Race game starts and cars make a hard right and crashes
On my son's PS 2 He starts any game and it acts like the controller buttons are being held down.
The choices for cars, tracks, etc are shown but the highlighted curser rolls over all of the choices (like it's scanning). If you can get past that point as soon as the counter counts down to start the race the car IMMEDIATELY makes a hard turn to the right and crashes. The controllers don't control. I have tried every conceivable combo, ie. only 1 controller, swaped controllers, rebooted game, tried different games, etc. It seems to meit is in the console itself. Is there a master reset on the console? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Re: race game starts and cars make a hard right and...
The controller is the problem, not the system so een if there were a master reset it wouldnt work for the controller. Is it a turbo controller? Try hittingg the clear button on the underside of the controller if so. If not, you need to buy a new controller.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your PS3 lags or freezes when loading content from the hard drive, the drive either lacks free space or is faulty. To create more space, try removing items from your hard drive or getting a new hard drive with a higher storage capacity. A faulty hard drive must be replaced.
It could be the game not being compatible with the wheel, but it could be the wheel too. Ask the friend you got it from which games he played with it and see if you can borrow that game. Test it with that game to see if it works. If so, the Cars game is not compatible with the wheel. If this is not the case, the wheel is faulty. You can try to clean it by disassembling it and cleaning it from the inside, but many analog controllers can break pretty easily, and if that's the problem, the wheel is pretty much dead. I hope that the Cars game is not compatible.

Ok, unless you want to console into your PS3 and manually try to clean it or check to see if a virus is making it act up. I would recommend resetting it to default factory settings.
Hard Reset procedure for the PS3
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System >
Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a
last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format
via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need
to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t
detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully if there is or was any type of virus it will defiantly be removed. If there is some other type of problem having to do with the hardware, then you are going to have to send it to Sony for a replacement.
this is because the 2 pedals are acting as buttons. so wen u press them then computer thinks ur pressing a button all way down instead of rotating an axis. you have to somehow find a way to tell computer that you have pedals and that the axis have to be callibrated in control panel. i have no idea how this is done though.
You need to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM or RESTORE PS3 SYSTEM. Follow this guide.
HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM
1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode). 2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet). 3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off. 4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button. 5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that. 6. After connecting the controller press PS button. 7. You are now in the recovery menu. 8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3. 9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive. 10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.
