Nearly 2 years ago i parked my car at night with the steering on full lock, returned to the car and had the dreaded Red Steering Lock Fault, was lucky as the car started ok, got home and re-set the ELV counter with Tool32, but ever since then i was still getting the occasional yellow steering lock fault show up, even though i was very careful to park with the steering always in the straight position, so i guess the damage was already done.
2 weeks ago i bought a ELV bypass and its been fine ever since, very simple to fit.
Remove trim from under the steering wheel
Press start button without touching the brake pedal
Steering lock is now released, pull the electrical connector from ELV
Remove fob(steering lock remains in unlocked mode)
Connect ELV bypass
Re-set ELV counter with Tool32 and clear error codes
You are now good to go....
