    Started the 2012 Tundra truck this morning and had the traction control dash light on.
    Got my faithful OBD reader out, pulled C1290.
    The error is: abnormal zero point of steering angle sensor
    I did a couple of searches and found nothing.
    Any ideas?
    Thank You
    Greg

    Do you have a car insurance dongle plugged into your OBD port normally?

    I did install the TRD rear sway bar. And a trailer brake controller. We towed a car 200 miles or so without issue.
    Not sure if either of those were contributing factor or not. I did not get the code until yesterday when I went to start it first thing in the morning.

    Last trip pulling the car, it did the same thing. Drove a couple miles the next day without the trailer and the dash light was on, then it went off. I’m going to assume this is just normal behavior.
