    Im using T80 and pedals are switched weird in GranTurismo 4. Gas is left and break is right pedal, which is super confusing. Does anyone know how to resolve this and change it? Ive looked into every single option menu in the game and couldnt find anything.

      Do you have the small physical switch on the wheel set to PS3 or PS4?

    I have a PS4 and T80 wheel. Have tried both modes to try to get it to work with Dirt Rally (supported) and WRC5, but in both cases once the game fires up, the only button on the wheel that will work is the PS button. When not in a game, the buttons on the wheel work just fine. Inside each game, the standard controller will work fine, but not the wheel.

    Any ideas on what is happening? Bought this system used and all worked fine for the previous owner.

      I have been unhappy with my T80 Wheel but I THINK the issues are game developer related and not hardware related. At a big picture level, I think Sony should have a ‘Wheel Tuning’ applet in the SETTINGS.

    Hello, I have a PS3 and I have the T80. I am having trouble with the the T80 and gran Tourismo 5. All the buttons work but the steering. I cannot turn the car left or right, gas/brake pedals work fine. The steering does work when I play F1 racing game. I tried following the steps on but still does not work.

      It sounds like a defective unit. I would warranty replace/return it.
