      i would save your current long code on the abs just to be save so if you do what to put it back you can. you will make the change yourself he just writes the code

      This is exciting news, but I would really be interested in some testimony about the driving experience this creates... And as others have asked, I would really like a full explanation of how this was solved, any side effects (if any) and potential risks.

      But mostly, I just want a video of someone doing a ****ing donut.

      I highly doubt the dealership will know of the mod.
      It's like them knowing you activated auto windows up.

      NO risk, pure and simple. Much love to the creator and OP.

      just about every car will be different.

    15. 11-30-2012 11:20 AM #155
      interesting that the long coding would be different for every car. to me this likely means it is tied to the VIN somehow?

      if so it's likely just some sort of maths. I can understand the guy may want to keep his discovery proprietary, but if it were me I'd toss it up on a web application and give it out to the community.

      either way, someone will figure this out eventually.

      Not circumventing anything. I'm wondering what bytes VW XOR'd with the VIN to make this happen. The info I gathered was Byte 7,9,11, maybe 13 is salted with the VIN.

      Yea I don't understand why he can't just email his own long code and he'll be able to see the change once he gets back the new long code.

      If he's skeptical, he doesn't have to put in the new long code right?

      I'm a hobbyist in embedded systems. This was on my list of things to look at, and glad he got to it, and knocked it out!

      Now if he will just cater to our perpetual impatience, and start replying to emails so I can paypal the equivalent of a 12 pack of bier for his efforts!

      Defaults to on when car is restarted. Nothing different than the ROW cars.

      I think it's completely understandable for people to want to know how it was done. Me being one of them.

      The guy simply has the knowledge that was required to know what to change. I'm just wondering if APR and other tuners know this method aswell and simply didn't want to deal with what's necessary to do it

      Trust me, if APR knew, it would have been leaked, if they were concerned about anything.

      The fix is not going anywhere, can you wait 24-48 hrs? He is flooded with emails.
