With the wheel straight it should show a reading on the handheld scanner for angle sensor of 0 and left 600 right -600 if the reading is always 0 the sensor is bad for sure.

Thanks!

The scanner is showing no sensor is present . Is it possibel that the steering moter and sensor can be faulty at the same time.

Expert:  proautotech replied 4 years ago.
If it is not showing a sensor you will want to throw in a new one.

Yes it is possible for them both to be bad at the same time.
