  1. ABS coding is not updated from auto to manual.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a car with just ASR (no ESP). I'm swapping auto to manual. I need to change ABS coding from 31 to 30 (V6 engine). I guess I don't need to login for that. Somehow everything else (engine/CAN gateway) is re-coded but ABS value stays the same. What's wrong?
