    Tilt steering wheel


    if there is a lever under the dash( next to the steering column) that you push down to loosen off the adjustment then that is how you do it. If there is no lever ,there is no way to adjust the steering wheel angle.

    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.

    1989 chevy celebrity with adjustable steering and pulsating intermitant wipers etc. Steering wheel loose and rotates in 45 degree angle from side to side and up and down.


    Well, first of all, the odds are the tilt section can be tightened back up without replacing anything. There are 3 bolts that get loose over time.
    Second, if you really do need another column, any A body GM car built between 85 and 90 will work. That includes Pontiac 6000, Buick Century, and Olds Cutlass Cierra. The only real difference is the steering wheel which you would not have to change.

    Hi, sounds very like you have a broken or sandwitched wire in your column wiring. Chances are if you have a look at the wiring from the column with a torch, you'll be able to see the problem area & rejoin any suspect wires which should fix the problem, hope this does the trick :)

    Play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment


    When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

    2004 BMW 525i Active Steering problem


    The Active Steering system uses a Papst brushless dc motor to rotate the cage (ring gear) containing the planet gears a planetary gearbox at the bottom of the steering column. The motor effectively changes the steering ratio by increasing or decreasing the amount of gearbox output rotation relative to changes in the steering-wheel angle input. The resulting ratio depends on the speed of the car. For instance, a low 10:1 ratio gives high maneuverability for parking in tight spaces, with less than two turns of the steering wheel, lock to lock. To track straight at highway speeds, where even a small steering input can produce a quick sideways acceleration, the electric drive boosts the ratio to 20:1. Cars without Active Steering typically have ratios halfway between (specifically 14.1:1 for the BMW).
    ....
    Now, if your active steering does not work , the car reverses back to power steering and the ratio is 15.1:1 so the car can be driven but the "active steering " is not working and still needs to be fixed.
    It the unit needs to be replaced and your car is not under warranty, the repair cost may reach 5000 dollars.
