Hello, A couple things I would like to ask first. When you installed the angle sensor, did you preload it? Or was it just put into place then bolted down? Second, did you reinitialize the system after replacing both of these components? There is a procedure for syncing up the computer with these parts, and must be performed. Does your display show -- at the gear indication area meaning there is a fault?
