Hi,my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to try to assist you with this.I may need more information in some cases to help with answering your question.

The first thing that needs done here is to have the fault codes read out of the abs computer to see if any codes are set.If any codes are set these codes will need diagnosed to locate and repair this issue here.If there are no codes set try starting the engine and turning the steering from one side to the other until the steering stops then turning the opposite direction until the steering stops and repeat all in one motion without stopping to see if this will recalibrate the steering position sensor.

If this does not work then there should be at least one fault code set in one of the computers that will need diagnosed and repaired to correct this issue here.In some cases places like Auto Zone can read out these codes at no charge to you.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.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
