    Steering angle sensor is behind the steering wheel I think, have you had your tracking done since fitting your coil overs?

    Depends what the fault code associated with it is (00778 iirc is for steering angle sensor and should have another number underneath it), if its intermittent signal then probably needs replacing. If its it out range or something similar then get the wheel alignment done and re-calibrate the sensor and should be OK.
