Product description

From the factory, Volkswagen unfortunately did not give the Beetle a button to activate and deactivate the Traction Control System (TCS). Fortunately, the vehicle does have the ability to turn it on and off, its just lacking the button (and a few other things to make it functional). If you want to give your Beetle a button to turn on and off the traction control, USP has you covered. For your convenience, we put together a kit with all necessary parts for an easy installation of an ESP button like the GTI's have. The best part is, that the kit uses a factory VW parking assist button for a stock look!!

Comes pre-assembled for a plug and play installation!!

Excellent product! very easy to install, took about 45 minutes. the install video is now outdated, and shows "the hard way" to get it done. now there is no more splicing wires with t-taps, (on the MT6) it is just plug wires in and go! the customer service was excellent, and the product even more so. thanks a ton USP!

Advantages: I Autocross, so having undefeatable traction control was unfathomable. no more power-sapping tc, and more fun in my Beetle!

Disadvantages: the button is the stock button which looks like a parking assist, not like a traction control button. however, it looks OEM so i've got no complaints!

This kit is nicely done and worth the price. The video is extremely helpful and includes great attention to detail such as the pin locking mechanism on the purple ABS connector. I used a little liquid soap over the electrical tape while pulling the coat hanger/wire combo through the firewall to make it easier.

Advantages: Activated 2-stage traction control in a 2014 Beetle GSR with this kit and the well publicized Golf R coding modification. Exactly what I was hoping for. Now I can push the button once to deactivate TCS or hold it for a few seconds to deactivate ESC. (Not all Beetles have the same control module so 2-stage will not work on all Beetles.)

Disadvantages: Nothing. I wish Volkswagen would have included this from the factory.

Holy crap let me tell you this is worth it. Hands down the greatest $100 I've ever spent. Installing it was pretty easy, this updated kit is literally plug and play. Plug one side of the harness into the cig lighter power supply and the other into the cig lighter outlet. I didn't use the yellow wire with the pre installed male connector. Don't forget do this when your cars cool, you will burn yourself on your heat shield getting the ABS connector unlocked. Took me about a half hour and I will definitely be telling my buddies about USP Motorsports, and I'll be buying more products.

Advantages: Easy install
Plug and play wiring harness

Wonderful! Bought it at SOWO and it compliments my modifications by letting me fully utilize them.

Advantages: No more power loss and flashing lights on the dash when i get on it.

Disadvantages: Wish the button had a traction control symbol versus parking symbol.

What a breeze to install! I love not having to fear that thwack, thwack, thwack as the Traction Control kicks in while I've got my foot in the gas. Which is constantly. I love this product and got a huge return on investment.

Advantages: Ease of Use
Ease of Install
Tires spin, make squeal, me like.

Disadvantages: Nothing so far.
