Problems after MDPS coupling replaced.
« June 08, 2019, 07:42:41 »
Auto electrician took 11/2 days to replace MDPS coupling on my 2011 Hyundai  cw wagon. Said the computer wouldn't recognize the new part. Picked up car yesterday. Now the Malfunction Indicator lamp is on all the time and air con is not working and heater won't turn off either when switched over. Don't know what's happening .

Welcome.

Scary stuff! I feel your pain. Hopefully we can offer some helpful suggestions.

I personally don't know where to start! I'll have to have a good think about it.  :undecided:

Sounds like his problem to fix, but then maybe best he does not. Was the cost reduced due to his inability to do the job?
Do you know what parts of the car were dismantled? Standard A/C or Climate control/

Computer won't recognise what? The plastic coupler?

What light is lit exactly in the Cluster?

Sometimes the steering Angle sensor needs to be calibrated . Sounds like he does not have the diagnostic tool to do this.

sounds like something may have been disturbed for the A/C controls. The blend doors are operated by stepper motors, so seems to me likely a controls issue whether a harness has been disturbed, bad fuse maybe. assuming this all coincided upon completion of this work.

What part of QLD are you located?

Changing the coupling is a 2.5 HOUR job. Cost around $220 total.

As tw said, its just a bit of plastic, nothing  for ECU to recognise.

How did he attack the job? Does it look like he removed the dash?  Sounds like an idiot, that may explain the other malfunctions.

You need to get a refund and find a good mechanic.
