Background information:
 
SAS, steering angle sensor is a significant element of the ESC system which control the steering wheel position angle and rate of turn. To keep it easy, the steering in a car or other vehicle is the mechanical parts of it which make it possible to steer. The SAS is located in a sensor cluster in the steering column. The cluster normally is compatible with more than one steering position sensor for confirming data. The ESC module has to receive two signals to confirm the steering wheel position. These signals are often out of phase with each other.
 
 
 
Steering Angle Calibration though Launch X431V:
 
To reset the steering angle, first find the relative zero point position for the car
to drive in straight line. Taking this position as reference, the ECU can
 
calculate the accurate angle for left and right steering.
 
After replacing the steering angle position sensor, replacing steering
mechanical parts (such as steering gearbox, steering column, end tie rod,
 
steering knuckle), performing four-wheel alignment, or recovering car body,
 
you must reset the steering angle.
