Warning Light is on Inspection $79.99 - $89.99 Get a Quote

Hi Don. Thanks for sending the question tonight. The EPS light is a warning light that indicates a problem with the electronic power steering system on your Hyundai Elantra. In most cases, it does not impact the vehicle’s ability to start, however, if the issue is severe enough, it will disable the ignition and fuel system as a safety measure. To know what is causing this light, a warning light inspection would be required.
