    Try to just reset the steering angle sensor... Full lock the steering wheel to the left and hold for 2 seconds, then full lock to the right and hold again, Then return to centre.
    if the light does not go out then you may need someone with VCDS to reset the abs and steering angle sensor by performing a basic settings reset
