Hi all, my uncle bought a second hand Toyota axio last year. Now the steering wheel will jam from time to time. Have to restart the car to get back the steering. May I know what workshop can help??? Coz they went to a few workshop and they say PI car they can't do.

That's surprising. Axio is a b&b car; any workshop should be able to handle it. Why don't you call a few workshops to check?

Not sure. he said that while driving, the steering wheel will just like jam and cannot move at all suddenly.. everytime the full lock or do like reverse turning, it will also jam. they went a few workshop and they say its a PI car, they dunno how to do.. so asking here see which ws can do..

 

maybe its those ECU problem or like program prob... not too sure..

Try Horizon Auto at Tai Seng. A number of Axio SG members go there for servicing.

Whatever it is he shouldn't be driving around with that car until it's fixed, really too dangerous.

My wife had a PI toyota passo with steering problems too, and it cost $1.2k to had it fixed.

I think what he meant is loss of power steering, the steering will turn very heavy. Did the electric power steering light light-up? Better rectify the problem as quick as possible.

Next time it happen ask him look outside. Is there a UFO flying above him? Hahaha.

 

I suspect its an electrical fault like loose connection n when electricity cut out e electric powersteering fail.

 

Is it only radio go on n off or all other electricals? Maybe just some loose fuse or electrical connection.
