No just thought it might be because it was parked on such a steep angle. Drives door at the lowest point probably 45° angle
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
It is not likely from being parked at an angle, the car is designed to be parked like that
You can try he following
1) turn steering wheel lock to lock several times while stationary win ignition on to try and reset the steering angle sensor
2) unhook the car battery for an hour
If these do not work then the system is faulted and will need to be scanned to determine the underlying cause - my hunch would be a steering angle sensor fault which may require replacement or re programming
