Audi A4 Steering

audi electromechanical steering problems

I suspect either a faulty new battery or one which is underpowered. Has any one else experienced this weird pulsating issue on the new 2013 Audi A4 with electric steering? I do the left turn first, than right turn. If you don't have vcds you can check the vcds map to see if someone is local enough to scan for beer tokens. The part is only available from main dealers and will require coding at an additional cost. I am thinking of claiming on my car insurance if the bill is that high.

New battery, now power steering light!!?

audi electromechanical steering problems

I don't know if this will hijack the thread, but I feel like I have the same problem but not in the turns. Leave the engine running and do not move the steering wheel. Steering wheel would not turn. Well a small update, but nothing much to tell. As speed increases, the speed of the electric motor and thus the power assist decrease. However, I a m reluctant to accept due to concern of potential safety issue.

Loss of power steering after disconnecting battery

audi electromechanical steering problems

The power steering control unit uses electric power assisted steering to support you in driving the vehicle. Audi told them to replace the steering shaft first. The system is linked with a Steering column shaft which is what the steering wheel is fixed to at the user-end. Problem seems to be that the sensors in the steering rack that tell the electric assist motor the position of the wheels and which way to boost the steering, left or right, are out of alignment. Stop with the wheels pointing straight. The initial purchasing cost of a second-hand used part is relatively cheaper but this will also require programming at an additional cost and with the units being such common failures, you could end up back where you started with steering faults all over again.

Power steering

audi electromechanical steering problems

Do not drive the vehicle if it does not have any steering, or if the power steering is completely out. Vehicle has been repaired by Audi for a similar issue just on 23 oct 2013. They explained that if I were driving the vehicle at the time of the failure that it would have been very difficult to steer the car to safety. I tried different drive mode, comfort, auto, dynamic. Audi has so many inbuilt sensors and yet there was no indication something is wrong.

Steering jerking when turning

audi electromechanical steering problems

Judging by what you've described it sounds like it's the power steering control module. Turned off the engine and restarted after a couple of mins and noticed, message on the dashboard indicating alternator fault. Reporting this to the dealer has resulted in their acknowledgement of the problem, taking my information and stating they will contact me as soon as Audi has a permanent fix and if I do not hear back from them within 30 days to reach back out to them. You will also need to hold the high beams on with the key on to bring the ecm alive so you communicate with a scan tool. Turning the car off and back on will reset the issue and the occurrences are random.

Red Steering Wheel Warning Light

This resulted in the power steering being completely disabled. Same seems to be the problem with the Q5. The first Display Field should show a value between -1. Another issue was whistling sound from side mirror. Then I did some research and saw that this steering issue is a real problem with Audi Q5 and sq5, but only the sq5 has had a recall. The original wheels are 225x45x17 the steelies are 195x65x15.

They gave me a brand new A4 loaner, so that was fine.

Audi Q5 general Steering Problems

He told me that since febuary, it is an official problem studied by the design office. Hoping it comes back in one piece - will update when I hear more. Kind of hard to explain, but when I am keeping the wheel straight, there seems to be something preventing me from holding it straight. We carry stock for the following models: Model. The vehicle was not repaired. If so, would reconnection of battery turn it on or does this have to be done by diagnostics? Kind of hard to explain, but when I am keeping the wheel straight, there seems to be something preventing me from holding it straight.
