my eps light is blinking

My car has 157690 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your vehicle’s electronic power steering system (EPS) relies on a computer-controlled electric motor to operate the steering rack. The control module for the EPS system has detected a fault in the system. If you request a diagnostic the responding certified Mechanic from YourMechanic will access the troubles codes that are stored in the control module and advise you of the specific fault and the cost to repair. You needn’t worry as EPS systems are fairly limited in extent and so the problem will be found readily.
