Last year after a ride around the island of Guam my DPS trouble light came on and the DPS stopped working. I pulled the fuse to ensure it would not come on intermittently and cause me problems such as during traffic or on a curve. Its been easy to drive with manual steering and I have not had any issues except the annoying DPS trouble light and orange screen that pops up routinely and when coming to a stop. I'm in the military stationed here in Guam. It's not be feasible to take it to my next duty station and I will need to sale it here.

 

Before I sell my Spyder I will need to troubleshoot and repair the DPS issue. Any ideas what should be done prior to shelling out $900+ for a replacement power steering pump? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Update:

So here's what I've done so far:
1. Replaced the battery.
2. Checked all terminals clean and tight.
3. Read the codes: P0551 (Torque sensor open) & P0552 (Torque sensor shorted to gnd).
4. Removed and replaced the DPS relay.
5. Priced a replacement DPS...became disgusted!
6. No authorized CAN AM dealers/service shops in Guam
