Thrustmaster T80 turning left without actually turning left

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am currently having trouble with my wheel. I am pretty sure it is a hardware problem, something to do with a sensor. Everytime I turn my wheel left and then right, the first slight turn right (after turning left usually) causes my wheel (ingame) to turn left all of a sudden until I turn it a bit further right which then it corrects itself. I have a video of what it looks like on device settings. Whenever it jolts left, that is not me turning left, I was turning the wheel slowly. I'd prefer to not send it back and if possible I am happy to open the wheel and solve the problem myself.

Here is the video - https://streamable.com/rx38h
Thanks for any help in advance.

I had the same problem when playing GT4, with a thrustmaster t80, it would randomly 

spin to the left and cause me to crash. After reading many issue about this fault, I couldn't find any solution apart from buying a new steering wheel.

i decided to take the steering apart and look inside, I was amazed to find that the cables that attach to the steering wheel and pass through the main body snag on the cables which control the steering. 3 wires control the steering, when turning the steering wheel full lock, left and right you can see how the wiring stresses the 3 wires controlling the left, right and centre positioning. Over time this causes the wires to break away from the connection.

i soldered  the wire back to where it had come off and my T80 is a good as new.

To be honest, this is really a manufacturing cock up, I have located the 3 wires below the wires coming in from the steering wheel.......

What I have noticed is the HID compliant game controller is on devices, but where it says Thrustmaster T80 is unspecified... It used to work on Windows 10 PRO, but on windows 10 HOME it doesn't same with windows xp, windows 7 ultimate, windows 7 profesional works aswell.... It's annoying i needed to get my pc fixed and they insalled win 10 home and yeah......
