Disabling Traction Control

So I made this video to demonstrate how to disable traction control on my MK4 2001 Jetta 1.8t. My car did not come with the traction control button, commonly known as ASR/ESP button. Do this at your own risk. I do not know if this works on any other VW car, motor, or otherwise. I do know it does work on mine. www.vwvortex.com

VW Golf/Bora ASR/ESP Dashboard Light comes on after 10 minutes driving - How to Fix & Repair
The ASR or ESP dashboard light on a Golf/Bora can come on after around 10 minutes of driving but if engine turned off and on it goes again. This is because the ASR/ESP control module is waiting for a signal and if not found then times out after a set interval hence the light coming on. It is often a broken cable above the gearbox that causes it and this video shows how to fix it

All of these new electronic safety features are great! Traction control, vehicle stability control, electronic stability management, electronic stability program. They are the best thing since seatbelts. Sometimes however you will need to briefly turn them off. I will explain the situations where you would need to do this. Check your owners manual for the specific settings and controls of your vehicle. Thanks- Ben Lindsey
