fanatec Forza Wheel Locked to the left

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Mike Monahan, Nov 29, 2016.

  1. Hey all,

    The Forza locked up last night during pre-race for Brasil. I was headed into T1 and heard something then the wheel died and I went off. I tried to reset the wheel and it wouldn't self-calibrate like when you turn it on. It sounds different when it's spinning right & left, but now it always locks up spun all the way left. I tried a new Firmware Flash, reloaded the driver, tried to reset PC Mode, and even Windows doesn't see it in order to try anything there!? Did this wheel just dump on me? Is there a way to ask Fanatec? What is their support email?

    This is what it does now exactly!


    Anyone else have this issue?

    Bummed, Mike

  2. Fanatec Support response to this issue FYI.They offered no remedy. Not very good sales & customer retention training at Fanatec I guess.

    Hi Mike,
    thank you for your inquiry,
    Unfortunately your wheel shows a defective auto centering sensor,this issue is non-repairable,I am sorry to not having better news for you

    Best regards / Freundliche Grüße
