Default Rear steering broken

Damn!

I finally got one I can't figure out. My rear steering stopped working yesterday, and I'm getting a warning light for it now. Anyone know how to pull codes from this?

omg will. you are one lucky dog. GM did that to a few cars in 93 as a sort of working model for the new chev trucks. ussually it is a torque thrust steer operation. when it has lateral G forces, it moves the rear wheels oposite to the turning of the front wheels. you might have a lateral G force sensor bad.i have only ever heard of 2 other bonnevilles that had that system. very very rare. god you got a keeper there. a working prototype of the rear steer that is on the chev trucks today

well guys, bad news here. when Gm installed this on a few selected cars. they have no diag. you just got parts and tested them with known good ones. and trust me on this , if you can find them, break out the gold card
you can disable it if you want. but you better make sure your rear wheels are straight. if not , you need to replace the rear tie rod assembly with a non rear steer one. still salty
good luck

you only need the rear tie rod assembly to make it non rear steer. a bone yard maybe for about 200 bux.
also some had an option with the struts too. at higher speeds, the car lowered it self to get close to the road to prevent air from going under the car. i have seen this once.

Will hang on for one minute before you go out and spend big $$ i have 3 cars ( bonnie`* ) with this rare option in our salvage yard and since we really haven`t moved these items......i can swing you a deal lets say $1k delivered to your door ...including all taxes and freight ...anything i can do to get you back on the road this also includes the lateral G sensor and the pump..with all the hardware you need...these units have been tested and are working good ..one car has only 55.000 miles on it .so we`ll take it from that one

Might be easier than you think. If the fluid level gets low on one side it will start to compress air instead of move fluid. If one wheel moves and the other doesn't it will shut down the system to avoid ripping the wheel off at high speeds (since one wheel is straight and the other isn't). The electric pump should be on the passenger side along with the resvoir. They are mounted underneth the trunk, next to where the spare tire sits. My guess is it is either low fluid or a bad postition sensor on one of the wheels.
