Hello All,

I own a Chevy Beat Clocked 50K Recently, I love her a lot and till now never made me sad. But recently i had some major issues with my Chevy.
Model- Diesel-2012 September Model-BEAT LS

Steering was getting stuck while in stop position when I used to take a complete Turn.I had to push harder to make it release and same will happen during the complete turn as it was getting locked and unlocked while turning.

I checked my suspension and bearings and found all are perfect and diagnosed as a Steering Column issue as inside the steering column there is a sensor (STEERING TORQUE SENSOR), as Chevy has EPS (Electronic Power Steering). It is malfunctioning and giving uneven Volts to the motor.

But real headache is that Sensor is not available in Service Center of GM. Can any throw some lights on this..??

Please try chevy dealers at Trichur and mangalore as they stock more parts as local workshops at calicut usually procure the chevy parts from there.

It is a part inside the Steering Column. Chevy dealers only sell as this as an entire set , ie the steering column full set. It cost 30K. I only need a sensor inside the steering Column

Try Boodmo.com they seem to deal with most spares.

You need to mention the part No.

I've sent them a query for a clip, still waiting response.

All the best.
