Horn/cruise control stopped working. Replaced spiral clock started working again. Then when turning lt or rt abs would lock up. Had to remove fuse. Took to Dealership was told needed to replace steering angle sensor. Ordered it and had someone replace it. Now that we replaced steering angle sensor, horn and cruise no longer working again. Can u tell me what i need to do next? Both parts i bought were for my 2012 Xterra and were brand new. 


It sounds like the steering angle sensor was not calibrated. Steering angle sensor are very tricky. Did you or the mechanic try to find the center? Turn it all the way to the left. Count the total turns as you turn it to the right. Divide the total turns by 2. Turn it back to whatever that number is. If you don't try to find the center, the ribon inside the clockspring will streach too much and brake. Which is what may have happened in your case.
