My alignment is off really bad. Im waiting for my RTABs to come on Wednesday so I can take it to get an alignment. My car has the DSC, yellow brake, tire pressure monitor and SMG light on. Its clearly the steering angle position sensor lighting these up. It use to only come on after 5 minutes of driving but now these lights stay on as soon as I start it. Once I get my alignment how should I go about turning the lights off? Will they reset themselves? Can I just disconnect the battery? Or should I have someone reset them with a computer? Thanks in advance guys.

check codes to see if not a wheel speed sensor or any module causing the lights. also pa soft has an option in there to recalibrate the szl.

Lol you were the only one I was hoping to post in this thread. Thanks man. But I'm certain it's not a wheel speed sensor. Still going to read the codes when I clear them. I wish I knew someone local that had PA software.

Post in your regional section, there are several people out there with GT1/DIS/INPA that can read / reset / calibrate for you.
In order to finish FIRST, you MUST first FINISH !

threads like these frighten the heck out of my because I wouldn't know where to start to troubleshoot the issue.
Im in the need of rtabs but I only know that because I went to align my car, and they told me I needed the rtabs replaced.

thank gawd, this forum keeps alive.
