Dealer instructed to replace steering angle sensor(since they could not communicate with the sensor) then have vehicle aligned and then calibrate replacement sensor. Did that and drove about 10 miles to get home when BAS/ESP light came on again. Asked owner/mechanic to reset light. He did and said he saw a code for a "lateral" sensor(but he did not think it influenced the existing problem). He also stated that if the light came on again-there was nothing more he could do to help.  Any ideas to correct this problem.


Lateral sensor could be the problem. Especially if the code was for that sensor.


Also what is the code in the Abs esp module  

Thank you.  Original MB printout indicated  steering angle sensor codes:C1140-006/007/011 and ESP lateral acceleration sensor code C1142.

You had two problems and you only fixed one. The lateral sensor is also an issue that needs to be fixed. 

It could be the sensor or the wiring to it.
