Generic readers doesn't Always give the right code, can't You MES your EPS Ecu ??

Anyway, seems like you have to concentrate on the C connector, which carries the signals from the mode selector and the power status. For this one you have to lift the blue lock and then pull the shell. Similar with the A plug, lift the yellow lock and with the B plug where the lock is black (I guess) OR is the white thing in the midle Can't see very well even with my 10 endoscope camera (ali xpress) and not really wanting to remove dash parts ;-)...

Hi Nik,

lesson for me: don't believe too fast what google says ...

C1002 is actually the fault for the power steering torque sensor and the description you gave is 100% matching the one on this site:

http://www.stuurbekrachtigingspecial...ction-assistee

They are the reference in Holland, worth a visit on their site, very interesting stuff in there ...

Cheers, Bernie.

Re: The saga coninues...

I would say so, maybe just a proxy align … As I understand the Guys from Holland just ship a replacement (rebuild) set, plug & play apparently, pre-calibrated (for center position I guess) and ready to drive. If you got a spare with same #, I'd say go ahead !!

Cheers, Bernie

Re: The saga coninues...

I looked at the part/link thanks Bernie. Its not that much cheaper than a rebuilt unit tbh..The rebuilt steering stem/ecu 186 ish..
I can get a working second hand ecu etc for 45 delivered,hence the ask..I was kinda thinking it would be a plug and play process and relatively painless.

Out of interest I asked two local garages for prices of replacement...800 and 450...

Re: The saga coninues...

If you are taking about the torque sensor I tried to replace mine when doing the ABS to ESP conversion and gave up. Mine was working but for the ESP to work I needed one with steering angle info. The main reason I gave up was that there is a huge snap ring that I could not remove and even when I disconnected the old torque sensor plug and plugged in the new one with the steering wheel angle info the EPS ecu would not give out and steering angle info (I guess the ecu are different). I ended up buying a used EPsteering column that had the steering angle sensor. Best buy a reconditioned one. The sensor wear out with time. (contact brushes)

Contact-type torque sensors use a wiper attached to the torsion bar and voltage divider attached to the rotating bridge attached to the motor shaft to measure the twist of the torsion bar. The rotating bridge uses contact brushes that connect to the sensor housing and connector to receive power, ground and transfer the voltage signal to the controller


This web site make it seem easy

but on some Italian web sites that do EPS repairs they say that when the sensor is replaced you need special diagnostic equipment to find the center point or it wont work properly

Re: The saga coninues...

Appreciate the heads up..Im not wanting to spend a lot as the cars going to be sold as soon as its fixed..

Not sure how much the car's worth,it has two dents in it and my daughters not wanting to spend money she's not likely to recoup.
I did think that spending the money to buy a reconditioned part that came with a lifetime warrenty would be a good selling point BUT its not transferable to any new owner.

So its going to be a second hand unit that gets fitted. Im still waiting on clarity IF its as simple as a plug and play process..same part numbers obvs...

Re: The saga coninues...

As the controller is CAN connected to the body computer, I'd say it will require a proxy alignement if replaced. It also needs to be 'zeroed', a new one would have a locking key that is removed after install. Ask the Holland guys about the proxy, they may answer you …

Cheers, Bernie

Re: The saga coninues...

If you get a used steering column with same part number then is is plug and play. With mine I got a used one with different part no and it was also plug and play and proxy alignment.
