Hicas - What ?

Recommended Posts

Hi - i've been told that my car has this - (really) - if so what is it ?

also been told its something like:

independent hydraulic all wheel steering !!!!

Is this just a load of bulll or does it actually exist ?

If so - why does my red HICAS light come on for 5 mins when i drive then go off ? - is this a "level" thing

Would really appreciate any info - thanx

HICAS and Super HICAS is fitted to improve handling rather than as a parking aid.


Earlier HICAS versions used hydraulics to steer the rear wheels.

The hydraulic system was powered by the power steering pump and used speed sensors

to determine how much and which direction to steer the rear wheels. Later versions,

called Super HICAS, moved to an electric actuator for the rear steering rack,

making the system much lighter. The Super HICAS system also used its own computer

to control the system instead of speed sensors. HICAS and Super HICAS rear wheel steering

is limited to about 1 degree in either direction.
