After my friend helped me install my alarm system, my automatic steering wheel tilt no longer works when I insert and remove the key like it used to. I can still move it around using the buttons...and when I use the memory settings...it moves...but not automatically when I insert/remove the key...

Could this be a blown fuse by chance? If so...has anyone come across this before and know where the fuse is?

Thanks,

Wow, I'm glad I'm not the only one that had that problem! I just got my Compustar installed by a friend of mine that works at a car audio shop and the same thing happend. He thought it might be a pinched wire, but I will try disconnecting the battery...hopefully that works.

Have them recheck the wiring. I've heard that problems can arise with the steering column if the autostart isn't hooked up correctly.

The thing is...my friend installed the alarm...and he is across the country right now...so I hope the relay thing works and it's easy enough that I can do myself.

Thanks for the info.

92 Sedan POS....
That would be great if you could post the directions for that relay! I would like to get my automatic steering wheel working again. Any info you can provide would be of great help.

Thanx

Take your time 92 Legend POS....I have gone this long without it...I think I can wait a little longer :)

Just one of those things that isn't a necessity, but it cool to have because its a plush feature of our beautiful cars....

No tilt, EVER...

Am I right in finding that my 93 Sedan L does NOT HAVE TILT? It has telescope, but I cannot find a way to tilt the **** wheel...! This car has every option except heated seats available, but I cannot find a way to tilt my wheel! Telescope works...

I am also still waiting for "92 sedan POS" to post the directions for the relay he said would fix the alarm/tilt problem! I messaged him about a month ago and haven't heard anything. If anyone hears from him let him know to post those directions if he could.

sorry guys for waiting so long
heres a way to bypass the automatic tilt/telescope steering wheel for remote start.....you will need some wires and a SPST (single throw single pole) relay...u can probably find it at any automotive shop....well i drawn a lil diagram of what u have to do hopefully u can understand it....the blue/white wire is pair with a black wire right under your ignition key hole.....there are several pair of wires down there.....but i think only one is blue/white ....i used one of the wire from my alarm system for the positive source....
hopefully this will help.......if u have any question....just post here and ill try to answer the best i can

in case the picture doesnt show up....heres the direction.....take a wire and connect it to the blue/white wire...on the other end of the wire connect it to 87 on the relay......86 goes to a positive source.....30 goes to ground....and connect 85 to 30

Thanks alot '92 Sedan POS'!! I really appreciate it. I am going to give those directions to my friend that put in my Compustar and see if I can't get that auto tilt to work again. I will let you know how it goes when I get it done.
Again....thank you!
