Still getting dsc code 1937. Steering wheel angle offset sensor failure...
I've replaced this with an item I bought on ebay and considering its on the CAN system the serial numbers don't match up? Causing the fault? Just a thought

Think I've figured it... When I put the deep dish steering wheel on (when it had the mx5 engine and no dsc) I put it on upside down... Bloody idiot.
The slot for the cables should be at the bottom not the top. Would explain why the indicators don't cancel as they should and the dsc keeps playing up. Doesn't help I rounded a screw off and snapped the Allen head in the other

Dsc ring was 180' out. Dsc is quite sensitive, might need to change tyres and get tracking done properly
