    Doubt you have blown anything mate. You need to get it on VCDS and do some basic settings. Where abouts are you, as am sure someone near by can help out for some beer tokens :-)

    ^ This, but you may have to do it while moving at low speed.

    well i would at first instance advise the slow driving (below 5mph) and do a full lock to the left, hold for 3 seconds and then full lock to the right and hold for 3 seconds then return to centre and drive... if this doesnt resolve the issue then on VCDS you would need to reset the basic settings on the steering angle sensor and follow the procedure advised by rosstech:
