Steering Rack Replacements

Steering assistance module programming

With many vehicles integrating their power steering modules as part of the steering rack assembly, replacing a steering rack can now involve much more than adjusting wheel alignment! When a new power steering rack is fitted the electronic steering assistance modules will require programming and configuring to the vehicle. Please note that some manufaturers require the QR code or barcode information from the steering rack itself, we always advise to take a photo of these labels prior to fitting the replacement part.

Using the Complete Diagnostics remote coding tool, we can programme replacement steering assistance modules/electronic power steering racks to the vehicle without needing to visit the main dealers with the car/van. The very latest DoIP vehicles are also covered by our services ensuring Jaguar Land Rover vehicles and many other brands can still be completed. Any of the required steering angle resets can also be performed if for example you have not needed to replace the entire steering rack assembly.

We offer remote programming for replacement headlight assemblies on over 130 different vehicles including – Volvo, Ford, BMW, Volkswagen Audi Group and Mercedes Benz. Often to be able to programme these parts requires a visit to the dealers – we can complete these remotely with our remote coding tool, greatly improving the efficiency of the repair process. Many manufacturers now place a QR code on the label of the headlight or a ‘code’ that is required to be input to start the coding process, simply send this to us when requested during the connection via our web portal and we will do the rest.

Complete Diagnostics FD tool update

August 2022

We will perform an OTA (“Over The Air”) update on all Complete Diagnostics FD remotes. During this update, new functionality will be added regarding the front LEDs of the Complete Diagnostics FD remotes and the update process.
It often happens that when a remote is updating, there has been no clear indication that the remote is performing an update. To solve this problem we introduce the beeper and the blue front LEDs.
A blue front LED and a short beep indicate that the remote is performing an update. It is then important not to disconnect the remote from the car or the internet to prevent the remote from getting stuck in an update.
The update process takes an average of 1-2 minutes (depending on the speed of your internet connection). The length of the update process depends on how regularly you use the remote. It can happen that a remote is updating for a longer period of time because the remote has not been used for a long time. If the update is done correctly, the blue LEDs will return to their original green color.
So if you encounter the blue LEDs and the beeper while using the Complete Diagnostics FD remote, it is important to patiently wait for the update to complete.
