Good home mechanics can do most of their own work — but we advise they steer clear of any safety items. By posting the year, make, model and engine near the beginning of your help request, followed by the symptoms no start, high idle, misfire etc. It might be something as simple as a loose connector on it though. However if it is holden who fitted the new tyres then. A scan tool can be used to obtain this data in degrees.
Im just wondering if you had any idea of the cost of this repair or was yours a warranty claim? Self-Calibration Some newer vehicles can auto calibrate by having the wheel turned from lock to lock and then centered and cycling the key. If you store equipment with untreated gas in the tank, it can lead to engine damage. Supplied and fitted a new sensor as required. Similar thing happened to my wife's 2008 diesel Captiva the other week. It has returned with the same fault. Furthermore, there are detailed descriptions of safety equipment, features, production changes, recalls and common faults or problems. Do you have fresh, clean fuel in the tank? Does that sound logical, or am I sounding like someone on drugs? Start by measuring the fuel pressure and checking whether you have bright white-bluish spark at all four plugs.
If not you can try the alternative. It started straight away with the new rear tyres fitted. When it detects one wheel spinning faster than the others, or one wheel locking up, it activates the traction control system. Diesels that are overly noisy may be due for a major service, or an overhaul. Holden is well represented Australia wide, with dealers in even the smallest of towns. I'm wondering if it just needs time to reset itself as it was taking time to come on after it got sort of reset the other day :shrug: Gonna take it back out in a minute anyway as I need to get some fuel.
To see a review from AustralianCar. I am under the impression that this is a warranty issue. The cluster always has more than one steering position sensor for redundancy and to confirm data. As always, good cars can fall into bad hands so it still pays to have a professional inspection before forking out your hard-earned. I mentioned it came up with the steering angle sensor range error and he reckoned that was just the tracking making it throw a fit as well. Check under the bonnet for signs of weeping at the petrol pump. Look for damage to the front wheels as the Epica is a bigger car than some drivers realise and the wheels may have skimmed the kerb more than once.
I'd get the battery and charge rate tested first up and go from there. Holden have already charged me lots of money And you paid even though it wasn't fixed? I know that we all got on perfectly fine 15 years ago without all these driver aids, but a lot of modern cars are designed to work with them and the brake bias etc is all wrong when they're disabled. . Holden Commodore Engine Specifications: Engine Type : Multi-Cylinder Engine Cylinder Type : V-Type Engine Engine Air Intake Process : Naturally Aspirated Your Holden Commodore engine control system detects a problem, the computer stores the diagnostic trouble code C0460 in its memory. Just a thought, when you clouted the kerb last time and did damage did the light come on then? If the vehicle is under warranty, then I'd imagine a faulty wheel speed sensor would be covered. Does anyone know how I can fix this or what the problem is? Cheers mate, Phil Ah I have been caught out again! All the orange lights stay on while driving. Had it into holden city Bundaberg.
Because while the lights vary in appearance from vehicle to vehicle, all have the same basic meaning: There's a problem with the car's emissions system. If you need to dig into your doors, dash or console, Alldatadiy. But in many cases, it means at minimum that you'll be visiting the car dealer to locate the malfunction and get the light turned off. It is a 2011 Holden Epica re-badged Daewoo Tosca. Sure your car hasn't been flood damaged? But seriously, I guess it's either a common component which has failed — even an electrical regulator can do funny things like this. After having a brief look, nothing appeared bent or broken, and it was fine after that, other than the steering wheel being a bit off centre. So i'll keep yous posted and crossing my fingers this time hoping this has fixed my issue.
I want to keep this on topic and relevant information. Insurance costs are generally low. We've listed all relevant models here. I connected the oscilloscope to the sensor wiring - it has 6 wires. It all looks good, nothing wrong.
If it's empty, fill it up and go! With the wheel straight, the voltage is low, but it increases as the wheel is turned away from center. Yah know theore I look at this I would say it is some kind of comm problem the yaw rate sensor relies on different signals the ebcm and steering angle sensor rely on inputs apart from powers and grounds I would verify topology and make sure everything is communicating and also I am not actually an auto tech yet. Driving it back home seems to be better however i haven't taken it through the course it normally fails on. Also, it is a good idea to perform a lock-to-lock turn to complete the calibration. Jacked it up properly, whipped the wheel off and had a poke around and we can't see anything bent, broken, unplugged, damaged or anything. So, what do we reckon then? Its quicker and easier in the long run. I went to do the same thing last year and fit brand new ones to the rear as the front didn't need changing yet.
