Unplug the four-pin potentiometer connector from the bottom of the steering column near the firewall (engine side). Problem gone forever in my car... just have full assist at all times. Much better than having scary steering through curves.So is there anything I can do besides just getting used to it lol? I can't deal with having stiff steering one day, loose the next. Not to mention feeling like my car is sliding on ice every time I go to take a curve or change lanes. There has to be a solution.
And you haven't experienced anything bad yet until it happens to you on ice or snow covered off ramp curve!!!
I give GM a 0 out of 10 for using a potentiometer on the steering column instead of an LVDT for this variable effort steering system.
