VDO Rudder Angle Sender

Anyone have experience installing a VDO Rudder Angle Sender PN44003 or something similar?

I have looked and looked but I can't find a manual, a story about installing one or even a picture of one installed.

Anyone have info or pics they can share?

Thanks,
-p

They deliver a voltage level from hard over to the other way. The calibration process finds the center. So it is a linear voltage reading hard left to right depending. Not sure which way it is for that unit but a volt meter would tell you if it was working. It should be a stead increase to decrees as you back and forth. The computer would calibrate to the center point. Not uncommon for the sender to go bad, but the course computer could be bad too (worse).

15 minutes ago the VDO site was returning no downloads at all (for anything) in their download center. Now it's working.... Thanks Christian for fixing it. ;-)

Oh and thanks for the link too!
