Collision Position Statement
Position Statement: Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) Reset
To: Collision Repair Industry
Most INFINITI vehicles are now equipped with Steering Angle Sensors (SAS). The steering angle sensor is a critical part of the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) System that measures the steering wheel position angle and rate of turn. The SAS requires a reset by scan tool to help ensure proper calibration any time the alignment is adjusted for any reason.
It is the position of INFINITI that, any time an alignment is done on a vehicle equipped with Vehicle Dynamic Control, a reset of the steering angle sensor is mandatory. In addition, if any component of the steering or suspension system is damaged on an INFINITI vehicle, or removed/installed, a reset of the SAS will be required where applicable, regardless of whether or not an indicator light is displayed on the dash.
The safety of our customers is our number one concern at INFINITI, and we ask that the repair industry adhere to these strict guidelines going forward.
