      They already came up to me asking if im ok when they saw me driving in circle as i was resetting the abs test i accidentally activated lol

      Again, those of you in the North East areas such as Long Island, NYC, CT, NJ. Once you get the required info and you don't have a vag-com cable, we can set something up.

      It looks like our campaign worked, we gave VW a chance to fix this themselves but more importantly we got the message out there to the right people. Lot's of 's to this guy!

      Now, I just need Vag Com. Also it might be helpful if someone gives us a little head's up on what exactly we need to send through email.

      Thanks man, but unfortunately I'm in the Whitehall in Eastern PA. Unless you want to take a trip across the state? lol

      Anyone near me wanting to get this done? PM me if you want to help, so that we can both pull the data together!

      So it was done with VCDS exclusively? I know .DoTuning has decent equipment to be able to flash/tune cars but I'm wondering if he used that or VCDS to get this done.

      I was told it'd be impossible to do as a consumer with VCDS, thankfully .DoTuning is a generous guy and willing to help an entire community

      So what are we getting in return for sending the VIN and ABS info? 4 pages of talk, but nothing on what we are actually changing. Long coding on the ABS unit? Something like that? I'd send my info, but I'm winning hearts and minds in Afghanistan right now. Nice to know when I get back I can disable this.

      Awesome! I think I'm going to buy the cable just so I can do this.

      Once we send our information in, what is needed to implement the fix?

      A couple of questions:

      Will this throw up a red flag when I take the car to the dealer for service?

      Why does he need the VIN?

      Does he send back instructions on how we can disable ESC? So in other words, would we have to make the change or does he somehow do it remotely (probably a stupid question lol) ?
