Please help before son throws PS4 out the window!! Wheel wont sync!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys hope you can help

we just bought our son a PS4 which came with the RWA wheel setup.

We turned on F1 2016 and plugged the pedals into the back of the wheel. And the wheel USB into the front of the PS4.

When we go to game settings it only has dual shock controller to chose from.

The only button that works on the game via the wheel is the PS button. Pressing this allows us to go to the blue main PS4 menu and scroll around using ther wheel. As soon as you press PS button again it goes back to the game and the wheel does nothing.

What are we doing wrong please?!?!

Have you gone to the input/control settings menu to make sure the default device is the wheel? This is usually a thing on PC, not sure about PS4. FYI, I don't have F1 2016 but the similar thing happens on Dirt 4.
