Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi. It sounds like you have a problem with the steering angle sensor. All those systems, uphill assist, ESC, electric steering, work off of the steering angle sensor. I have replaced several of these before. What would be best though, is if you could get the abs module checked for codes.
Also, what could cause what you have if the front end took damage from hitting something or a pothole. Or being hit in the wheel in a parking lot. If a tie rod is bent, or etc... that could mess with the steering angle sensor, or have damaged a wheel speed sensor, and would likely cause a hard pull.
Check underneath for damage and also get the codes checked. Is that something you can do?
The dealer or a shop that can do alignments need to reset the steering angle sensor generally. But if you have a damaged part and it is replaced and all the sensors come back into alignment, there is a chance that nothing will have to be reset. Thanks.
