    Steering inoperative - Red steering wheel

    Greetings
    I have a 2007 Rabbit (golf) with a power steering rack issue. The dash shows the “Red steering wheel” indicator. Actually turning of the steering is next to impossible. My initial VCDS scan is enclosed below.
    I replaced the rack with a junkyard part, however now the dash light is a “Yellow steering wheel” indicator.

    Scan results from OEM Part and Junkyard part below. It appears they are not similar HW and SW versions… I am wondering if I might be able to replace the electronic components off the OEM rack onto the junkyard rack. Is it possible that doing so would allow for normal operation? I am grateful to the forum users to help me resolve this issue.

    Since the original problem was electrical in nature, why would you want to swap electrical components now?

    Is 1K1-909-144-M a suitable replacement for 1K1-909-144-L?

    We need a FOD check in this aisle, please.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    If the new rack is already in, why not carry out the well-known basic setting for it? It's likely the rack would work then. Ideally, also upload the correct characteristic curve to the rack beforehand.

    Thank you for replies and general wisdom.
    Does FOD mean foreign object damage?

    I replaced the harness when swapping out the rack. The fuses test good.
    What is the right direction. Do I find a re-builder who can repair my rack? Can the junkyard rack be flashed to work correctly?
    I was not completely certain that there is an electrical issue. the steering is surely bound up.

    Just wanted to conclude this thread, that the junk yard rack, once installed, once the Steering Angle Sensor was reset, the dash lamp went out and performs properly.
    The only note I would add is the the Steering Angle Sensor reset has to be done on the ground. Whereas it would not calibrate up on the lift...

    Thank you all for sharing your wisdom and time.
