HowTo Disable the ASR

I asked earlier on the question : How to disable the ASR system.

Here´s the answer that i got. A guy from Finland contributed with it, so our very warm thanks goes out to you Antti.
You asked for how to disable the ASR-system: unplug the round connector plug in the side off the ASR-pump and the automatic failure check will force the system to go off. The same happens if any of the plugs belonging to ABS or ASR systems are off. ABS and ASR systems use same pressure pumps and sensors so you can´t disable just the ASR; ABS will turn off also. If you want to turn off just the ASR function, Brabus has made a special off switch for it to be placed in the middle console.

If you haven´t tuned up your SEC, it still won´t brush rubber on asfalt because of the power transmission ratio, unless of course if you want to brake your automatic transmission (=rise engine rounds to 6000 rpm on neutral and then pull drive gear on); I´ve tested.Notify that the ASR system has a type malfunction, that is not widely recognised: if any of the wheel rotation sensors fails, specially in front (too old, oxidated, broken), ASR might think that other wheels are rotating at different speed than the others, so the car thinks that you are in a side slide and pushes back the gas pedal with tempomat servo engine! This is also the reason why you should never place different size tyres on the front and rear axels.


The front sensors are rather expensive to replace and they needed to be replaced in my car at 150 000 km five years ago.Notify also that the driving shafts differ from usual in an ASR modell: new ones cost honey and they need to be replaced time to time. In my car they´ve lasted 200 000 km each. They get tired because the ASR function forces by braking the rear wheels the hole engine power to concentrate on driving shafts, when driving on slippery surfaces. You can self notice this by the back of the car lowering when it´s braking your rear wheels. The forces tear the driving shafts on opposite directions when driving on slippery and unslippery surfaces, so it´s obvios that metal gets tired at use. What I´ve learned about this I never accelerate on full power when driving far away from the nearest MB work shop. The brake of one driving shaft has stopped my journey already two times without any previous warning signal than a great final PAM.
