SSU 523824.03 – B138 Steering Wheel Position Sensor, Supply Voltage in Channel 2 Too High

SSU 523824.03 (SSU )

Code: 523824.03



This diagnostic trouble code (DTC), SSU 523824.03, is triggered when the power supply for the steering input device SID 2 exceeds 5.25 volts for longer than 320 milliseconds. This indicates an overvoltage condition in channel 2 of the steering wheel position sensor.


When this error is detected, the steering system may not function correctly, potentially leading to inaccurate steering inputs and compromised vehicle control.


Inspect Power Supply:

  • Check the power supply to the steering input device SID 2 for proper voltage regulation.
  • Ensure that the voltage does not exceed 5.25 volts.

Verify Sensor Connections:

  • Inspect the wiring and connectors related to channel 2 of the steering input device for signs of damage, loose connections, or corrosion.
  • 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 compatibility.

Replace Faulty Components:

  • If the steering input device SID 2 or related components 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 steering system components can help prevent overvoltage conditions.
  • Ensuring the electrical system is properly regulated can avoid damage to sensitive components.
