ABS ESP Steering Angle Sensor - no luck

Hi all,

At the dealer and I had them replace the steering angle sensor for my ongoing ABS ESP problem. I bought the car with these lights on, and with a pull to the right.

The car still throws a steering angle sensor error after it was replaced.

Here is some helpful info:
The car came with a pull to the right. I got it aligned in Jan, but dealer said control arm bushings were worn and they couldnít perform a completely accurate alignment. Car still pulls right.

Could this alignment issue be the underlying cause? Or could it be worse: maybe the P/O curbed the car and bent something crucial.

P/O had the problem diagnosed at this dealer a year ago, and dealer gave an estimate, after diagnosis, to replace steering angle sensor. Now I finally get the work done and itís still faulty.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Going to leave the car with the dealer, but if anyone has any experience so I know what to expect/suggest, that would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Nevermind. It's all fixed! They had to reseat the new sensor a couple of times. It works like a charm, even though the car pulls to the right.

Now all you have to do is replace all the worn out parts of the front suspension and you'll be all set.
