The power steering would turn all the way left when starting the engine. I unplugged the wire at the top of the steering box just under the dash, it goes to a square sensor maybe , on the steering unit then plugged it back up. Now no power steering at all. Could that sensor? be bad? Anyone had this problem with this model? Thanks for any ideas,Jessy

the PS on my TG1860G has come and gone several times since I bought it new in 1998. On one occasion after I replaced the battery, the steering would pull to the left as soon as I started the engine.
The Workshop Service Manual has a procedure on page 5-S20 that remedied the issue for me.
I'll paraphrase it for you...

-jack up the front axle & support it in 2 places such that the front axle can't wobble up or down.
-turn the steering wheel left, then right, then stop at centre (straight ahead).
-find the service connector at the bottom right side of battery looking from front of tractor, at top of electronics module (a square connector with a loop back wire)
-turn ignition key on, do not start.
-unplug the service connector loopback.
-turn off the ignition key.
-re-connect the service connector loopback.
-lower front wheels to the ground, start engine and check for proper PS operation.

hope this works for you.

Pete
