I've heard that you have to replace the sensor when you have this problem.

I'm going to assume that the steering wheel was turned while disconnected from the rack? This is a problem that moore_rb had with his 97. I've not had this problem myself so I've not had to deal with it.

The SWS does what the name implies, it senses the position of the steering wheel and is tied to the active handling by checking teh relationship of the steering wheel and the wheel speed of each wheel to see if one of the wheels needs braking to get the car straight again, If the steering wheel is turned to the right and the car;s rear is swung out tot he right is in a drift then one of the rear brake will be applied to bring the rear around. Yes you need it for the active handling

Well, for those who have replaced this part, is this a DIY repair or is a dealer only type of deal? If it is dealer only, how much will the part and labor cost at the stealership?
