what code are you getting?

there is NO steering angle sensor alarm, if the steering angle sensor has set a code it USUALLY must be replaced depending on what code is being set

C121a I disconnected my battery and got this alarm
Chrysler Mechanic: bill, chrysler master tech replied 2 years ago

initialization of the steering angle sensor is done with a scan tool,what type of scan tool are you using?

is this the ONLY code setting?

and what was the battery disconnected for, did you do any work on the steering system or steering wheel?

this code is not commonly set with JUST a battery disconnect

I was doing 2 things...I was changing my coolant thermostat sensor...and also cleaning my throttle body. That was the only code setting.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do not have a scan tool...I used one for free at O'Reilly
Chrysler Mechanic: bill, chrysler master tech replied 2 years ago

that is a problem then, but without a scan tool the FIRST thing to try is turn the steering wheel from center to lock to lock then back to center WHILE the car is RUNNING and see if the code goes away, if it DOES NOT then a dealer level (not necessarily a dealer but a shop that has a high end scan tool) will need to perform an ABS initialization, if the code will not go away then the steering angle sensor will need to be replaced

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
