F1 22 – Steering Wheel Not Working / Not Detected | How to Fix

Are you getting random error messages while using your Steering Wheel like “Controller Disconnected” or “Steering Wheel Not Detected” or it just does not work at all with F1 22 but fine with other games ? Then this guide will help you fix any Steering Wheel issues with the new F1 22 game.

F1 22 – Steering Wheel Not Working / Not Detected | How to Fix

F1 22 is a racing video game developed by Codemasters and published by EA Sports. It is the fifteenth entry in the F1 series by Codemasters. The game holds an official license of the 2022 Formula One and Formula 2 championships.

Racing games are best when you play it with Steering Wheels like the Logitech G923, G29, Thrustmaster T248 and more. However it seems like a lot of users are currently facing a problem with the wheels in F1 22.

A lot of them a complaining about the wheel getting disconnected with an error “controller disconnected” or the would not identify the wheel or rather show a message “Not Detected”. Wheels are no cheap controllers. They are quite expensive and I know there are a lot of people who buy wheels just to play racing games like F1 22.

This is why we are here. To talk about possible fixes for any Steering Wheel related problems.

How to Fix Steering Wheel Problems :

Here are a few fixes which you can try to see if the Steering Wheel problems get fixed for you or not.

Lets start off with the basics :

  • The first thing you have to do is to make sure that the controller is working or not.
  • For that go to Control Panel>> Hardware and Sound>> View devices on your PC and check if the Wheel is detected or not.
  • If the Steering wheel is not detected over there then change the USB port to check and see if the prob lies with the port or if it is the wheel. If the problem is with the wheel then unfortunately you would have to get it replaced as it could be a faulty one.

If the Wheel works fine but does not work with F1 22 only :

  • Launch Steam
  • Go to Library and then Home
  • Now Select F1 22
  • Right click and select Properties
  • On the left select Controller
  • Now under Override for F1 22 click on the drop down and select Enable Steam Input.
  • Restart Steam

If this still does not fix the issue then do these steps :

  • Go to Big Picture Mode
  • Now go to Library
  • Now select F1 2022
  • Click on Manage Game
  • Now select Controller Options
  • Under Steam Input per-game setting click on the drop down and select Forced On 

This should fix the problem with the Steering Wheel not getting detected or randomly disconnecting all the time in game. If it doesn’t it could a problem from the developers end. Wait for a patch fix if that be the case.
