If you can scan it, cool. Also, many auto parts stores will scan for free.

Just had this fixed on mine. It happens intermittently when I turn the steering wheel. The problem is a failing Steering Angle Sensor in the steering wheel cluster (SZL). It's about a $550 part.

if you just had it fixed, then your mech did not do a good job. Steering wheel angle sensor requires also that it be set & calibrated correctly.

What I meant was it happenED intermittently which is why I got it fixed. The dealer's work order showed that the cluster was replaced, programmed, and calibrated. I've had the car back for a week now and so far so good. No errors.
