If you have INPA, you can very easily use this tool and look at the SAS module.

Unfortunately this sensor is a wear-item. It is actually not too hard to change as you just need to lay on your back while under the driver's foot-well.

If you need help with this, create a new thread and I can easily walk you through it using INPA.

When SAS starts to.fail you can usually recalibrate by turning the steering wheel full left to full right a couple times. Clear codes and hope for the best. My car had an SAS trifecta 2-3x in the past couple years.

I plan to get the eBay repair kit vs replacement as they are stupid expensive.
