I am searching for some possible way so that I can get the tilt or amount by which the steering wheel is rotated and without any use of special sensor for it , in Indian Cars like Swift D-Zire , Beat or ZEN

Carry a protractor with you? –  Paulster2 Jan 25 at 21:01

Are you asking if you can access a tilt sensor on the steering wheel by accessing something from the engine computer? Or are you wondering if there's an easy way to see that it's tilted? –  Bob Cross Jan 25 at 23:06

You can't. If there is no steering angle sensor to input that information to the vehicles computer, you can't extract that information. Can I ask what you're trying to achieve?

by measuring the angle i want to get the tilt of steering on a straight road , so that i can get the idea of wheel alignment ..! –  user4358 Jan 29 at 4:46
    
The steering wheel can be off centre without the alignment necessarily being out. Take it to a tyre fitter, they'll sort it out –  user4386 Jan 29 at 7:31
    
Sir i am interested in measuring it , not correcting it at i have to use its data for some other purpose. –  user4358 Jan 30 at 12:33
