When you hit the brakes, or just driving down the road ?
Most wheel balancing machines only duplicate road speeds of 40 mph. So it could be a tire or wheel.

I put over sized tires on my car and they ruined my life for 20,00 miles. Symptoms like you have. I put the tires that are called for the next time and it ran like new.

SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel

I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.

SOURCE: steering wheel shakes on highway and the front end

Has it been wrecked. If not could be the tires or could be that you have lost a weight on the rims. Have tire balanced or replace it the tires are bad or the alignment is out. Most of the times its the tires or weights have fell off the rim.

How do you know if a bad alternator is the cause of steering wheel shaking in a 2005 Chrysler Pacigica with only 149k miles?


Very unlikely a bad alternator is going to cause a steering wheel shake even if the alternator is seriously out of balance. In that case a high frequency vibration will run through almost the entire car and the alternator will soon self-destruct.

There are a few reasons why a steering wheel might shake and mostly these relate to the integrity of the front wheels and tyres, the roundness, the radial and axial run-out, the balance and the compatibility with each other and the vehicle. Problems with the wheels and tyres can further be aggravated by steering/suspension wear or misalignment, worn shock absorbers and even binding brakes or warped brake discs.

The rear wheels and tyres and suspension and brakes are also important for a smooth ride and could conceivably cause a steering wheel shake, though a different sort of shake to that caused by the fronts. In this case the vibration is often felt mostly through the seat of the pants and from the seat back.

Why is the my r124 prime mover shaking after 70km to 80 km?


If the steering wheel is vibrationg it may be that the wheels need balancing. If the whole vehicle is shaking you need to check that wheel bols are properly tightened first. You might need to get steering/suspension checked .... before there is a bad fault developing

1999 Ford Taurus, steering wheel shakes when driving due to front passanger side tire movement/problem. The tires have been rotated and still problem from that area. What could it be?


Usually a steering wheel shake is a bad tire. Any chance you have 2 bad tires on the car? Only a front tire will make the steering wheel shake.

When driving my car the steering wheel shakes


If the steering wheel starts to shake between 55-65 MPH then you need to balance the wheels. If it shakes when you press the brakes, your brake rotors are warped and need to be cut or replaced. If the steering wheel shakes at low speeds then it's possible one of your rims is bent or one of your tires is out of round. Leaving a car parked for a long time in snowy and icy roads will damage your tires, causing them to warp. Depending on which situation is causing your steering wheel to shake, have it looked at.

Brakes all 4 lock up steering wheel shakes above


OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?

If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.

Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.
