Around the past decade, manufacturers have added a number of sensors to the vehicle’s steering system. One of these type of sensors, Steering Angle Sensors (SAS), are typically found in multiples inside the steering column. This is an integral part of the vehicle’s stability control system which provides an accurate reading on the position of the wheels and rate of turn. It also works with the yaw, accelerometer, and wheel speed sensors to measure the dynamics of the vehicle. For example, what the vehicle is doing, what the driver wants the vehicle to do, and what corrections need to be made by the ABS hydraulic control unit to maintain control of the vehicle.
Since vehicles have been equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as Lane Keep Assist (LKA), and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), they rely on accuracy from the Steering Angle Sensor (SAS). It's now necessary to reset these sensors after performing a wheel alignment or replacing a component that can alter the toe and thrust angle.
