This will fix my cruise control and brake light problem?
And, what is the scan tool being referred to in the pdf document? Do you have a suggested or recommended model of tool?
I read the report you linked to more closely last night and it doesn't address my problem. The report describes how the power steering must be reprogrammed to deal with steering wheel centering issues (return to center or centered wheel). I don't have either of those problems. The problem I have is that the power steering quits from time to time. That is a very different problem.
But, the problem I see now is the same as the problem that prompted the replacement of the unit in the first place (at the urging of the dealership). Initially, the power steering would quit for very brief periods of time. It increased until the point that it never worked. Now, with the new unit, power steering works most of the time. Occasionally, it will quit for a fraction of a second. That is what I am trying to fix, not centering the steering wheel. It centers fine now.
