Steering angle sensor reset

Right guys..

I've had this problem for nearly a year now and I want it gone!
Everytime I start the car I get a gazillion beeps, a big flashing red circle in the DIS, ABS/ESP lights on the dash too.

I've tried this from Rosstech Wiki with my downloaded version and eBay cable. Didn't do anything, so Tried my mates version at work. (real, paid for) Still nothing!

ESP Steering Angle Sensor Calibration
Updated  5 Aug. 2011

Ross-Tech is not responsible for any damage or problems that may result from following these instructions. They are to be used at your own risk. As always, you should refer to a Factory Repair Manual for your vehicle!

This procedure details how to perform the zero position calibration for the Steering Angle Sensor (G85) in many VW/Audi vehicles equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Program). This procedure should be performed when vehicle alignment is performed or if any of the following components have been removed or replaced:

ABS/EDL/ASR/ESP control unit (J104)

Steering Angle Sensor (G85)

Steering Column

There are certain test conditions that must be met before doing this procedure:

Start the vehicle.

Turn the steering wheel one turn to the right and one turn to the left.

Drive in a short distance straight line on a level surface at a speed not higher than 20 km/h.

If the steering wheel is straight during the test drive then stop the vehicle with the wheels pointed straight

Ensure that the steering wheel is not moved again.

Keep the engine running and do not switch off the ignition.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Procedure for performing  the zero position calibration for the Steering Angle Sensor (G85) on VW Passat and Audi A4/S4, A6/S6, and A8/S8:

[Select]
[03 - ABS Brakes]
[Login - 11]
Enter 40168
[Do It!]
[Basic Settings - 04]
Group 001
[Go!]

This will store the zero (centered) position of the steering wheel. There should be a displayed message that reads: "Steer. angle sender compens OK". If you get an error, it may mean the Login was not successfully performed.

Click the [Done, Go Back] button and you're all set.



What should I do guys..?

I'm fed up of the beeping and not being able to see anything on the DIS while driving..

Are there any faults stored??
BennyBoo

Only the ones relating to the steering angle sensor..

I'll give it a read tomorrow and see if there's anything else, but also to list what they are..

Cheers.

This is all I get..

i had this problem once, it was when my rack was changed and while it was out the wheel had been rotated 360 degrees.


go into vagcom and look see what angle your seeing on the laptop when the wheel is straight

Cheers guys i'll have a look next time i'm on VAGCOM..

It all started when I fitted the cruise control.. I 'may' have dropped the slip-ring!

The fault codes say your module isnt coded to the car, you need to go thru the whole coding procedure before you can calibrate the sensor.

Theres a login code and coding value which needs input before you do those calibration steps:

Full instructions are there.

Doing the angle sensor calibration usually erases that 'incorrectly coded' fault. Strange but true.
