Hello. We will be happy to assist you. On your particular vehicle, there are two recalls related to the EPS concern you are having. If you call your closest Hyundai dealership and give them your VIN number they will be able to tell you if the recalls have been performed on your vehicle yet. If it has not been done they should repair and diagnose vehicle no charge. The first recall states that the EPS system must be recalibrated anytime EPS work is done to the vehicle. The second recall says that the EPS control unit makes it for the sea and the steering input signal and disable your power steering assist. I suggest that you call your closest Hyundai dealership because you will likely be able to have this concern addressed for free.
