    WARNING
    Unless the initialization procedure of the steering angle sensor is completed, the DSC will not operate, causing an unexpected accident. Therefore, always perform the initialization procedure to ensure DSC operation if the power supply to the steering angle sensor has been cut off due to disconnection of the steering angle sensor connector or negative battery cable, or any other cause.


    NOTE
    The initialization value of the steering angle sensor is stored using the battery power supply. Therefore, the battery power supply of the steering angle sensor is cut and the stored initialization value is cleared when any of the following items are performed.



    Negative battery cable disconnection
     
    Steering angle sensor connector disconnection
     
    Fuse (ROOM 15A) removal
     
    Wiring harness disconnection between battery and steering angle sensor connector
     
    Inspect the wheel alignment, inflation pressure, and the installation condition of the steering wheel
     
    If there is any malfunction, adjust the applicable part
     
    Connect the negative battery cable
     
    Turn the ignition switch to the ON position
