. I went to one of my friends house and met a guy that works for VW as a mechanic, i let him drive my car because he loves VW's and he told me to get better launch push this button in and make sure the light is on. Also he was peeling out chirpin in 2nd and 3rd gear with it on. I had never knew about this button til today and never knew my car could chirp 3rd, but if its anti with it on then why does it only work when its on.

      nope, i was at about 50-56 in 2nd and i redline around 6,500.
      If u read above, rain means a wet road.

      I think you are confusing when the switch/light is ON/OFF versus when the ASR is ON/OFF.

      Light ON = ASR OFF

      If you turn OFF the ASR then you will be able to spin the tires. You should be able to launch better with the ASR off because you are then able to modulate the throttle pedal however you wish without the intrusive ASR from kicking on the brakes. There is a delay time after ASR kicks on to when it turns off which I have found to be very dangerous in some situations. If you ever try to launch your car TURN OFF YOUR ASR.

      you tellin me you test drive the car, and dont even ask what the ASR is for if you dont know what it is? i dont understand how someone could drive their car for a while not knowing what that certain feature does, at least press it and experiment.
