Toyota Corolla trouble code C1290

VEHICLE: 2009 Toyota Corolla S 1.8L, L4, MFI, DOHC, VIN L, Eng Desg 2ZRFE

MILEAGE: 56,000

Customer Concern:
The vehicle came in for a front brake job. We performed the brake job and when we were finished, trouble code C1290 was set.

Tests: 1. Perform the zero point calibration for the steering angle sensor.

Potential Causes: Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) Calibration

Confirmed Fix: Performed Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) Calibration

Tech Tips: When performing a brake job, make sure that when the wheels are turned from side to side, that the steering wheel is used to turn the wheels. Do not turn the wheels from side to side by grabbing the wheels and turning them. This can upset the calibration of the steering angle sensor.
