Hello, I'm a new member from Germany. After several STS, I bought a 2005 XLR and I enjoy it very much. But some months ago the message"service steering lock" appears sometimes and after about 2 months the XLR didn't run anymore and had to be towed to the dealer. After 4 weeks
they got a new steering lock and it runs again. But after 2 weeks the message appeared again several times and I'm waiting that my XLR stopps again. My dealer and GM Germany don't have any idear. Does anybody know how to solve the problem? Thank you very much. Reiner
It might be a similar system to Corvette, but as Cliff said we don't use that feature in the US market on the XLR.
A few years ago GM deleted them on Automatic transmission cars when we had issues with them on the Corvettes.
Only the manual transmission cars have them now.
We had issues with the BCM and some sticky relays, also the ECL assembly does fail. The micro-switch would not report the correct status to the BCM and it would lock it out.
There should be a code to go by.
