I replaced airbag clock spring on the steering wheel and now the traction control light comes on when we go over 10 mph. It never happened before. Is it just a coincidence? Or are the connection?

This car has ESP (electronic stability program)? The steering angle sensor may be part of the clockspring or mounted just underneath it. If you disconnected the battery to service the airbag/clockspring, it may need re-initializing.

Yes it has the ESP from googling everything I can find. It seems it can be recalibrated. My scan tool won’t do it of course. Found a way to do it manually by jumping the CG and the TD pins in the OBD Plug. The only problem is I can’t figure out which one is the TS pin. Seems to be a vendor option pin in a different place by manufacturer I think.

ABS VERIFICATION TEST


WARNING:​
To avoid possible serious or fatal injury, check brake capability is available before road testing.​

NOTE:​
If the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Module, Clockspring/Steering Angle Sensor (SAS), or Dynamics Sensor were replaced, or if any mounting problems with Clockspring/SAS or Dynamics Sensor, ABS Module must be initialized using the scan tool. If not initialized, the ABS indicator will flash continuously with no DTCs. To initialize the ABS Module and clear offsets have wheels pointing straight ahead and follow the directions on the scan tool. The drive test requires a 90° turn. If the Dynamics Sensor was replaced, test drive the vehicle by turning the vehicle left or right in a curving manner at a velocity between 10 and 25 km/h (6 and 15 mph).​

1.​
Turn the ignition off.​

2.​
Connect all previously disconnected components and connectors.​

3.​
Verify all accessories are turned off and the battery is fully charged.​

4.​
Verify that the ignition is on, with the scan tool, erase all Diagnostic Trouble Codes from All modules. Start the engine and allow it to run for two minutes and fully operate the system that was indicating the failure.​

5.​
Turn the ignition off and wait five seconds. Turn the ignition on and using the scan tool, read DTCs from all modules.​

6.​
If any Diagnostic Trouble Codes are present, return to symptom list and trouble shoot new or recurring symptom.​


NOTE:​
For Sensor Signal and Pump Motor faults, the ABS Module must sense all 4 wheels at 12 km/h (7.5 mph) before it will extinguish the ABS indicator.​

7.​
If there are no DTCs present after turning ignition on, road test the vehicle for at least five minutes. Perform several anti-lock braking stops.​

8.​
Again, with the scan tool read DTCs. If any DTCs are present, refer to the Table of Contents in the applicable Section for the diagnostic test procedure and troubleshoot the new or recurring symptom.​

9.​
If there are no Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) present, and the customer's concern can no longer be duplicated, the repair is complete.​

thanks for the info. I have a buddy bringing his snap-on scan tool over tomorrow to initialize ABS module.

The steering angle sensor is initialized during the 90° turn. I have never tried it without a scan tool. It may need to be put into a 'learn' mode. Try this in a parking lot.
