Hi everyone, this is my first post I'm a new member but have been visiting the forum for a while, i have learnt alot from reading your posts, thanks to you all.

I have a mini cooper s 2002 which has the runflat and DSC lights on, I have a snap on ethos scanner which has given me codes for steering angle sensor signal and steering angle sensor internal, From looking at the steering angle data I found the steering angle to be incorrect, it is not at 0 degrees whilst in a central position, so I know I need to calibrate the steering angle sensor, my scanner does not calibrate steering angles so I contacted a friend who has a snap on modis which has the function to do this, he tried to do this but every time he clicked on the steering angle calibration button it just would not respond? A mechanic suggested only BMW dealerships can can do this? Can anyone tell me if this is correct?

Any other advice that could help me solve this fault would be very appreciated

Im having a similar issue with my AUTOENGINUITY software.

It shows an option to calibrate but it fails.

What was your solution?

I’m assuming even if you purchase the part from mini parts online and reinstall, it still needs to be calibrated. I may take my 04 to the dealer and get a full estimate and let you guys know how much is costs to repair. I’ve driving my mini (manual) in the NJ snow without DSC. NOT FUN.

i've got an Autel AP200 and this calibrates Steering Angle Sensors (SAS) without any issues.. maybe your actual SAS is knackered?
