Fix Forza Horizon 5 Controller Issues

Before we start with the main troubleshooting, let’s try the most basic method to fix this issue. Depending on which controller you are using to play Forza Horizon 5, make sure that the controller support is enabled on your PC.

Update Your Controller Drivers

Just like any other external peripherals, there’s a chance that your computer doesn’t have the driver dedicated to your controller. That is one of the reasons why your controller is not working in Forza Horizon 5.

If you know the manufacturer of your device, simply visit their website and download the drivers needed. You can even ask for their support for the correct driver version that you can use. If you can’t find the proper and correct controller driver for your device, you can use some third-party software that will automatically fetch the latest driver update for any available hardware connected to your PC. In our experience, we fixed the controller issues in Forza Horizon 5 by using IObit’s driver booster or Driver Easy to automatically get the latest driver update for your PC.

Third-Party Controller Support

Another method to fix your controller is by using third-party controller software. There are a lot of gamepad controllers out there, but in this guide, we highly recommend the following as we have already tested them all.

Please note that we are not associated with any of the third-party controllers that we mentioned here. The list above is based on our very own experience when we used their product.

Contact the Support

Are you still having problems with your controllers while playing Forza Horizon 5 after trying all the methods above? If so, we recommend reaching out to the official support team of Forza Horizon 5.
