Still getting dsc code 1937. Steering wheel angle offset sensor failure...
I've replaced this with an item I bought on ebay and considering its on the CAN system the serial numbers don't match up? Causing the fault? Just a thought

Think I've figured it... When I put the deep dish steering wheel on (when it had the mx5 engine and no dsc) I put it on upside down... Bloody idiot.
The slot for the cables should be at the bottom not the top. Would explain why the indicators don't cancel as they should and the dsc keeps playing up. Doesn't help I rounded a screw off and snapped the Allen head in the other

Dsc ring was 180' out. Dsc is quite sensitive, might need to change tyres and get tracking done properly

Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.

Still getting p0032. I've checked all wire connections and I'm getting a 0.32 ohm resistance reading on what should be the sensor earth back to the ecu... Something not right there. I'll just zero out the dtc I think.
550 miles in now :)

Back from Italy... Holiday from hell with a 2 year old.
Went to WIM earlier to get the tracking done.
Rear left was out a fair whack annoyingly. I did hit a kerb earlier on in the year but instead of the wheel gaining more positive camber its got negative and the camber bolts are fully adjusted so it won't straighten out fully...
720 miles in now. Going to try and get it up to 1000 in the next couple of days and then take the 4k limiter off.

Don't know what I did on IDS but it magically started working after a lot of buggering about.

Interesting...
I'm getting a weird sensation when I back off accelator or apply softly when moving... Its like a fluttering sound. Almost like a actuator flittering on and off rapidly.
Don't know of its related or rx8's "just do that"
