Customer Question
Hi I'm ***** *****...

Hi I'm ***** *****. I have a 2003 silverado 1500hd with quadrasteer.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Recently I have been having issues with the quadrasteer. Once in a while I will have and issue when I am turning left the service 4 wheel steer light comes on and the rear wheel will lock out. I turn the vehicle off and back in and it resets and is fine until the next random time it happens. But the bigger issue is when I am driving (most noticeable at highway speeds) I can push the accelerator and you can feel the rear end move to the left just a bit. When you let off the gas it goes back. I had a friend in the vehicle and confirmed that when I pushed the gas the back tire actually most just a bit.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

Have you had a chance to scan to to see which codes are stored?

Does the rear turn on light, moderate, or hard acceleration?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The shop I took it to did scan it for codes. I don't recall exactly which codes came up. I can work on getting those when the shop opens today.As for the wheels turning on acceleration, if the wheels are watched closely they seem to turn a few degrees no matter how slight or aggressive the accretion is.

Thanks, ***** ***** know those codes when you can.
