I also had check Traction control, and check Stabilitrak.

Most common thing I've seen for those is a problem with the steering angle sensor but you will want to have related diagnostic codes checked before replacing anything. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Thank you, ***** ***** the steering angle sensor located?

Here is a picture but new sensor needs to be calibrated at dealership with capable scantool so you will want to make sure codes are checked before replacing parts. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Is there a video on how to change it? the part looks like it has wires and I am not sure how it goes in.

It has a bolt connected to it so it can only go in one way where bolt lines up. I'll see if I can find a video.

I'm not able to find a video but if you have questions send me pictures and I can try to walk you through it. Thanks.

I looked at the part at auto zone but it has wires like it gets connected to something.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I wasn't sure exactly how to install. But I will try and will send you pictures if necessary.
Thank you.

The solenoid does have a connector that plugs into it but it is a simple unplug old solenoid and plug in new solenoid. Keep me updated, thanks.
