Updated  29 Mar. 2005

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.
