You need to initialize the module. Download Focccus and under ABS, click on Initialize. The light should flash a few times then turn off.

I downloaded FoCCCus 0.8.6 and "Initialized ECU" in the ABS Module. The separate ABS indicator flashed momentarily and turned off after this. However, the issue still persisted, and the Stability Control indicator is still illuminated. Note, the ABS Module was not illuminated, but instead, the Stability Control indicator was and still is. I'm not saying the ABS module ISN'T the root cause but just clarifying if there was a miscommunication.

This error is causing a notification that my "Hill Start Assist" if that gives any more insight about what could be the root cause. Any ideas? The procedure before that caused this was reflashing the BCM to turn cruise control on after installing a new steering wheel into the car. Cruise works flawlessly.

I can give some more information about DTC codes that are present on ForSCAN if that would help someone diagnose what could have happened. SASM, ABS(4 of these), GPSM are three of the modules that I remember showing DTC Codes found with ForSCAN that read as "not illuminated".

I don't know how to correct this issue, if anyone can lend a helping hand, it would be much appreciated!

Also, there was a separate wiring harness that was present on the new steering wheel that was not present on the stock steering wheel. It is black with three wires leading out of it, one slot perpendicular above two parallel slots. The cruise control works with no issue, so I don't believe that this harness has anything to do with the cruise switch. I believe, but am not sure, that this harness is for the heating elements of a heated steering wheel (That my base model S is not equipped with). I let it sit unplugged behind the airbag when installing. This may or may not play into the issue I am seeing, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to add. Can anyone confirm this?

Alright, so I have some more information. The codes are as follows;

SASM Module: C1B00:85-2F - Steering Angle Sensor; Symptom: Signal Above Allowable Range

ABS Module: C0051:96-2B - Steering Wheel Position Sensor; Symptom: Component Internal Failure

PSCM Module: U0428:00-0A - Invalid Data Received from Steering Angle Sensor Module

These are the codes that cannot be removed by clearing the DTC's, but I was able to clear the codes through "Calibrate Steering Angle Sensor" in the ABS Module and doing a "Module Reset" in the SASM Module in the Service functions on ForSCAN. These functions were finicky and were interrupted often, but once they were both complete, the indicator went away, and there were no DTC codes.

I thought I was a-ok until;

It is starting to look like the Steering Angle/Position Sensor was damaged, or needs to be recalibrated after the steering wheel swap. Gonna catch some flak for this but during the install, I DID NOT tape the clock spring to keep it from rotating. I know for a fact that it spun, but I do not know how much. Post install, I could turn the wheel clockwise until it locked with power steering assisting all the way. However, when I turned it counterclockwise, I could only get 180 deg before power steering stopped assisting. This is also when all of the codes would come back on if I had previously cleared them through the above resets. When I continued to turn this direction manually until lock, power steering assisted the whole range of rotation from then until I shut the car off. (Interestingly enough, there one full rotation left until full lock, so I believed that the clock spring had rotated a full rotation during the install. I then decided to take the wheel back off and rotate the clock spring a full rotation. After reassembly, I had power steering throughout the full range of rotation for the steering wheel.)

I am now stuck with the Stability Control indicator illuminated, and cannot successfully recalibrate the systems, as they just come right back after I turn the steering wheel AT ALL. I am hoping that there is a procedure to reset these malfunctioning modules and that I did not just ruin a sensor. If anyone can provide any help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot, this had been quite a headache.

Update: SOLVED

As you can probably see from the DTC codes, the root cause seems to clearly be pointing towards the steering angle sensor. I understood this, but was attacking the issue by trying to re-calibrate, thinking I could just assign a new "zero" to the sensor. That's not the case. I ended up needing to disassemble the steering wheel and rotate the clock spring until the steering angle sensor read close to 0 through Forscan. Once this was complete and I reassembled the steering wheel the codes were cleared, and I regained stability control.

Some interesting points:

I was only able to read continuous values from the steering angle sensor with forscan after disconnecting the battery for around 5 mins. Once the wheel turned to a max value (somewhere around 24,450°) it became constant, regardless of rotation of the clock spring. Only by turning the wheel in the direction towards 0° was I able to not lock up the value being read at a max value. This condition also seemed to determine if I was able to successfully (complete) an ABS module steering wheel angle calibration. If this value locked up at max, the calibration was interrupted.

After seeing the real solution, it seems obvious. Lessons learned would be to take your time, and FULLY adhere to the recommended procedure. Taping the clock spring initially would have completelty avoided this situation. As always, thank you for your input, and I look forward to more communication with this community as I own my Focus.

Some of the codes may be the same but I think the fusions have different BCM, so make a backup and use at you own risk
