Wheel not detected when unused for a while
I'm just looking for a procedure, trick or hint for my steering wheels, when they're not detected by the base.
Background: I'm owning several wheels for Formula and GT racing. Usual, I'm racing full seasons, means if I race a formula car, the GT wheels are just sitting there attached to a 3D-printed stand on my desk for about a couple of weeks.
When I re-attach one of my GT wheels to the CSL Elite+, the wheel is not going to be recognized immediately. I've tried it with the base powered on as well as off, several power circles, several times dismounted and re-attached the wheel, with driver interface open and closed, with PC or PS4 connected or not.
Until now, everytime the wheel was recognized after some time shuffling everyting around, but it's still some hassle. All my wheels are affected, means the BMW GT2, the 918 RSR, the Formula V2 and the F1 ESports.
Is there any trick or procedure to change the wheels without this issue? Or do I have to clean the contacts after the downtime?
