If you want to calibrate steering wheel angle sensor / reset steering wheel angle sensor on BMW 1 / 2 / 3 /4/5 /6 / 7 series work on X3 X5 and Z3 Z4 models, the procedure is super simple it takes just a few minutes but you have to have the right tool and I will share one of the cheapest scanners Foxwell NT650 that can do that with you.
Let’s go ahead to show you what needs to be done on a 3 series BMW for example.
You may actually have the traction control light and brake light on due to a bad or not calibrated steering angle sensor. If you have done some front end work, front end alignment or anything that could cause the steering to be affected it could trigger traction control and brake light because the steering angle sensor will need to be reset / calibrated.
Let’s go ahead what needs to do done with Foxwell NT650:
Find out OBD2 port and connect it now with nt650.
The vehicle needs to be on a perfectly leveled ground when we do that we have to have the ignition on.
