Steering Angle Sensor Problem 2006 325xi

I Purchased a 2006 325xi e90 and the abs traction control and break and 4x4 lights are on. I get 3 abs codes. Steering column switching center internal fault, steering angle sensor DSC, and Instrument cluster code. The lights on the dash come on after about 2 seconds once i start the car. I removed the steering wheel and found out that it was from a 2008 e90 seeing that it had paddle shifters that didnt work. The steering angle sensor also had 2008 written on it. I now purchased a used steering angle sensor and switching center and the abs lights are constantly on now. PLEASE HELP! THANK YOU

I'm pretty sure that's re-initializing the SAS, not calibrating it.

You need to code the SLZ in your car and calibrate it with ISTA.

Well let me first correct myself....It's SZL (not SLZ) and it's the module that the SAS communicates with. So if you have a new, used SAS, then I don't think you need to code it in. You would however need to calibrate it.

You can find ISTA online for free but it's not exactly easy to setup/maintain. I would try to find someone in your area with the setup and have them calibrate the sensor.

I think your dealer is trying to do a couple of thing....1) they want you to buy the part from them. 2) In the event the calibration does not work, they do not want to be held liable. ie they don't want to deal with a customer who doesn't want to pay because the issue isn't fixed. So they are trying to prevent a headache for themselves.

Ok i understand. So i now have another used SZL and SAS so i will put them in tonight. Is there any way that the lights will automatically go out. Or do they for sure have to be calibrated.

Well SZL needs to be coded into the car. SAS you might be able to get away without calibrating it, but you should.

Regardless, if you do have a SLZ to swap in, it needs to be coded.

Yes. I can code it in but do not have an ISTA setup to calibrate the sensor.

Check bmwcoding.com regional section and see if someone in your area is available.

ok perfect thank you i will update tommorow after i install new part and calibrate. Do you know why i would have an instrument cluster code? as well my engine light is on and the only codes are ambiant air sensor and oil level sensor. i purchased the oil level sensor a used one off line. Would you know if those are plug and play or do they need programing?

Some of the older software would work to.

Some of the older software would work to.
Such as the base coder software or DIS57 .
Probably could be done by and Indy to.
