H​ello, the code is for the steering angle sensor, it may need to be replaced or possibly just re calibrated, this code can also come up after there is any kind of front end repair or if an alignment has been done and the sensor is not re calibrated.

Steering angle has been recalibrated. Code still there. Your saying steering angle sensor??? What is the part #
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Toyota says yaw sensor. Steering angle as far as I know is part of clockspring....
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 month ago

The code you provided earlier is for the steering angle sensor, the yaw rate/deceleration sensor would be a different code, I'm only going by the code you stated earlier and the definition of the code.

Im stating that Toyota says for the code I sent you. Is the yaw sensor. Your saying steering angle sensor. I want to know the part # your saying. I agree with you. But Toyota is trying to sale is us the yaw.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I already diag this as the steering angle sensor prior to creating this account... but they can't seem to find a part # for it.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 month ago

Thanks for the clarification, are you interested in an aftermarket sensor or only OEM from Toyota?

O​k, did a little research, the steering angle sensor is incorporated into the spiral cable (clock spring) I got this part number from a Toyota dealer for your VIN# *****

Please keep in mind that the new sensor will still need to be calibrated.

The price at a local dealer (southern calif) is $506. 00
