Have to reset the angle sensor, I would guess

Have to check for codes & data with professional scanner,
in enhanced mode

If you changed the rack, it has to be aligned,the shop should
do what is necessary

A 5 year old vehicle should not need any of that work for years
---so why are those parts worn out?

You do both lower ball joints, not one side,like when you do a
wheel hub bearing, you do both sides

if it shakes over 50 miles per hour, it could be your front tires need balancing. and check your ball joints while you are at it. or king pins if it has that. (they are different from ball joints but serve the same purpose.)

SOURCE: steering and real bad vibration in front end

That is known as "the death wobble" for very obvious reasons. You need to install steering dampeners . They look like shocks and they mount between the drag link and the frame. They will cure the problem. Don't delay putting them on your Jeep. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Steering Wheel Locked

Being a locksmith for ten years, I have been aquainted with a number of occasions where the steering wheel gets locked up.
Always start with the least expensive option.
Question:

I'm sure this sounds silly but, have you tried turning the wheel hard right and hard left? You wouldn't believe how many times people have their tires turned to the right or left, which binds the ignition switch to the point that you can't turn the key to start the vehicle.

If the steering is in a rotational bind it can also bind the "U" joint in the steering column.

Check to make sure that you can actually operate the key cylinder and start the vehicle.

If you can operate the key cylinder of the ignition and start the vehicle, try rotating the steering wheel with the engine running, and see if that will unlock your "U"joint adjuster.

If you do all of the above and it's still unable to be adjusted, you will have to have a locksmith replace the universal joint rod in the steering column.

The main reason for these joints to fail is due to people driving with the column in an attitude of either up from the straight position, or down from the straight position.

The column is "designed" to operate from any position, BUT it causes the joint to fail due to prolonged use in an either up or down position while driving. The adjustable wheel is great for getting into and out of the vehicle, but it should always be driven in a totally straight position with NO upward or downward slant to the steering column.

I hope this will solve your problem economically.

Mercedes 2002 c180 classic abs and esp lights remain on dash is it electrical problem? or back disc pads need replacing


only an inspection can reveal which, have your brakes checked

  1. If the ESP light on a Mercedes Benz stays on, try holding the ESP button down for a few seconds. If holding ESP down for a few seconds doesn't reset the program, it's time to head to your local Mercedes dealership for a repair. More likely than not, there is some sort of error with the steering mechanism which causes the ESP light to remain on. You don't have to be alarmed but it's best to get it checked out as soon as you're able to. Most Mercedes have a four year, fifty thousand mile warranty which is, literally, bumper to bumper except for maintenance service. But if the ESP light stays on, this will almost certainly be covered.
  2. If your car goes into a spin and the ESP light does not come on, it's time to see that repair shop too. Your Mercedes electronic stability program is not working properly if the car does not take control when a spin is detected.

How do you reset a stering angle sensor


did you read the FSM/
it covers all that, and more.
or at alldata.com
did you follow all steps, including the Match marking?

ill try to find it....

here is the page that tells you what went wrong.
A service replacement clockspring is shipped with the clockspring pre-centered and with a molded plastic locking pin installed.
This locking pin should not be removed until the steering wheel has been installed on the steering column. If the locking pin is removed before the steering wheel is installed, the clockspring centering procedure must be performed.
When a clockspring is installed into a vehicle without properly centering and locking the entire steering system, the Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) data does not agree with the true position of the steering system and causes the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) system to shut down.
This may also damage the clockspring without any immediate malfunction.
Unlike some other Chrysler vehicles, this SAS never requires calibration.
However, upon each new ignition ON cycle, the steering wheel must be rotated slightly to initialize the SAS.
Determining if the clockspring/SAS is centered is also possible electrically using the diagnostic scan tool.
Steering wheel position is displayed as ANGLE with a range of up to 900degrs.
Refer to the appropriate menu item on the diagnostic scan tool.
Before starting this procedure, be certain to turn the steering wheel until the front wheels are in the straight-ahead position and that the entire steering system is locked or inhibited from rotation.

The clockspring may be centered and the rotor may be rotated freely once the steering wheel has been removed.
(at the least, read the rack R&R pages first)

How to reset sensor


The steering angle sensor is faulty and should be replaced. Once replaced it will need to be coded with a special tool. There is not a way to reset the sensor without the special tool.

Esp driving


location not stated, or road conditions. nor if in 4low , nor if the ESP switch is off or on. Ask Suzuki for help (lol) or any ASE shop.

it's not magic, it can not give traction , if none.
on ice slow down. (esp can do that too. slow you,brake you and even
shift gears in the transmission)

are you in 4wd? or high 4Low, esp is inactive. (or limited)
read the operators guide. (if lost, get one now)
read the page on driving on ice.
chapters 5,6,7.
have you had any off these conditions , related to ESP, this a
is the ESP light acting wrong, or CEL check engine light running?
are all dash lamps (warning) showing correctly per the opr. guide?
ESP & ABS are vary complex, (not magic)


quote from the servise manual. (car battery dead or disconnected?)
ESP control module
When ESP control module is removed / installed, do
not use impact wrenches which generate shock or
impact to avoid damaging sensors in ESP control
module.
Note that Calibrate word here..!
When any of the following operation is done, calibrate
steering angle sensor, G sensor and master cylinder
pressure sensor (in ESP control module) referring to
"Sensor Calibration in Section 4F
- When battery or dome fuse is removed. (
a low battery or weak)
- When steering angle sensor is replaced.
- When ESP control module is removed.
- When yaw rate / G sensor assembly is removed.



read this, it covers this system well,

http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_esp.htm

read page 7-2 here (the do not drive words)
http://www.autodealertools.com/quickQuote/manuals/2007/Grand%20Vitara.pdf

this car has no center differential. (read limits there of)
are you using chains on the tires?
oper guide page 4-6 , read that yet?

If the vehicle speed is greater thanapproximately 30 km/h (19 mph), the ESP systems (other than ABS) will turn
on automatically and the light will go out.
When the transfer switch (if equipped) is
turned to the "4L LOCK" position, the

ESP systems (other than ABS) will be canceled automatically. The light will come on and stay on.
• If the ESP systems operate continu-ously such as when driving on slippery roads, the traction control functions of the ESP systems may be canceled temporarily to avoid overheating the brake pads, and the light will come on. After a short period of time, the ESP.

All you have to do after replacing the battery and the bas/esp light comes on is drive the vehicle. While your driving around is will allow the steering angle sensor to relearn. That's only if it says "bas/esp see owners manual" displayed on the cluster.

Recode steering angle sensor


For recode the steering angle sensor you must connect a diagnosis scantool to the data link connector of the car in order to access the ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit), in other words programm again the steering angle sensor in the ESP ECU. Select the steering angle sensor programming (learning) menu, and follow the steps: put steering wheel in straight direction, then turn steering wheel to the left direction less 15 degrees, then to the right direction less 15 degrees, put steering wheel in straight direction again until the programming was done. Then the ESP light will turns OFF.
