RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

My research into the death wobble issue started when I experienced it with my Equinox. What I found was many thing 'can contribute' to a DW but the MOST OFTEN culprit was the power steering in the vehicles. In the Equinox case, it only occurred in the 4 cyl models. This was because it came with electric steering assist instead of hydraulic like the 6 cyl models. After my complaint to NHTSA, GM offered a solution. Instead of pulling the interior fuse, they switched it to the one under the hood. This allowed the power steering module to remain energized and functional while towing. Unfortunately, it also leaves all the other electrical items functional also. This means you should install a battery maintainer in your vehicle while towing to keep the battery charged. IMO, a minor inconvenience. While waiting for GM's 'fix' I installed an eye bolt through the floorboard just in front of the driver's seat. A bungee hooked to the eye bolt to the bottom of the steering wheel worked perfectly. However, GM's fix has cured the DW and I've had zero problems since using their new directions. As I understand it, Jeep has a similar power steering setup and the recall fix was simply a bypass cable for the steering module...hope this helps...Dennis Dennis, I've got a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette zi bought new 4 years ago. Corvettes have the electric power steering as well. No problems even reported on Corvette Forum.
