My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Darryel. Thanks for contacting us tonight. If you have already replaced the electric power steering motor but need to have the error codes removed, one of our mobile mechanics can come to your location to complete a warning light inspection to remove these codes and determine if any electrical faults exist. However, if you need to have this issue diagnosed, you would want to set up a steering wheel is hard to turn inspection.
