Stability track came on while driving, and notice a jerking motion.
Stabilitrak service light kept coming on. Dealership replaced steering sensor and now it is fine.

angle steering wheel sensor was replaced yesterday by a Cadillac dealership.. Light is no longer on but car seems to steer kinda stiff.. Is this normal--just purchased the car right after the sensor was installed so I don't know how it is supposed to feel.. Had a previous 2008 dts and it didn't feel this tight or stiff to steer. The current model is the DTS PERFORMANCE MODEL--previous model was the DTS lUXARY 11 MODEL. Are these two models of the same year supposed to have a difference in the how stiff the steering is? How will I know if the sensor is functionally correctly other that the light going off ??
