Good morning,

It sounds like the steering angle sensor got off centered. While performing the transaxle replacement did you secure the steering wheel in one position? I usually tie them in place with the seat belt.

I'm sorry, I am not available for a phone call at the moment.

If the wheel moved while you were replacing the transaxle and the steering shaft was allowed to rotate it could have either un-centered the steering angle sensor, or damaged the clockspring assembly.

Do you have a scan tool that will perform a steering angle sensor re-learn?
