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.

What makes it shakes


Sounds like bad brake pulsation, meaning warped rotors. When rotors are warped , they push the caliper piston in and out ,causing the brake pedal to pulsate and shake the steering wheel. I would start with replacing the front pads and rotors, and if you have drum brakes in the rear, have those cleaned and adjusted for a more balanced braking system.

My car is shaky every time i hit a stop light?


you should keep all four tires on the ground !!!! LOL ! your rotors or brake pads are bad. do you feel it shake in the steering wheel ? Check these three items and im sure it will fix.......1) jack front car up and try to move front tires in all directions, does it feel loose at all? if yes check tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints. 2) check brake pads for wear, heat from pads warp the rotors and cause the break pedal and steering to shake or vibrate. 3) If nothing can be found wrong with the tie rods or ball joints i recommend changing the rotors and brake pads, a pretty cheap fix.

WHEN I BRAKE BY A STOP STREET WITH MY 325TI BMW, THEN THERE IS SOME VIBRATION ON THE BRAKE PADDLE


Sounds like you may have warped front rotors. They can be felt in the brake pedal when stopping. The warpage of the rotor actually pushes the caliper piston in and out which is felt by your foot. Another vibration you may feel is the ABS system coming on if there are poor road surfaces.That feels quite a bit different than a warped rotor.

Strange vibration at the pedal when breaks lock


sounds like warped rotors, if the steering wheel also shakes then that would tell me its in the front, replace the front pads and rotors that will solve your problem.dont try resurfacing youll just have pulsating brakes again in a month or two.

Front wheels and steering wheel shake while driving


If you get a bad vibration in your steering wheel at low speeds without braking it is either a bad tire or a bad rim. If you get a vibration at speeds around 45-50+ and goes away you probably have a balance issue. If the vibration only occurs while braking then your rotors are warped. If low speeds it shakes i'd take it to a shop to check your tires.

Vibrating proplem


Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.
