Thumbs Up VDC Message after a left turn in the first minutes of the day.

2002 156 SW Selespeed JTS

Every morning in the first left curve of the day a would get a message VDC failure. Well I tried the following:

Checking around the reserve wheel because thereís a sensor somewhere back there.
Checked fuses
Changing tires and alignment.
Changed steering wheel left right switch. The whole piece because thatís the only place that the diag saw something or other. I threw my money away.

And nothing works until: I changed my 8 year battery. Bingo problem solved. If I would of started there I would of saved some money but the battery didnít show any symptoms, winter included, of being worn out.

I hope this helps somebody.
