Sorry to hear this. But you are quick
No, I haven't installed mine. Just moved into a new house, spending every second doing remodeling. I find this is a great way to stop me from spending more money on the treg, lol.
I bought the H clock spring too, it's hiding in one of the moving boxes...
With that being said, I think I know the solution to this. You will need to run external power to the heater pins on the back of the clock spring. Hardwire to fuse #11. Without power going to the heater pins, it will just draw power from the wrong place. I did some continuity tests on the leads and turns out the heater pins on the back and the front of the clock spring are not directly connected. They are controlled by IC boards. This explains the blown fuse on other modules, and proves that I can't simply put a SPST switch on the dashboard as I won't be able to control the heater that way.
Not sure if I explained myself clearly. Simply put, connect the 2 pins on the back of the clock spring. Positive to fuse 11, negative to chassis.
I will post some pics to better explain myself, you might also need to buy some connector for a "factory "look.
Btw, did you need to re-calibrate you steering angle sensor for the new clock spring?
Did you end up getting this installed, and all worked as you had hoped? Connecting those connectors to fuse 11, and ground? I've gotten my steering wheel, and I'm just looking for a clock spring now. Any idea if this is the only part number that will work 4H0953568H?
I found one with this part number: 4H0953568M, but it might be too new.
Lastly, where is everyone finding these clocksprings at? I can't seem to find much in the way of used, and they're quite expensive new.
Thanks for the help!
