If a steering wheel position sensor were bad, this would set a trouble code in the vehicle stability system and turn on a warning light. It would not cause an actual difference in the way the vehicle steers. If you can slightly turn the wheel and the vehicle keeps tracking in the same direction, I would suggest having the front end alignment checked. If the toe-in is set incorrectly it can cause this concern.
Have the alignment checked and have the technician check for any play in the steering gear or other steering components. This type of problem should be evident with a good inspection at the time of alignment.

How do i fix... wrench light ford fusion 2006


You never need to top off fluids

If you do- you have a leak to be repaired

Check the vehicles systems for codes,
then google those codes to see the problem

TYPE: OBD & your code

It is going into ETC Failsafe or something

Do not use it at all,you may have converter ruining
cylinder misfires, from bad ignition coils

You add NO WATER to any vehicle

Distilled water & coolant only

this system can be tested for codes, I would suggest you have the dealer do this test, all the parts are very expensive so guessing is not a good idea. most probale cause is a wheel motion sensor on the steering column.
