Improved NEW OEM Steering Lock Actuator Motor for Access Start Authorization Steering Lock J518 Module. The module is a part of vehicle's steering column. Module
failure is a common issue in Audi 2005-2011 A6/S6 and 2007-2015 Q7 model
vehicles. The issue is typically identified by no start and no
response from key in the ignition, or proximity access (Start button).
The Start / Stop Authorization Module (along with the Electronic
Ignition Switch) is responsible for key/transponder recognition,
unlocking/locking of steering wheel and powering up all modules in the
vehicle. If there is an issue with any of the lock module components
(actuator motor, sensing micro switches, relay) or the integrated
Immobilizer system Microprocessor/PCB, the module will not provide power to Terminal 15 (ignition on). End result, no ignition and no engine start. The module will typically store "00288 - Steering Column Lock Actuator (N360) - Defective" fault.

note that while actuator motor failure is common, it does not necessarily
mean a 100% fix for module related issues. Changing only the actuator
motor may or may not resolve the actual problem. There are other
problematic components within the module that may fail and result in fault code "00288 - Steering Column Lock Actuator (N360) - Defective".
We offer a Comprehensive Repair Service that covers all problem areas within the module and offer Lifetime Warranty.
