Steering Angle Sensor: Description and Operation

DESCRIPTION

NOTE: Steering angle sensor is part of the airbag clockspring and is not serviced separately from the clockspring.

Under transient cornering conditions the lateral acceleration sensor does not measure the true side to side force on the car. In order to compensate for this
the system uses the driver's steering command (Steering angle sensor) and vehicle speed to estimate the true sway force. This signal is matched with the
lateral acceleration sensor signal to ensure a significantly-reduced transient side to side force of the vehicle body.
