the eps light just showed up in my car my steering wheel is not hard to turn does my steering fluid need to be changed? or is it something else? and can i still drive my car without checking out the eps
My car has 86000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.
If the EPS light is always on, it means the vehicle’s computer is reporting a fault in the electronic power steering system. Using a scan tool, a mechanic can download the trouble codes from the computer that have caused the alert, and then follow up on the codes with an actual system diagnostic to pinpoint, and thence resolve, the fault. Faults in electronic power steering systems can vary a lot: you could have a wiring fault, excess current draw, a problem with the controller, and so forth. The downloadable codes will narrow the diagnostic though. The warning light does not involve power steering fluid or any need to change fluid though. To get this resolved, just request a warning light diagnostic - EPS system and the responding certified mechanic will come right to your location.
