Customer Question

I have a 2000 A6 Quattro. When turning left or right, the inside rear tire skids and the entire front end binds creating a large amount of tension in the drive train. I replaced both CV/axles to no avail. Is there any reason the steering sensor may be the culprit? Any thoughts?

I am still in need of an answer. I am also getting a 01426 code (E221) Control in Steering Wheel no signal/communication. Is the Quattro braking system related in any way to the steering position sensor?
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 11 months ago.

Your driveline is binding up because it is driving like it is locked into 4wd. The same amount of power is being sent to the front and rear axles. When turning all 4 tires go different speeds and you have at least 2 tires wanting to go the same speed, resulting in the driveline binding. I do not see your code is related to this concern. Are all 4 tires the same brand, size, age, read depth, and air pressure?

All tires were purchased at the same time. All pressures are good and equal. Yes, it appears the*****is engaged and not allowing for the difference in rotation when turning. What would be the cause?
