Is the clock spring same as steering control module (scm)

Conflicting research. I have code C2205- steering angle sensor with related codes. The steering control module is almost $500 from mopar and Chrysler. The clock spring seems to be an all inclusive unit and can be picked up used for $50. Am I right in assuming they are the same just difference in terminology?

After doing some research, I believe that the terms are used interchangeably.

Replaced the clock spring but it did nothing for the advisories. Looking closer the wheels seem to be off from my steering wheel so I'm going to look up how to check my steering and alignment components. Not sure if that would throw the sensor code or not though.

Yes, if your steering angle sensor says you are at 30-degrees but the car is moving straight ahead, I believe that would throw the code. The traction/stability system uses steering angle and lateral forces for a host of processes, so it is likely throwing a code.

Re: Is the clock spring same as steering control module (scm)

I think I found it. I can get a star scan tool and follow these instructions but problem is I have no idea how to adjust the I-shaft. "Case Number K56486465

Vehicle Issue ABS lamp on. Fault codes C1219 and U0126 logged in the ABS module.;The SCCM must never be replaced unless it has an internal fault related specifically to the SCCM module. If the following conditions are found: - fault codes C1219 and U0126 are logged in the ABS module - the SCCM has no internal faults (active or stored) - the ESP and ABS icons are on and - the Service Electric Brake System message appears The fix is relatively simple and does not require replacing an SCCM.

System or Component Will Not Clear,Will Not Reset,Will Not Turn Off;DTC / Error Message;ABS System,ABS Light / Anti-Lock Light;Yes - Continuously

Recommendation 1) Connect the Starscan tool to the diagnostic connector, power up the tool and set the ignition key to run. 2) Confirm C1219 and U0126 is stored or active in the ABS module. 3) Confirm no faults are active or stored in the SCCM. 4) Position the steering wheel so the tires are pointing straight ahead. 5) Use tool and go to the LID in the ABS or SCCM to observe SAS position. If greater than 360 degrees, you must re-center the SCCM/SAS. Fastest way to re-center the SCCM/SAS is: A) Remove knee blocker to access the steering column/intermediate shaft (I-shaft) knuckle bolt. B) Remove the bolt and slide the I-Shaft off the column shaft. C) While monitoring the SAS position with the tool, rotate the steering wheel at least 360 degrees so the angular position decreases towards 0 degrees (zero). Remember, if the tires are pointing straight ahead, we should be at 0 +/- 30 degrees, so we can reattach the I-shaft and tighten the bolt. D) Clear the faults in the ABS and turn the ignition switch off and then on twice to ensure the cluster warnings and respective faults do not reappear. If the fault reappears, refer to intermittent diagnostics. Please note that Service part numbers have been released to allow for the replacement of necessary components versus replacing the entire SCCM assembly.
