You're sure it's not just the power steering kicking in since there's a large amount of play in the wheel when you're stopped that's essentially a deadzone? Just a thought.

fyi our cars don't have power steering. we use an electric steering system. and the clicking is most likely your intermediate shaft

Yeah, apparently the intermediate steering shaft on these cars is a ******* terrible design.

It's probably moderately high on the priority list (correct me if i'm wrong)

I've had mine replaced two times in a year. And I swear it started doing it about an hour after it was replaced the second time. *This was like 6 months ago*

So i've just said **** it for now and i'll bring it back in when I have to for something else.

no some people say its ok but those electrical systems are meant for whats on them and really not much more so i don't like doing that, rather i would go and get a mini make-a-fuse and use that to tap into a fuse slot that isn't in use. and use that to run your power wire. also since the interceptor comes with the jumper installed and is not needed for proper operation with the cobalts remove the jumper on the back of the gauge and thats really it. everything else is pretty straight forward.

But im not using my boost gauge anymore so would that matter? Wouldn't the power cable for that be sufficient?
