I took the steering sensor apart, the brushes for the sweeper arms are all worn off. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. Soon after, the steering wheel went out of control. This includes an episode of the vehicle's engine cutting off without warning during a turn on a busy street resulting in immediate loss of power steering and brakes, nearly resulting in a head-on collision. The dealer was not contacted.
The transmission would not be placed in neutral nor could the parking brake be disengaged so the vehicle could be pushed out of the way of traffic. There were three acceleration events with the driver's right foot off the gas pedal. A change in steering behavior or steering wheel angle is possible. I got mine also on ebay. Getting the bolt out was pretty easy once I had the steering wheel at top dead center then turned to 11 0'clock.
First occurred a year ago; went away, returned last month. Words can not describe the level of professionalism from Bryce. Ran into multiple issues: -Couldn't get the lower steering column separated from the upper. The vehicle was deemed a total loss by the insurer, geico and was removed from service. You will feel 5 or 6 tubing runs clipped to the inside of the wheel well.
Their overall verdict is that if more than one vehicles exhibit the issue, then it is normal, and there is nothing they can do. There were cars heading towards me but the initial distance was quite comfortable and safe. This vehicle is dangerous and should be taken off of the market. The failure occurred without warning. Consequence: In this situation the front passenger air bags will not deploy even if a sufficiently severe accident would occur and occupant protection provided by the system would not be possible.

I didn't even have to take it apart or remove it at all. Clearly this is manufacture defect. X3 entire left side damaged, called 911, car towed. At the same time, steering was more difficult than normal.
I will report the problem to the appropriate governmental agencies. The car would not restart and had tow to the dealer. The dealer performed a four wheel alignment and released the vehicle to me. While driving various speeds, the steering became difficult to maneuver without warning. In spite of that, we advised the dealership that we would bring the vehicle to them for evaluation on Monday, Nov 21. Put your hand all the way in, put your hand straight up and press out toward the outside of the vehicle. According to the shop foreman, a driving test was conducted and reported that the vehicle drove straight and released the vehicle to me.
When doing so, you'll need to go through and clear any fault codes in the system first or the encoding won't work. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where they were unable to diagnose the failure. Upper Description: Steering angle sensor Quantity Required: 1 Model: X5 4.

Perhaps it just needs a little encouragement from whatever allows you to give it a little tap? Grateful that I'm alive and have a chance to file this complaint so this incident has a chance to be noticed or be further investigated. To my mind if a part fault or failure occurs, that is a safety issue, a recall issue, not a warranty issue and the carmaker should fix and report it. It sort of snaps into place, but it doesn't feel super secure.
I assume they will be. It's such an obvious safety issue that people might lose lifes on it. Ended up having to bump into the curb and stop the vehicle.
