2012 Honda Crv Power Steering Lock
Honda crv 2012 brought by customer complaining power steering locked while driving and show steering sign on the dashboard. Car scanned no code. Everything checked seems normal I am driving this car from last 2 days. Can anyone know or help me how to figure out why is this car steering getting locked?
Following cause we have an 09 doing the same thing. Can't duplicate it either.. No codes of any kind
When this happened did the customer recall any other information. Did dash board lights look like vehicle was just started (bulb check)? I have a contact at Honda dealer that had loose battery connections casing park condition while driving. Tell tale sign is bulb check as if just started.
...It truly looks like that is what it is doing...a bulb check (when it shouldn't be). ...Dan H. ...South Texas...
Hi Brian. I checked battery connections and talked to the customer he said it happens once or twice a month. Last time when it happened customer was coming out of freeway,no other lights were showing up on the dash except steering light.
If this vehicle has eps ( an electric motor on the steering column ) I have known them over heat when maneuvering the vehicle in a tight spot or holding the steering on full lock for to long . Conect scan tool and look for motor temp pip and monitor whilst exercising the steering. Get more info from the customer as to when the fault occurred. A quick google search will show these vehicles have a…
Not a clue about Honda but the Nissan's actually have the information about overheating the electric motor in tight parking lot maneuvers in the owners manual. Says it is a normal condition For what it is worth
Bryan, "Normal" like - don't worry about it? - or - stop taking twenty minutes to parallel park you knucklehead owner!!! ?
Yeah i contacted the dealer and they said it is a common problem. But they were not sure about which part is causing this problem. They said change the whole rack and pinion.Talked to the customer and he said it happened early in the morning while the car was parked on the driveway and the temperature was low that day.
This vehicle has electric power steering assist. In your video it looks like it loses assist, not that the steering actually locks. Connect your scan tool and watch the data stream while making the fault happen. At least it is a repeatable issue so you should be able to find the problem.
Yes you are right it's not looking instead loosing assist. I am driving from couple of days nothing happened but customer said it happens vm once or twice a month. No storage code and data look good.
Check the battery condition, connections and the alternator output and diode check. Also make sure to check for voltage drop on the main power and ground cables to electric power steering motor from the battery
Battery is new. Are connections checked and clean. Alternator is good.Voltage drop checked it's good too.
Amandeep I would pass this one to the dealer in other words I would not touch it with a barge pole ! I have a tale to share if you are sitting comfortably. A young lady with a nearly new small car made in Germany is over taking a large wagon on a U.K. motor way ( a 3 lane highway with a central barrier sepperating it from the opposite carriage way ) the eps has a fit and takes over from the…
I'd look at the steering angle data for loss of signal. Is there communication with the power steering module when it occurs? If it has a separate module... If it loses comm, then maybe the code clears at the same time?
I am curious about this one also since I recently had one with similar symptoms and could not duplicate.Thanks
