While driving on a straight road, the vehicle pulls or drifts to the right or the left.
New tools were developed to help you diagnose and correct a pulling and/or steering wheel off-center issue. There is a diagnosis worksheet included to
take on your test-drive and record your findings. These values are used to build the 15-digit DTC (diagnostic trouble code) that is required for your
warranty claim. The last step in each repair procedure helps you create the correct code.
In the rare case that you have to repair a vehicle that pulls and has the steering wheel off-center, use REPAIR PROCEDURE B to file your warranty
For more information, refer to Training Module SSC 44 - Steering Drift or Pull Interactive Service Bulletin.
Several conditions can cause the vehicle to pull or drift:
Off-center steering wheel (no pulling or drifting, but a client may believe this is the case)
Diagnose the problem using the special tools and the worksheet that guides you to one of four repair procedures.
Centering Tape (enough
to diagnose 240 vehicles):
