SOURCE: G25 wheel not responding

Hi Guys, I have found your solution. If all the buttons work, but the steering does not, it's because the buttons are powered by the USB bus. The electric engine of the wheel need really juice from the power supply. I have just bought a G25 and all the buttons worked fine, but turning the wheel was completely undetected. The power supply was cold as a supermodel heart. I have just put a new power supply and now all the things work perfectly. By the way, my thanks to all the other guys that posted the G25 issues, it really helped me out.

Enjoy your driving !

SOURCE: G25 wheel not responding

Hey! I had a similar problem! Only the weel tried to calibrate itself, but itjust "twitched"

So I tried replacing the power cord with a similar one from an older wheel. Didn't work for me.

I opened it up and voilá, same problem as "epicname"! I tightened the screws on the optical sensor and put it back together. Now it works like a treat! So i guess if it's the power cord it won't react, If it's the optical sensor it will twitch, notice it doesn't get a signal and give up from there.

I don't know if this will really help anyone, as they would just send it back to the shop and get it fixed for free. But couldn't find the reciept, and often find it's better to fix things myself than to let the local shop send it to their usual place.

THIS IS JUST A LAST RESORT!! ALWAYS TRY TO GET THE WHEEL REPLACED OR FIXED PROFESSIONALLY!!! 

Remove all the screws underneath, even the larger black ones. Remove the steering wheel by unscrewing the bolts on the front panel and the three larger screws under the little circuit board in the wheelhub.

Remove the bonnet. theres a black box on the left engine wich contain the sensor. If it's loose you're able to rattle it. If you're not, the sensor is most likely not the problem.
Unscrew the mainboard and remove the bracket it sits on.
Now the Force Feedback rig should be loose. 
Flip it over and pop off the little black cap on the sensor(it's just pushed on)
Put some locktite on and fasten the two screws that hold the sensor mount (unscrew and remove the sensor board so you can get to the last screw)

Put everything back together.

If you haven't rechecked all your connections I'd give that a go. Pull them all out and plug them in again to make sure they are tight. Also make sure none of the cables has been squashed or crimped in any way. If that doesn't fix it then you probably have bad electronics inside and the wheel might need replacing.

I just bought a g25 gaming wheel and the wheel is very grindy and noisy when turning left. Is there a way to quiet it down or at least make it as quiet as turning to the right? Thanks.


I dont think so. The g25 is gear driven and has always been cited for its loud noises. It seems odd that it doesnt make as much noise going to the right, but i can assure you that the one i had was a noisy wheel. Other than that they are great. Fanatec makes a comparible wheel that is belt driven and not noisy at all but i doubt you are looking for new after just purchasing one :)

I have Logitech G25 Racing Wheel ,pedals,gear and buttons working ok but steering does nothing!It is recognized by usb connection but not works. I read all the solutions here but nothing helps.


The best way to tell is to do a calibration test and if it is not recognizing your wheel than you may want to send it in to logitech. The g25 is a gear driven wheel and maybe something went wrong with them on the inside.

Hi, my logitech g25 wheel was working great on gran turismo 5 up until now. Plugged it in today and noticed the shifter isnt even powering on, plus after a few laps the pedals have stopped working aswell,...

Also make sure none of the cables has been squashed or crimped in any way. If that doesn't fix it then you probably have bad electronics inside and the wheel might need replacing.

Turning the wheel does not turn in the game All other functions work but the force feedback doesnt work either The logitech installation program also doesnt respond to inputs on the steering axis


Hi,
You might want to call the Logitech Customer Care, try on another computer, if the problem persist, then you should get a replacement for hardware failure. This is covered by warranty terms.



Thanks and have a nice day

Wheel keeps turning round by itself


Hi, If this happen when you plug the G25 into a usb and power supply this is normal behavior, it recalibrate itself.
This should happen for maximum 15/20 seconds. If the G25 keeps turning round itself after, then you should contact Logitech support for a replacement, this is an hardware failure that is covered by the warranty. http://www.logitech.com/en-us/contact Thanks and have a nice day

How to connect the g25 gear shifter to the g25 podium unit


I had the same problem yesterday. If you look at the setup diagram (http://www.onpole.com/playseats/playseat_logitech_g25_gearshift_holder-c159645p159651.html), you will see that the under carriage is removed from the g25 gear shift. I removed the two screws, and then worked a flathead screwdriver into the seam. I literally had to break this section off. It took a significant amount of force. However, it did not otherwise harm the unit, and now it fits perfectly onto my podium. Problem solved!
