Hi reparks,,Make sure to look after it or his mates might take you back to afghanistan. Do not touch this button. it assists you in icy coonditions, they enable you to turn it off if you work for top gear and want the stig to drive it in extreme conditions. look after the car for your son and wish him my best regards on his return. You could change the oil and air and pollen filter and oil filter for him before his return. you can get these from your motor factors and not from vw dealers.

Anti Slip Regulation. It is used in wet or slippery situations and limits power to a spinning wheel.

2000 VW JETTA VR6 lights on everywhere!!


Believe it or not, this could be a mass airflow issue. The mass airflow can trigger the lights the ASR and the EPC lights. When i gets really cold, the airflow sensor sends signals to the CPU to readjust the air/fuel mixture.

Just had ac repairs done on 1994 Mercedes 500SL. After I picked it up from shop, the ASR system is active, and by the time I got it home, the CHECK ENGINE light is on, too. Any suggestions?


turn off car and unscrew the throttle cable a little bit then start it up again. ASR is finicky if it feels pedal is being depressed on startup it goes into "limp home" mode.
Have you had your engine upper and lower wiring harness replaced? From 1991-1995 MB was forced to use a biodegradable insulation that went bad under the hood due to engine heat.

2003 VW Jetta ''door open'' alarm goes off while driving


The door latch located in the door panel has a micro switch built into it assembly. It is what detects an open door. A new latch is about $150. If you could find a shop to replace it for you. You could also try buying some plastic-safe contact cleaner/lubricant and spraying the latch assembly out and opening/closing the door a few times to work it in.

2004 Volkswagon Jetta airbag deployment indicator will not go out


I had a similar problem on my 2003 VW Jetta. The airbag light lit and would not go off. If it's the same problem, you have to take it in for servicing and the tech has to turn it off.

I think it's a way for them to get you to come in for a "recommended" service if you ask me. They said it was dangerous, but it is your airbag...

Asr problem


MB has ASR,  VW now has ESP.  You posted in Jetta TDI, but say you have a SL600.   Both are slip/traction control programs and both can be manually overridden by dashboard button.  When the ASR or ESP is locked out, the light will be on all the time, maybe you can just push the button?   When driving, if this light flashes on, then ASR/ESP is trying to help get the wheel that is spinning not to.  

If the light came on after replacing parts, or a repair job,  something may be wrong with the parts (non OEM), the service or a sensor may have been damaged.  

Check with dealer for a recall for your vehicle on brake switch ... vw had a recall on these around 2002-2005.
