Let’s take a closer look at the sensors which make up EPS systems, and how they operate.
If the calibration process can’t be completed, it will set a code for the steering angle sensor.
John Gardner produced a series of videos with Babcox Media to give a detailed look into what goes into complex car systems.
I am convinced that this is the only way for the industry to keep moving forward.
Hunter trainer Dave Fox and Andrew Markel discuss the steps required to reset or calibrate the steering angle sensor.
When doing your pre-alignment inspection, always check and set tire inflation pressures.
Modern vehicles need to know the difference between what the driver “wants” and what the vehicle is actually “doing.” The vehicle uses sensors that measure steering angle, brake pedal position and throttle angle to know where the driver wants the vehicle to go.
The 2008-2017 Chevrolet Traverse, Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave are all based on the Lambda platform and represent a large portion of GM vehicles. These vehicles can be front- or all-wheel drive.
ASE certified technician Andrew Markel discusses the importance of recalibrating the steering angle sensor after disconnecting the battery in a vehicle. Sponsored by Standard.
Diagnosing electric power steering systems requires an understanding of voltage, current and loads. Also, a technician must understand how the modules and sensors work together to determine the level of assist.
Chances are you will never crack open a steering angle sensor (SAS) cluster to repair it. But, this sensor should not be a mystery. To be effective at ABS and stability control diagnostics, knowing how sensors measure angles and information is critical.
