Question After Battery disconnection...

I'm going to be doing some work to my car (2007 328xi E91) this weekend which will require the battery to be disconnected during the work. I know I have to reprogram the clock and radio presets and set the limits on the windows and sunroof.

What I am fuzzy on is the steering angle sensor.

Can this be initialized by turning the steering wheel to the left lock (limit) and then back to the right lock (limit) and then to the center?

Thanks in advance.

I've never had to reset anything after disconnecting the battery other then resetting the time on the clock

Okay, I'll have to find it again.

I'm talking about a several hour disconnect while I tear the top part of the engine apart.

And since I have comfort access, I definitely don't want something trying to come alive.

PS...

Found it....
