    Firm ride seams to work just fine. Engages in auto mode under hard acceleration, steering and braking and works fine when forced in FIRM. Its just for some reason the EVO orifice isnt controlling tighter steering. The manual refers to some Star??? tester. Dont know what that is? Would I need it to do the OHM tests

    The original STAR testers were just code readers AFAIK. You can buy a modern one for your car for less than $50 these days. Great tool for any SC owner and not that difficult to use.

    Code: 52 O,R Power Steering Pressure Switch circuit open

    See this page for a full list of codes and details on which are SC-specific [ http://www.njtacc.com/tech/eec_codes.html ]

    Thread update... for anyone who cares I finally go the speed sensitive steering back working... It is so awesome to drive her now at highway speed... I am so happy. It turns out when I was changing my fan the other day and searching the fuse box for power my buddy pointed out a female plug unplugged. I thought that was odd and he searched around for a few minutes and found the male end jammed under the battery. Looks like my mechanic never plugged it back in many months ago when I did the timing cover gasket... It only cost me hours of trouble shooting, the cost of a replacement ride control module, replacement of EVO valve and lots of frustration... Wait until I give him an earful...

    At least that code 52 was reliable

    Lesson learned... test the voltages first and make sure you have power to the components...

    Your mechanic, no matter how good, does not like working on these cars and probably does not know as much about them as he thinks either!!

    You need a new mechanic. The kind of quality of repair with leaving things unplugged and stuffed under the batt show chevy quality work. I say leave him to it, some people will just never learn. Find a Ford guy and you'll b happier
