Possible causes

  • Adjust steering angle sensor neutral position
  • Faulty Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Actuator and Electric Unit (Control Unit)

Tech notes

The C1163 code is usually triggered when the vehicle is out of alignment or after performing a wheel alignment. After performing a wheel alignment the "Steering Angle Sensor" needs to be reset. Some wheel alignment machines are capable to reset the sensor after the alignment, otherwise an special OBDII scanner (with access to the ABS system) needs to be used to reset the sensor.

Possible symptoms

  • Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Warning Light ON
  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

C1163 Infiniti Description

The steering angle sensor detects the rotation amount, angular velocity and direction of the steering wheel, and transmits the data to the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Actuator and Electric Unit (Control Unit) via Control Area Network (CAN) communication. The ABS Actuator and Electric Unit monitors the Steering Angle Sensor. The ABS Actuator and Electric Unit set the OBDII code when the Steering Angle Sensor is not to factory specifications.
