2001 cadillac sls: Cannot locate where the steering wheel position sensor in order to replace it. I have located the two relays for up and down, and in and out motion of the wheel, but do not know where to install the new sensor I bought. Can any one help with this?
Dealer wants $450.00 to fix, by replacing the sensor. Can I just go to junk yard and replace the sensor. Where is the sensor location?
Service Stability Message comes on from time to time, I was told that it was the air ride shocks that needes to be replaced or the module. After reading about other 02 SLS problems that cause the message to apear it may infact be the Failed Steering Wheel Position Sensor fail, which also results in the service stability message being displayed.
When I further research and repair the problem i will keep you all advised. Thank you

Service Stability System and ABS light warning came on intermittently. Now the braking system kicks occasionally without warning on right turns making it impossible to drive as it keeps putting the brakes on. Not yet diagnosed or repaired.

I recieve this same message. If I rest it goes away sometimes for a week or so and then it returns.
02--2015, during cold weather, my stability message came on for service, then a week or two later my electrical system needs service came on and cruise control stopped work. Right now I am waiting to get in for service. Do not have any answers, have already spent thousands of dollars on this can over the years.
