SOURCE: steering problem

check your power steering belt. it may have broke or slipped off the pulley. if it seems ok check your fluid level. if it is still at normal operating level for hot or cold then your power steering pump may have just seized up and you may have to replace it.

SOURCE: My traction control on my 99 Merc Grand Marquis

Some differentials have a speed sensor in the Differential casing. You may want to go to Autozone for exact info.

Most likely it is debris from the Emergency brake pads on the rear drums. The back rotors have a drum built into the reverse side.

The traction control sensors work with the ABS and when the rotation of the wheel is different from side to side, the system activates the Traction control. This applies the rear brake to a single wheel and can wear out the disc pad. The Trac control also can throttle down the engine by choking off the air intake.

Most likely all the debris is spinning at different RPMs and is simulating wheelspin. The sensors can be manually cleaned as well as the large hub "star" which the sensors get their reading from. You will see when you get it apart.

1999 For Explorer XLT , 4.0 liter SOHC, AWD 4x4 , the front right wheel wobble's at any speed


Could be loose lugs/ not torqued to spec. , bad wheel bearing, bad ball joint(s), bad steering arm joint, bad rack and pinion power steering unit, or other steering components. Check lugs first, loosen and retighten while slightly jacked up to take some pressure off of the wheel use a torque wrench set to 100 ft lbs. Then raise wheel about and inch off the floor, use a crowbar to pry up on the wheel several times while observing your ball joints for excessive movement. Very much play at all, replace ball joints, works better to replace them as a pair, top and bottom. If OK, raise wheel a bit further, and grab the top and bottom of the wheel and push/pull in and out to check for play in the wheel bearing. Pretty much any play, replace wheel bearing. If ok, do the same with a side to side motion while observing the steering control arm. Look for play. Play in the joint, replace joint. Play in other steering components, replace suspect component. That's about all the stuff could make the wheel wobble unless the rim itself is bent.

Traction control on


Is this noise you're talking about coming from one of the front wheels? If it is and is louder when driving at speeds say 25-45 mph while turning the steering wheel from side to side I would say you're probably dealing with a front wheel bearing issue the noise is the bearing and the reason the lights are on is because the computers for both abs and traction control are receiving incorrect wheel speed from the side that is loose/bad.

A speed sensor in the rear differential is bad, resulting in engagement of traction lock mode. Have the diff. serviced with friction modifier additive. Damage to traction lock friction plates can occur if not serviced soon (expensive)

Tiguan horn not working


Hello! Does the vehicle have a Multi-traction Steering wheel option? If it does, check Fuse B36 in Fuse panel B...If the fuse is good, since it is still under warranty, the Multifunction Steering Wheel Module is suspect...If the vehicle does not have the Steering Wheel Multi-traction option, the steering wheel return springs are suspect...Either way, I'd take it back to the dealer...If I can locate a Recall or Technical Service Bulletin that addresses the issue I'll send it to you...However Volkswagen is rather tight lipped about their problems, not to mention the fact that the vehicle debuted in Europe in 2008 and in the USA in 2009...Therefore it is a fairly new design...Guru...Saailer

Steering hard to turn to the left like power steering is out but turns ok to the right. Checked power steering fluid. It is OK


bad steering problems,,your steering rack most likely,but,have you recently been stuck in ditch? when wheels are straight, look at front of car when parked. do wheels look funny? one going one way, and the other going the other? may be alignment. is it leaking any fluid on either side of the front of the car? drivers side? passenger side? if it's not out of alignment,,,wheels out of alignment,,the steering rack is the problem. it may be faulty. if not leaking fluid,it may still be bad. first i would make a visual test look under the vehicle while someone turned the steering wheel to right and left while car is in park,emergency brake on!! look at the steering arms while they turn the steering wheel from right to left. no fluid leaks? any resistance in turning the wheel? any leaks,if so,go to leak and repair with steering line replacement.no leaks? suspect a bad steering rack. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com i love to volunteer

There a yellow triangle light on dash


This triangle might be the warning light that the traction control system is switched off. to switch traction control back on again, locate the button to the lower right hand side of the steering wheel, down beside the headlamp levelling switch. The button should read VSA OFF. With the engine running press this button and the lamp should go out. Note that in slippery conditions when the front wheels start to spin this triangle will flash as the traction control kicks in. Hope this helps. Stuartie.

Service traction system


Hi mzcongeniali, I have a 2001 Montana that had this same problem just a few months ago.Most likely the problem is that one of the traction sensors has gone bad. The sensor is part of the wheel bearing and you will have to replace the whole wheel bearing in order to replace the sensor. They are found on the front wheel bearings on both sides. You might have only one that is bad or both could be bad. If you want you could get a used one from a auto salvage yard or buy one brand new. If you have an all wheel drive then you will want to check all four wheel bearings to find the bad one. I hope this helps.

Traction control light stays on


If you're not getting an OBD (on board diagnostic) code, and it is constantly flashing, then the system needs to be calibrated at the dealer. This occurs when you replace or disconnect/reconnect a component of the traction control system, i.e., the sensors (shared with the ABS system), to the steering wheel position sensor, or the yaw sensors, etc. If you have it calibrated and it comes back on, you've got a poor connection at one of the components. The prime suspect here is the clock spring in the steering wheel, aka "sliding contact" in the steering column behind the steering wheel. This provides power to everything in the steering wheel, inccluding the steering wheel position sensor. When this goes bad, it is tantamount to disconnecting and/or reconnecting the steering wheel position sensor. Fords are famous for sliding contact failure. Usually, you'll also have other issues with steering wheel components, such as the horn, cruise control, radio volume, air bag ("high resistence" OBD code), etc.
