Brake light switch/left foot braking

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

On my rally car im hoping to enable left foot braking/braking while still able to use the accelerator, however unlike my other cars (older cars) the lupo cuts the power.

id heard the modern VW's with flyby wire (mainly mk4 golfs) this can be overcome by permanently connecting 2 wires on the switch, such the brake lights still work but the ecu doesnt get told the brakes are on and kill the power.

however. i have tired this, brake lights still work however it has proved unsuccessful, does anyone have any ideas on how to over come this?

 

Cheers

Nathan

Yeah same on all lupos as far as i know. You'll need to isolate the ECU from the brake switch. But it is there as an economy and safety function in case the DBW throttle goes crazy.

Just add another loom over the top and zip tie the other away somewhere.
