U0212 - Steering Column Control Module: No Communication

Possible Symptoms

  • Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) ON
  • Cruise control system (CCS) warning light ON

Possible Causes

Possible Solutions

Special Notes

  • In some cases this DTC may be the end result of retrofitting CCS -or- an actual communication issue with the Steering Wheel Control Module. If in doubt, run a complete Auto-Scan to see which control modules are installed and communicating.
  • In other cases this DTC may be resolved by deactivating and reactivating CCS.
  • When found in a MLB based chassis vehicle even though Address 16 is communicating directly make sure ALL fused powers to J527 are OK. The example here may be helpful: https://forums.ross-tech.com/showthread.php?22543-Audi-A4-B8-Steering-Angle-sensor-no-signal-(G85)
