Customer Question
Hello, I just replaced...

Hello, I just replaced the intermediate steering shaft on my 2005 yukon denali and an error message now reads service stability. I accidentally turned the wheel while the shaft was disconnected...any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Thats the sum of the issue...fairly simple I belive it may have to do with the centering of the steering wheel prior to reattaching the steering shaft however i am unsure how to center the steering wheel

It is possible that there was damage to the steering wheel angle sensor when that happened. There is a service procedure for installing the new part. It basically says to reassemble with the wheels straight ahead and then remove an alignment pin pre-installed from the factory. Once done a scan tool will be needed to run a set-up test to initialize the new sensor.
