  1. Could well be. I had the same clicking noise and that was resolved. Best to ask your mechanic though.
  2. Hi, For anyone still interested in this, I had the same issue for the past four years on my 1994 R32 GT-R. The HICAS light would come on a few minutes after driving and the steering would go dead heavy. I had Nissan and another workshop run the HICAS diagnostics multiple times - no problems: the back wheels did their flappy thing and everything. Finally, just this week Custom Importz in Lonsdale SA found and fixed the problem. There were actually three faults: 1. The speed sensor in the back of the instrument cluster was faulty. 2. The steering angle sensor was faulty 3. (Not such an issue). One of the rear solenoids was faulty (this did show in up diagnostics but replacing it not fix the issue until the above two were fixed). For anyone having this problem, follow the advice above to run the HICAS diagnostics, check fluid levels etc, but also get your shop to check these sensors in around the console and steering column. They were the "missing link" that did not show up in diagnostics. Glenn

  4. Update on this for anyone interested. I've owned the car a few years now and still no resolution to this issue. Within a few minutes of switching the car on I get zero power steering, followed a few minutes later by the HICAS light coming on. I know the HICAS is all working (passes all diagnostics) so this continues to be a mystery of the Universe, right up there with Dark Energy and Dark Matter. I'm calling this Dark Power Steering Failure.
  5. In your third picture (menu items for the top button) you have: Engine Start (エンジンスタート) Engine Stop (エンジン停止) Check the Current Status
  6. Hi. I've got the same system on my R34. Have you had any luck getting hold of the manual? I have a Japanese friend I can ask for the translations. I'll start with the images you sent. Glenn
  7. Only one I can get hold of is 28505 04U50. Will have to try that.
  8. An update on this. Main North Nissan sent the car to Clisby who took the HICAS ECU apart and cleaned it up a bit, but still faulty. I'd like to track down another ECU but the ones on ebay have quite different part numbers. My has part number 28505 12U00 and serial 4623. I can't find anything like this. Would a ECU with number 28505 04U00 work? Does anyone know how to interpret these part numbers? Was my 1994 unique in having this HICAS ECU part number?
  9. By "proper scan tool" you mean something that any Nissan workshop would have or are these some more specialised? Anyone in Adelaide want to recommend the best mechanic/workshop or Nissan service centre to work on this problem? I've had other work done at Main North Nissan, but they don't seem that good e.g. didn't know how to adjust the air/fuel mixture on a Datsun 280ZX!
  10. Hi. Car had a aftermarket steering wheel, but I swapped it for a stock one. The problem remained. Just tried several times to invoke HICAS diagnostics mode but it just won't play ball. I guess this might indicate a faulty HICAS computer as mentioned in above posts?
  11. speedo works fine. Will try the HICAS debug mode and report back. Thanks.
  12. <p>Hi,</p> <p>My 1994 R32 GT-R has two possibly related problems. After driving for about five minutes the power steering basically shuts down and the steering is heavy as if it has no assistance, at about the same time the HICAS light comes on.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>The power steering fluid level is normal as is the reservoir in the boot. My mechanic says the power steering pump is not showing any obvious signs of problems and the car is genuine low mileage and generally mechanically excellent.</p> <p> </p> <p>Any suggestions, before I take this to Nissan?</p> <p> </p> <p>Note that the steering returns to normal when you switch the car off and start again though I have not worked out how long it takes to "reset".</p>

  14. Ok, so what is the next steps? I'd like to see the register as a section of SAU. It would have the following: List of eligible rare Skyline models including history and technical specs on each Register section where owners submit details of their cars Search capability So who wants to take the lead on getting this set up? I am happy to coordinate the information gathering, but I have no idea on how to get the SAU side of things set up. Glenn.
