Hello,

Hoping someone can help me.

I disconnected the battery on my car for more than an hour and the yellow steering wheel appeared when I reconnected it. The car was jacked up with the wheels turned. At this point I had a rear left speed sensor problem.
I have since replaced the rear bearing and speed sensor and the ABS light went out for a while.
I have tried resetting the steering angle sensor using the ross tech procedures with no luck and now lost power assist and all power steering.
I have taken car to garage and they cannot reset so car still has no power steering. The garage has suggested it could be the built in sensor in the steering rack and would require a new rack?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Alistair

Hi welcome,

Can you confirm exactly what fault codes you have now. The VCDS pdf is clouding matters and its late at night...

Is it just the two codes on the ABS, nothing else has been touched on the car and the battery if fully charged?

The original fault is fixed with no codes?

Therefore the ABS is complaining that steering angle adaptions are lost?

Sorry for more questions....

Hi, thanks for reply

Codes are as follows;

2 Faults Found:02546 - Steering Limit Stop 005 - No or Incorrect Basic Setting / Adaptation Freeze Frame: Mileage: 124830 km Temperature: 15.0°C Voltage: 13.40 V Voltage: 13.20 V
00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85) 000 - - Freeze Frame:


2 Faults Found:00287 - ABS Wheel Speed Sensor; Rear Right (G44) 008 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent01486 - System Function Test Activated 000 - -



The esp light is constantly on and so is the yellow steering wheel light.

The rear left abs sensor has been fixed and no fault codes for this appear.

I have run the car and looked at the wheel speeds and the rear right one is fluctuating slightly. maybe replacing the bearing and sensor will allow me to reset the power steering? surprised the garage did not pick this up.


bought the car a couple of months ago only to find black tape in the abs and esp warning lamps in the dash after locking up on a wet road...

any help with this would be great

thanks

Alistair

Alarm bells are now ringing loudly. Did you buy this from a dealer/car sales or privately? If you bought it from dealer or car sales, take it back, tell them what you found. If no joy, inform trading standards.

If you bought privately, not much you can do other than have it repaired properly.

I would start, as previously stated with an up to date version of GENUINE VCDS, read codes, investigate possible causes, repair as necessary, check in live data etc.......

Please don't take on ABS or steering faults unless you have the correct skill base. As I say to some of my customers, if your car fails to start in the morning, it's unfortunate. If it fails to brake or steer properly, it could be fatal.

Agree with Robski, Mctech and Mike.


Not checked on your exact car BUT i,m sure the steering angle sensor is just under the steering wheel. (photo cell Type)

Guys,

thanks for your responses.

unfortunately bought privately.

garage suggested a new steering rack at over 1000 pounds however I do not think this is the issue as steering worked fine before disconnecting battery. flywheel has started vibrating through the car to.

just one of those bad ones I think

The right rear wheel / ABS fault code needs to be looked first. Check the codes with RossTechWiki.

It an 'implausible' signal - not 'no signal' - when they are solved the steering angle sensor should recalibrate provided the procedure is done correctly.

If you don't have the knowledge or equipment to diagnose the RR fault then find another garage VW specialist.

Are you getting a speed reading from the RR?

I did the rear wheel bearing on a late 8P A3 today which is the same as the Golf 5. It was showing implausible signal and when it was off I could see the magnetic ring was corroded. The steering light often comes on when the battery has been disconnected, find somewhere safe to drive the car and drive on full lock then the other full lock. Stop and turn the steering to full lock and hold, then the other full lock and hold. After another short drive the light should go out.

Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

Ok so I changed the rear wheel bearing and abs sensor. Carried out the steering angle sensor tests from ross tech website and abs/esp function test. Yellow steering wheel light now out and power steering back, abs light now out and esp light out. I can believe it....I have fixed something.

Thanks all for your help.
