Smart Wheel Issues
Iím having trouble with my smart wheel. When I flashed my courtesy lights, the windshield wipers came on and I couldnít turn them off. Plus, nothing else worked on the smart wheel including the horn. So, I pulled over and shut the ignition off and the wipers stopped and stayed off after turning the ignition back on. Continued driving and everything worked fine for a few miles until I hit the resume on cruise and then windshield wipers came on again and couldnít be turned off with a dead smart wheel. I called the company and they advised it could be the clock spring which I then removed the top cover and didnít see anything obvious. I tightened the center steering wheel nut and got a little more than an eighth of a turn and also cleaned the J1 connectors with some good electrical spray. One thing Iím not sure of is the clock spring. I couldnít identify it with the center cover removed. There is a 4 wire connector in there with the wires routed down close to the center. Does anyone know what the clock spring looks like and where to get one, or even just the part number? I assume the whole steering wheel has to be removed? Weíre in Anthem, AZ right now, right outside of Phoenix. Thanks for any insight.
