Problem With Hicas On R32 Gtst


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was driving today and all of a sudden the hicas light came on, nothing happened at first then after a while the steering got heavy and would jerk when i turned. the other weird thing is that there's a tapping noise coming from under my feet which i can hear and feel when i turn the steering. I am at a loss as to what the problem could be i ran a search but didnt turn up anything useful any help would be much appreciated

Hui,

Usually when my light came on it was caused by low fluid level in the steering resevior, check that. as for the knocking noise, perhaps a steering shaft universal is starting to fail of is hitting something, check also the steering shaft rubber dampner

Have you reset the ecu?

Just a thought, could't harm anything if it is a fault in the programming or something

Yeah mate tried that and ran diagnostics no faults came up but i still got the same problem. i charge my car up drive it hicas light comes and steering wheel tugs when i turn, leave it over night battery dies again when i go to start it in the morning and this batterys brand new, its freking me out

You can try checking that your altenator is charging the battery properly and if it is, then you've got a draw. Meaning despite the car being off there's still power going to something and causing a drained battery come morning. Worth a check anyway.

As for the HICAS prob, maybe be a sensor problem that only acts up periodically and was fine when tested it, most likely (knowing your luck) it worked fine then and then crapped out later on you. These things are hard to trouble shoot so the next time the light comes on, do the test then. Hopefully you'll get an answer.

Good luck.

Cheers B)

    • The boy crashed his Patrol a while ago, so he is now driving his mum's ASX and she is driving my Honda I initially said he could have the Honda to drive around (he's a good kid currently training at the police academy), but, his mum was quick in saying that he "will" take the ASX and she will take the Honda, he was a bit upset with that, he rates the manual Honda more than the automatic ASX (mums taxi), and I'm getting the feeling she enjoys thrashing the manual Honda around In other news, I'm looking at a MX5 NB series 2 on Saturday  I always loved my NB series 1, but after stripping it down because I'm a idiot it wasn't fun cruising or driving around daily, and Jackie refused to drive it, which was an issue if we went out, because her refusing to drive it meant I lost my designated driver if we went to a party, or dinner, or...... basically anywhere where I could get a glow on Yes yes, I may need a new job if I decide to buy https://www.seek.com.au/apprentice-hairdresser-jobs/in-All-Sydney-NSW Plus giving the Honda to the boy, which is my cunning plan, will give me enough wifey type credits to turn up in another car Meh
    • Yeah I've just been checking it out on GTR registry and its the emerald green pearl (DS0) and only 610 made for S1 RS-Four V (if i'm understanding correctly) so I feel obliged to restore the paint to as close to original as possible!
    • Thankyou, sir! Yeah I'm having a lot of fun rewiring bits of the car. I used to dislike wiring a lot before, I dont like it any more but it is getting easier
