yes

on the scanner, with the steering wheel straight, what does scanner read for syeering angle?
Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

288 and delta is 0

it should be no more than 15 degrees in either direction, you most likely have a bad steering sngle sensor, have you checked the steering column and the output shaft for any damage?

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

no damage that i can see, no code set in sas, but code was set in abs and also would this cause the esp bas lite to come on?

Yes, with this code, both the abs and esp light will be illuminated, it wont set a code in the sas system,Tim
