just to inform you guys (so that you may have reference when the same problem happens to you). i have restored full function of all the connections from the steering wheel using a rainbow wire (not the same as the original ribbon wire) purchased from deeco.
more power to all
Would you happen to have a photo of the rainbow wire for peeps like myself who are electronically challenged?
hey guys!meron bang may alam sa inyo ng upholstery shop somewhere in ortigas and makati,thanx
this is an example of the rainbow wire i used. the ones from deeco comes with 20 wires but you can split off some of the wires. our unit has 6 terminals but i decided to use two wires for each terminal. it costs P25/ft and i used a total of 6 ft.
this is not the actual picture of my unit but this is where the wire goes into. the wire is wound around the center column (the assembly is called clock spring as it look exactly like that)
this is an example of the ribbon wire for the steering wheel. ours is white but its the same type
as you can see the original is much flatter than the rainbow wire but according to one electrician i consulted, this type of wire tends to become brittle with time and is easily severed when folded. whereas the rainbow wire is more flexible.
great post, utakabo!
Very useful info, utakabo. Thanks
i hope that lubrication solves the problem. i've been traversing wet roads almost daily since the rainy season started. i have checked the power steering pump and it seems ok, no leaks, no whining sound.
pasilip ko kaya sa rapide...
