My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This issue may be with a fault with the steering column angle or position sensor or an issue with wiring in the steering column being shorted or damaged needing repaired or replaced.If you have not had the wiring checked for any issues this needs done.If this is or has been done then I would have the fault codes checked with a fully compatible scan tool to see what codes are set in all computers as this will help locate and diagnose the fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
