  • Ensure all connections are secure and free from contaminants.

Update Software:

  • Ensure that the SSU software is up-to-date. Apply any available firmware updates to improve system performance and prevent overcurrent issues.

Replace Faulty Components:

  • If any wiring, connectors, or the steering valve Y49 itself are found to be defective, replace them with new, genuine parts.

Consult Technical Support:

  • If the error persists after performing the above steps, consult technical support or the manufacturer for further assistance.


  • Regular maintenance and inspection of the electrical system can help prevent short circuits.
