Steering Angle Sensor Reset

Recommended Posts

I have a 2003 C2 with PSM and am getting a suspension alignment this week at an independent shop following installation of a set of adjustable upper rear control arms.

In the 996 factory workshop manual it says "The steering angle sensor must be recalibrated if the previous wheel adjustment values for vehicles with PSM were changed! The steering angle sensor actual value must be checked after a suspension alignment which resulted in no changes being made to the wheel alignment values. The Porsche System Tester 2 is necessary to calibrate the steering angle sensor and to check the steering angle actual value."

Whew! So does this mean that I must take my car to a Porsche dealership shop to have this sensor reset performed or can it be done using a Durametric. I have the latter, but have not used it enough to know its full capabilities.

Thanks for any information on this subjefct.

I live in Northern Colorado.

I just got my Durametric a couple of months ago. It is supposed to have the latest software update. Are you maybe referring to the beta version of Durametric software that is available by download? I have not gotten that.

OK, I just checked the Durametric website and they say that the new beta version of the software will read and clear codes related to the ABS/PSM 5.7 system of my car. I will see if this is true and report my results after I get my alignment finished.

I can tell you that I recently did the exact same thing with my 2003 C2 with PSM. I put on a set of adjustable upper rear control arms and took the car in to an excellent indie shop for alignment. I then used my Durametric with the most recent beta update of the Durametric software to reset the sensor angle. No problems,

Good luck.
