G6 Electric Power Steering Column
Posted to Technical Tips Forum on 7/4/2007 47 Replies

I thought some might be interested in seeing the electric power steering column from a G6. This was an 05 and his complaint was "jerky steering at times". He also had a Power Steering warning message. Tech 2 yielded a C0545 symptom 00 for torque sensor out-of-range. It's looking for no more than 4.75V or no less than .25V on a 5 volt reference. Turning the wheel slowly did show scan readings as low as .1V and as high as 4.9V, the torque and steering position sensors are builtin to the column. It was quite reasonable, 300 beans list price. Job went very easily, disconnect and pull the old column.

Swap switch, motor/module assembly to the new column.

Reinstall, run a quick setup with the Tech 2, you're done. One more thing, these steering wheels have slots for a puller, but every one I have done just pulls off with slight pressure. Nice.
