Steering wheel blocked and computer UCH replaced

Allmost 2 years ago a computer in my Megane has been replaced because off an error with the lights. When a person tries to open the door, the light went on and within a couple of hours the battery was empty.

They replaced the computer and the problem was solved.

Now i'am facing a new problem. When trying to start the display shows that the steering wheel is blocked and the car can't start.
Now they tell me the UCH must be replaced because of water damage.

Can anyone tell me if this is the same computer or is recognizing this problem and is having a solution? THNX

One of the UCH 's many jobs is to control the interior courtesy light. I'd say you're right in thinking that this is the same computer that was replaced last time.

If the computer is malfunctioning due to water damage, then it probably will need replacing as they suggest. Unfortunately, you can't use second-hand parts as they're one-shot coded to link to the other computers in the car.

hmm normally if the message steering wheel blocked comes up it normally means you are parked aginst the kirb or simular which means when the computer trys to get the steering lock off it can't fight the resistance. so if your car is not up aginst the kirb more than likely be the lock itself. if it is against the kirb pull the wheel with your hand when you press the start button to see if it comes off.
