    Replaced clock spring - now steering angle sensor problem
    Hey everyone,
    First of all, I am a by no means a mechanic - just a guy who loves his toy Zed - so please forgive if I use incorrect language  Also, this is my first post to the forum so I hope I am in the right area to post this - as it is involving electronics. 
    The airbag light started flashing and the horn stopped working in my '05 350Z so I recently replaced the clock spring. A bit of a job and a half for a novice but I got it done eventually. So, airbag lights fixed, horn works again - yay happy days! However, now when I drive the car down the road the VCD kicks in, rattles the brakes and eventually lights up the SLIP and VCD warning lights. After this the car is drives fine. I did some Googling and found that in the process of replacing the clock spring i may have accidentally misaligned the steering angle sensor. So, I have bought a VAG KKL cable and the NDSII software and done a steering angle reset. After this I drove the car but the same problem still happened (except that I made it about 3 times as far down the road).
    My best guess at this stage is that I somehow did not mount the steering angle sensor properly to the clock spring (?) - so i will have to pull the entire thing apart again and retrace my steps. Before I get the toolbox out, does anyone have any hints and tips of where I may have gone wrong and things I can/should look into to fix the problem?
    Many thanks for any tips

    G'Day all, 
    Newby 350Z owner.  Well...  from tomorrow I will be.  
    I've always liked the fantastic look of this car. For years I couldn't afford it, but now I finally can.  I have purchased a 2005 350Z 35th anniversary edition and can't wait to drive it home tomorrow!!
