No, it doesn't return. Doesn't really bother me though. Haven't tried it yet but maybe a switch to turn it on and off? I only have one good arm so I like to have control of a car. lol

Fang16 I have no idea of weight. I can say it's not much at all. My guess would be 5-10 lbs. I'm not concerned with weight at my age.Don't even have a bathroom scale. lol

johnsongrass1 This would be something I've considered adapting my my race car. Do you know how much it weighs?

Fang16 No. The only sound I hear, if the car is not running, is a click about 10 seconds after I turn the key on. The car is way to loud to hear anything when it's running. lol I have turned the wheel with the car not running and heard nothing.

S10xGN Just out of curiosity, can you hear it when it's working?

Fang16 Completed the EPS install on my straight axle 41 Willys. It's a pure pleasure to drive now, especially in slow tight turns. It is a great help to a handicapped person. Handles great on the roads and at the track. Used one out of a 2008 Nissan Versa. Having a brother that is a gunsmith with lathes and milling machines was a big help.

Worked on an Isuzu once, wires changed colors at ever connection throughout the car. Was a real joy to find a short/open in it.
Buddy at salvage yard called today. He got a 2008 versa in so I went and got the whole steering column. Included is a pic of what I was asking about. Notice how the wire colors change from one side of the connector to the other. Don't know why Japanese do this but I've seen it a lot over the years.

waid302 See the picture of my Versa ECU. The Orange wire is the Ignition On +12V. You will need the little small wire harness that goes from the ECU to the Torque Sensor.

2007-2009 Nissan Versa wiring

Using the 2007-2009 Nissan Versa EPS but didn't get any wiring or connectors with it (ebay). I have your 2008 Nissan Versa wiring jpg but not sure which pins are the correct ones for the torque sensor wires on the the EPS module pins. The torque sensor has wires (red, yellow, black and white) but they terminated at the column mount.I have included a pic of my EPS module if you'd be so nice as to head me in the right direction.
Also, the motor wires were connected to the left most pins and I'm not sure if this correct.
Been trying to find a 07-09 versa in local salvage yard to get connectors and wiring from but no luck yet. Not really sure what size the pins in module are either. I think .061/1.2mm?
Thanks for all your help.
Steve
