In this video today we talk about how to perform a steering angle sensor reset/calibration using the Launch X431 Diagun scan tool. Reset/calibration of a steering angle sensors may be needed after after steering sensor replacement, alignment, or even and airbag deployment. A technician can normally perform a reset/calibration with a scan tool, or even factory equipment while using a j2534 unit, the Drew Technologies is a popular unit. Sometimes the vehicle will need to be on an alignment rack depending on the manufacturer. This procedure resets the steering angle to match the vehicle's new thrust line after the alignment has been completed. A steering angle reset has become a necessary last step in a wheel alignment.
