CC ID 41 and Steering Column Failure

I have check control error 41 coming up. I've been doing some searching and I'm trying to determine if I have the typical steering column failure that will require a pricey visit to the dealership.

I do not have an icon with a steering wheel as shown in the Bentley manual, just the red exclamation triangle for code 41. There are no physical symptoms, car starts, steering wheel locks and unlocks correctly.

Is this code exclusive of the "common" failure or could it be indicative of something else?

Figured it out. So here's the catch: There are multiple 41 codes.

Originally I had been looking at the codes that are listed here and came to the first one...
http://www.endtuning.com/ccidcodes.html

The Bentley manual had the code as being for service due.

So then I went back to the end tuning site and sure enough, there are two different codes with 41.

Moral of the story: reading Internet forums can make you a car hypochondriac.

Sorry about the scare! Thanks for the heads up that there are repeated numbers, good to know so that I might save myself from freaking out in the future.
