New Car Steering Angle Sensor in Hamilton

What is a steering angle sensor?

The steering angle sensor is an important part of your car’s electronic stability control (ESC) system. Its purpose is to measure the angle of your steering wheel inputs and send the data to your car’s electronic control units. 

The steering angle sensors are in your car’s steering column next to the steering wheel. More than one sensor is usually present in case one of the sensors fails. Some sensors use electrical signals to measure steering wheel position (analog) whereas others use LED lighting to measure steering wheel position (digital).

Causes of broken steering angle sensors:

Although the steering angle sensors are designed to last the life of your car, they can sometimes break due to wear, faulty wiring, car water leaks or physical damage to the steering column. When the sensors fail, they will need to be replaced in order to restore normal steering function.

 

Symptoms of faulty steering angle sensors:

Traction control light is on – The traction control light will illuminate if a problem is detected in your car’s steering angle sensor and electronic stability system. 

Steering wheel feels jolty or incorrect–  A faulty steering angle sensor can send incorrect information to your car’s on board computer (ECU). This can cause the computer to provide incorrect steering adjustments which can affect the steering of your car.

Steering wheel feels loose – A bad steering angle sensor may also lead to your car’s steering feeling looser and less responsive than normal. this is due to the reasons mentioned above.
