This cutting up the harness and buying a adapter persuade my and Dai to find out what the fix is.

If you remove the fuse box next to the battery put the car in accessory then pull the steering lock fuse.

Then just put everything back where it goes and that's it

The car starts and shuts off just like normal but of course you lose the lock.

That fuse is only for the lock I wouldn't post it if I didn't try it on Dai's car first.

You would like that as a safeguard the car wouldn't start with that fuse blown... interesting find and definitely good to know!

If you look at page 26 of the PCS section of the service manual you'll see the schematic of the IPDM E/R (module next to the battery). It is indeed a 10A fuse location #48. This feeds the steering lock relay which feeds the steering lock unit. Give me a few minutes, I'll get a screen shot and upload it for you guys.


Great find!

I will definitely take half the credit(as I pat myself on the back)and the other half to my buddy Daisuke149

As this gets confirmed by you guys be sure to start throwing out major REP'S mine and Dai way.

Thank you (as I take a bow)

Just b/c the steering lock relay + Throttle Control motor relay get there power from the same wire has nothing to do with it NOT receiving power while S/L relay fuse is removed that circuit is undisturbed.

Excellent work guys. I had thought about pulling the fuse if mine ever went to try and get it going. Great to know this solves the steering lock dilemma
