Good afternoon you will need to set the basic settings in the steering angle sensor G85 on the steering column , you also need ton reset the basic settings with your steering stop this way the electronic power steering will work correctly , and you also have a fault for the airbag igniter to reset that (00588) and if it comes back that a look at the spiral spring , and also the harness from the spiral spring to the airbag igniter in the airbag . I hope this helps . Please dont forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided thank you
