    error code c1301???

    Anyone know what this one means. Seems to run fine, but I don't want to break something by ignoring it.

    Thanks, Rich

    I had that happen as well!! The EPS also started flashing, probably because I hit a tree with my right front tire. Turned it off then back on, still flashing code 1301, didn't seem to be bothering it to bad, so kept on going. Then all of a sudden went off and power steering came back!!! Ran her pretty rough for about 50 more miles and ran great!!!

    C-1301

    Yeah, I had that...twice. Turned of the key and reset it...the power steering begain working again each time. Got under the hood and unplugged and replugged some connecters. Have not had it happen again.

    However, at speed thru the boulders it seems as though the power steering occasionally shuts off for a second or two...hard to tell. I've installed a bigger steering wheel much closer to me (a-la nascar).

    I went over a dirkbike jump on Saturday and came down pretty hard nose first, imediately lost power steering and code C1301 was flashing. Turned it off, back on, worked fine for a couple minutes then lost power steering again and codes were flashing. Should I just unplug everything and plug it back in? Does unplugging the ECU clear the codes? Doesn't look like anything is bent or broken at all.

    haven't had to do it but i have heard something about loosening the four mounting bolts for the steering unit and it allows something that is out of alignment to return to the proper place. and re-tighten

    It happened to me the second day I rode my Wildcat X, two days ago.

    The first time I was climbing a steep trail when I hit hard with both wheels a large rock -couldn't see much with the medium-size windshield filthy from dust. As I reached the end of the climb I noticed the steering had become very hard. Lack of experience made me think it was caused by engaging the 4-wheel-drive plus Low gear prior to the climb. But after going back to 2-wheel-drive and High gear I could see power-steering was obviously not working. Then I noticed the "C1301" code on the screen and got worried. Not knowing what to do, I turned off the engine, waited 30 seconds and started it again. The error code was gone and the power steering was working again. At that point I was unable to relate hitting the rock and the error code, and still though it had been caused by 4-weel-drive plus Low gear combo, or something else I had done wrong -I had parked on a steep area because other drivers were having trouble with the climb and I had to push HARD the gear lever to get the Wildcat in gear from "Park".

    The second time it happened there was no mistake, it happened right after I hit another rock I failed to see. Again, I stopped the engine, restarted it, and voila! After that I drove fairly fast on very rough terrain and all was fine, but I did not go through anything as hard as what had provoked the error code previously.

    My concern is if I broke something related to power-steering after hitting them rocks. Or loosing power-steering after hitting a big rock at high speed is normal/acceptable? I had hit a rock under similar conditions earlier on -that mid-size windshield has me almost blind when it comes to reading difficult terrain- and that first time nothing happened, thus I think I may have misadjusted something due to my not-very-precise piloting.

    Soon I'll be heading for the first maintenance service and would like to know what the mechanic should be looking for or fixing, so advice is greatly welcome.

    The Park feature on the Wildcat is not suited for mountain country. It can be very difficult to get out of Park on a steep slope, and you risk damaging the gear shift cable if you try to force it out of Park. You might want to add an accessory parking brake to your vehicle, and also block the wheels if you have to stop on a slope and leave the vehicle. If you are in a rocky area, pulling up to a large rock to stop the vehicle from rolling, then putting it in Park would prevent problems.

    hey madrid joe...i see on a couple of threads you mentioned your filthy windshield...carry a spray bottle filled with distilled water and a couple of micro fiber cloths...works like a charm...just don't make a swirling motion with the cloths...just straight up and down works best for us on both sides of the windshield...also, having a rear window panel helps cut down on the dust...clean it the same way...visibility is important to me with my old eyes!...

    Thanks for the useful advice!

    Regarding the windshield, more experienced drivers scared the hell out of me suggesting I'd scratch it if I used any form of cloth while it's still dirty, so I clean it with pressurized water (?) once I reach a gas station -this system would be impossible in places like Morocco. I'll give the distilled water + microfiber a try.
