Steering angle sensor fault

Post by sgc3000000 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 9:13 pm

I recently removed my steering wheel, clock spring and associated assembly including the steering angle sensor. This was to install a heated steering wheel which it turned out was damaged and so I had no choice but to reinstall the original.

Upon reassembling all and reconnecting the battery I was greeted by the 'Hill start assist not available' error message closely followed by the 'active city stop not available.

I made sure the clock spring did not rotate when it was removed and that all components were removed carefully without damage and then reassembled.

I thought, 'its ok I will just clear those on forscan and that will be that' this worked initially but then I drove a few feet and once I turned the wheel so far the system once again presented those same error messages.

The DTC is throwing the following codes:

SASM C1B00:85-2F - Steering angle signal above allowable range
ABS U0126:00-28
ABS C0051:96-2B
RCM B001:1A-AF
HCM U0428:00-0B
PSCM U0428:00-0A

Thank you for any help, it is greatly appreciated.

Does the extended license for your car have any relearn/initialization service for abs module sasm lat/long roll rate sensor calibration or anything...I've seen ppl do what u did without having to recalibrate but new cars you might have to no matter what and sometimes clearing certain dtc codes especially u codes means you have to recalibrate ...maybe it just needs to learn while driving since battery was disconnected but I'd bet you'll need to do abs esc relearn/initialization...I ve researched for days on mine last week...dead battery while driving..I turned steering wheel while it was dead...deleted u codes...had the worst esc problems...pids for esc sensors current cycle initialization test failed...alignment shops should be doing it by now but mine couldnt...delearship 90$ if u have to..does service manual say anything about repairing it and needing recalibration or deleting certain codes means u have to

Ya you ll need to recalibrate if sensor moved which usually throws off all those other codes.. is steering angle sensor (abs)pid reading 0 when straight...do u have another pid sensor in sasm... some cars learn the 0 position after turning wheel all the way left then right then center so maybe it'll go away unless... esc traction control abs light is on which means reset is needed

I have tried resetting and recalibrating everything and still no joy. I taped the clock spring when I removed the steering wheel ao it hasn’t moved, I also checked all connections.

Is there a possibility the sensor has moved slightly as all works normal when I reset until I move the wheel past half a turn anti-clockwise.
