Power Steering Light On 2010 Nissan Altima Hybrid

Nissan Altima

Ive change my power steering rack on my car and now on my dash it has the power steering light on and the wheel is stiff how do I reset it?


Generally the need to bleed the hydraulic system is needed once it has been opened. Top off reservoir and turn wheel all the way one way and then back to the other. Let system rest for 5 minutes, top off fluid level and repeat as needed. Supporting the front end allowing the wheel to turn freely will speed up the process.

STEERING GEAR, REPLACE

  1. Raise and support front of vehicle, then remove wheels.
  2. Position a suitable drain pan below steering gear steering fluid hose connections.
  3. Disconnect power steering hose clamp, then the hose at steering gear. Allow fluid to drain.
  4. Disconnect tie rod studs from steering knuckles.
  5. Remove bolt securing lower joint to steering gear pinion.
  6. Remove lower joint from pinion. Refer to Fig. 1 when replacing power steering gear.
  7. Remove steering gear retaining bolts.
  8. Remove steering gear and linkage assembly from vehicle.
  9. Reverse procedure to install, noting the following:
    a. Torque wheel lug nuts to 80 ft. lbs.
    b. Torque steering gear mounting bolts and nuts to 114 ft. lbs.
    c. Torque tie rod end nuts to 25 ft. lbs.

STEERING ANGLE SENSOR ZERO POINT ADJUSTMENT

If brake ECU or steering angle sensor has been replaced or the battery has been disconnected, the steering angle sensor zero point adjustment procedure must be performed.

  1. After completing replacement procedure or reconnecting battery reconnected, drive vehicle straight ahead for 5 seconds at a speed of 22 MPH or more.
  2. After driving vehicle straight ahead, ensure that VDC indicator lamp Off.
  3. If VDC warning lamp is illuminated, the VDC system must be diagnosed using a suitably programmed scan tool and repaired.

YAW RATE/SIDE/DECEL G SENSOR ZERO POINT ADJUSTMENT

Perform yaw rate/side/decel G sensor zero point adjustment after replacing brake ECU or yaw rate/side/decel G sensor or performing front wheel alignment adjustment.
While obtaining zero point, vehicle must be kept stationary.
The procedure must be performed on a level surface with an incline of less than 1 degree.

  1. Clear yaw rate/side/decel G sensor zero point setting calibration data as follows:
    a. Place ignition switch in Off position.
    b. Connect a suitably programmed scan tool to DLC located under lefthand side of instrument panel.
    c. Center steering wheel and place transmission shift lever in Park position.
    d. With brake pedal released, place ignition switch in On position.
    e. Following instruction on scan tool display, erase DTCs.
    f. Place ignition switch in Off position.
  2. Perform zero point calibration setting of the yaw rate/side/decel G sensor as follows:
    a. Place ignition switch in Off position.
    b. Connect a suitably programmed scan tool to DLC (Data Link Connector) located under lefthand side of instrument panel.
    c. Inspect that steering wheel is centered and transmission shift lever is in Park position. DTCs C1210 and C1336 will be recorded if shift lever is not in Park position.
    d. Connect a suitably programmed scan tool to DLC located under lefthand side of instrument panel.
    e. Place ignition switch in On position with brake pedal depressed.
    f. From scan tool display, select Test Mode in Work Support to start Test Mode.
    g. Leave vehicle stationary without depressing brake pedal for 1 or 2 minutes.
    h. Inspect that interval between blinks of Electronically Controlled Brake warning lamp changes from 1 second to 0.5 second. Zero point calibration is performed only once after system enters the Test Mode. Calibration cannot be performed again until stored data is cleared.
    i. From scan tool menu select Test Mode End.
    j. Turn ignition switch Off, then disconnect scan tool.
  3. Perform steering angle sensor zero point adjustment as outlined in “Steering Angle Sensor Zero Point Adjustment.”
