Looks like I be buying a new steering angle sensor.

Pics aren't necessary. Just disconnect the battery, and remove the airbag. Steering wheel bolt is beneath that, pop your steering wheel off and the columb assembly is right there containing it all.

Do a search and download a factory service manual from here, it will detail with pics how to do this.

Got a similar issue going on now. I got a cheap scanner that reveals a C0700 code, but no idea what the code is related to. Im going try an alignment, than disconnect the battery.

Do yourself a favor and buy an ABS specific scanner. Regular OBD-2 scanners won't pick up these codes.

Of course, put the new steering angle sensor in, damn lights came on quick! I did have my turn signal on though, and only during left turns.

Clockspring is next. Hope my dealer has one in stock, although if they do like the SAS, you know they are a commonly replaced item!

No joke!

All the steering wheel functions work though, all the steering wheel controls, multifunction control. Could the clockspring still be bad?

you might need to do a angel sensor cal.
turn the car on and center the wheel. Then take the wheel full left, then full right, and then back to center. Once at center, turn the car off.
I say do it one extra time, and then go drive it around for a few miles so the computer recalculates what is normal. I had to do that after my compression link was replaced because when I was having to constantly correct for rear end wandering, the computer got ticked off. It took about 20min of driving before the computer was "ok, we are good now".
