  1. When handling the steering column assembly.

    1. Avoid any impact to the steering column assembly, especially to the motor or the torque sensor. Replace with a new one if dropped or subjected to any severe impacts.

    2. Do not pull the wire harness when moving the steering column assembly.

    3. When the steering column assembly or other steering-related parts have been removed and either reinstalled or replaced, perform steering center point adjustment (zero point calibration).

  2. When disconnecting or reconnecting the connectors.

    1. When disconnecting connectors related to the electronic motor power steering system, turn the ignition switch to ON (the engine is stopped), center the steering wheel, turn the ignition switch to OFF, and then disconnect the connectors.

    2. When reconnecting connectors related to the electronic motor power steering system, make sure that the ignition switch is turned to OFF. Center the steering wheel and then turn the ignition switch to ON (the engine is stopped).

      NOTICE:
      Do not turn the ignition switch to ON when the steering wheel is not centered
    3. If the above operations are not carried out correctly, the steering center point (zero point) will deviate, causing a difference in steering effort between right and left turns. If there is a difference in the steering effort between right and left turns, perform the steering center point adjustment (zero point calibration).
