what do the trouble codes mean?
Do you have to hold the steering wheel more to one side to keep the car going straight? If so, then yes it needs re-alignment. Hopefully though it didnt strip a tooth or 2 on the shaft/pump.I have noticed that it seems that the rear rack turns more left than right, and when it does fault, it gives a code 5....could it somply be that the rear rack needs re-alignment? Cant be anything serious, as the system is working....
Yup, sounds like a misaligned rear shaft. Or maybe even the front part is aligned wrong.#5 is the front to rear steering ratio sensor.
yeah tell me about it. I go to chicago on a regular basis, and i always get looks when i have to pop the hood and pull a fuse just to park! I have thought about wiring a switch to disable 4ws for this very purpose. But then i should do one for the cooling fan (bad relay) too. :shrug:Just don't try parallel parking. You'll change your mind on how awesome the 4ws is after trying to park downtown somewhere:lol:
the set bolt holds the rear rack shaft at center while you tighted the coupler (smooth part or the shaft, not the side with splines) of the rear shaft and rack. Once you set everything tight, then you take out the set bolt (specific bolt that comes to a point) and put back in the standard bolt. The set bolt is directly under the shaft as it enters the rear rack.Im gonna look at it this weekend and see if its out of alignmenet....I want to get it all straightened out before I start the swap....
Looking at the factory scans, what is the set bolt? Just any bolt you can find or does it need a point on it to line up with the notch in the rack?
Ive already done that. On both of my cars.:shrug:But then i should do one for the cooling fan (bad relay) too.
Sure, if you're pulling straight in to the spot:jump: Otherwise, when backing out the back wheels are going to be poushing the back end out from the spot you want.i find it easier to parallel park with 4ws working. idk
