A few more jobs sorted on the daily today.

First job was to take my track car steering wheel out and replace it with my newly refurbed ‘Snappy’ wheel.

After removal I got a few extra warning lights that I wasn’t expecting. ABS, ESP and SERV lights usually point to the steering angle sensor. It’s been fine up until now, so I guess it’s just decided to give up the ghost.

The sensor appears to be positioned correctly with the Yellow circle and Black dot centred nicely in the window.

A quick check of the live data on the diagnostic confirm my suspicions. No movement from the sensor when turning and the obligatory -81922.75 degrees fault.

Luckily I have a few spares from when my Track car had issues. It’s a fairly easy process to replace with a few torx screws to remove from the lower steering cowel and the sensor then unclips from the squib.

After replacing the sensor, the diagnostic now shows ‘0’ degrees and a quick turn left and right alters the angle telling me it’s functioning correctly.

After putting it all back together, it was just a case of clearing the old fault codes and no more lights. Happy days.

Next job is tackle the exhaust.

Hi. I’m having the same problems with a steering angle sensor issue. I had the -81922degrees. I fitted another one and I’m getting the 0degrees now but it’s not changing. When I try to do the reset function it says cannot connect. Am I doing something wrong? wrong?

Hmmm sounds like it’s something to do with the diagnostic and ODB port, not the sensor as that’s zeroing out, which is what you want.

I‘m really not that technically minded, but the good news is it sounds like you have a healthy sensor as they’re nigh on impossible to find now. I’m wondering if a reset of the hardware or an update to the software might help.
