2012 Malibu power steering torque sensor calibration

I'm seeking advice after changing my power steering torque sensor. I had lost all power steering assist and changed out the sensor. Now I have power steering again but my problem is that when I start the car, the steering automatically steers itself quickly to the left until it can't turn itself any farther. I have to hold the wheel with some effort to hold a straight line. Even more to turn to the right. I think this is a calibrating issue but have tried several scan tools with no luck. They are the less expensive scan tools. Any ideas if this can be done with a better scan tool? Thank you for any responses

Could of gotten it replaced for free at the dealer as long as your car is under 150k miles
