Steering column? The link didn't work so I went back to realoem after finding this short description of how to get to the right wheel sensor here

I found the parts location diagram for the ABS control unit but not for the set of "steering column" and "wheel" sensors yet. Yuck. There's even a sensor in the ABS unit itself (see number 3 below).

So how many sensors do we need to test anyway?

1. The 1 ABS "repair module" (in the passenger side of the engine compartment)
2. The 3 "steering angle" sensors (somewhere in the steering wheel)
3. The 4 ABS sensors in each of the four wheels (apparently the rear drivers side also controls the speedometer)
4. Any other sensors we need to look at?
